Nonetheless, orthodontic treatments also entail compromises and dietary changes. You must therefore avoid;
- hard and sticky sweets;
- chewing gum;
- toffees, liquorice and other sticky foods;
- ice-cream, hard edges of pizza crusts.
You also have to cut fruits, vegetables and hard foods up before eating.
Furthermore, dental hygiene instructions must be followed to the letter: a minimum of two minutes’ brushing twice a day. Otherwise, your risk of developing caries and gum problems increases.
It is also normal to experience a degree of discomfort in the first days after having your braces or device fitted. You can reduce the pressure by taking anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin…) or acetominophen (Tylenol).
Some patients also develop cheek ulcers. You will be given orthodontic wax to give the soft tissues time to get used to the device.
Orthodontist Dr Normand Bach’s team is available to guide and support you through this transitory discomfort.
An orthodontic treatment with fixed braces or Invisalign represents a significant investment in terms of both time and money. You should avoid postponing or failing to attend appointments so as not to prolong the length of your treatment.
Our team guarantees its support through every stage of treatment. Talk to patients who have undergone orthodontic treatment: the results are definitely worth it!
