If you want to have a successful Easter with braces, then our orthodontist, Dr. Myoungsoo Choi, is more than happy to help you. All you need to do is keep your appliance and smile in mind by taking good care of them. This can help you avoid orthodontic problems and inconveniences while you’re eating yummy treats, hunting for Easter eggs and spending time with family. So, to help you have a good Easter with braces in Katy, Texas, our orthodontist encourages you to do the following things:
-Avoid chewy and sticky candies: Chewy and sticky candies can damage your braces. This is because they pull the brackets off the teeth and even break the wires. Chewy and sticky candies can also cling to the braces and promote dental issues, like cavities. So, please stay away from these types of treats.
-Wear a mouthguard: A mouthguard can help you avoid breaking your braces and teeth if you participate in a potentially intense and dangerous Easter egg hunt (we all know they exist, especially if money is involved). So, make sure to wear a mouthguard while you hunt for eggs so you can maintain a top-notch smile when you get hit in the face with elbows or get shoved into trees.
-Clean your smile and appliance: Cleaning your teeth, gums and braces can help you keep your smile and appliance in tip-top shape. It can also help you prevent dental issues by removing the bacteria and sugar from your mouth. So, make sure to brush after each meal and snack and floss and rinse at least once.
