Can You Shorten The Time Of Your Braces Treatment?

Article by Remarkable Smiles.

The likelihood that patients will have their braces removed sooner can be increased by strictly following treatment guidelines. Maintaining good dental hygiene or, in the case of aligners or other detachable equipment like bands, wearing them for the entire recommended treatment period each day can accomplish this.

While wearing braces, patients should maintain healthy dietary practices. Avoiding sticky or hard foods, such as gum, maize, popcorn, hard pretzels or chips, and most candy, can help the healing process. Damaged or missing brackets can increase the length of the treatment process. You will need to replace the bracket as soon as possible to avoid your teeth shifting.

Finally, just a tiny percentage of people know how much harder it is to brush your teeth when wearing braces, yet doing it correctly is crucial. The good news is that there are brushing strategies you may use to keep your treatment strategy on track.

The time someone must wear braces does not include the post-treatment retainer required to guarantee your Forever Smile lasts a lifetime, regardless of how long your treatment is expected to last.
