Ask The Orthodontist
How to care for your braces - part 3
Besides brushing, flossing is hard but is mandatory. You
can get floss threaders, but if you can slip the floss under
the wire pretty easily that is fine. Just so long as you can
floss between each tooth every day. Also it should be real-
ized that when under an orthodontist's care, the patient
should still return to the dentist for routine cleanings and
If you have a retainer, biteplate, or another removable
appliance, scrub them with toothpaste to clean them each Licensed Specialist
day. You can use baking soda too, or an effervescent den-
ture cleaner. With the removable appliances, a common problem is breakage
or loss. Common mistakes are to wrap the appliance or retainer in a napkin
as this "hides" the appliance so it commonly gets thrown away. Also, storing
the appliance in your pocket without placing it in its case can result in the
plastic or acrylic experiencing unnecessary force, and then it can break easily
or have wires distort. This can cause teeth to move. As silly as it may seem,
if a pet is in the house, always keep or temporarily store the appliance out of
reach of the pet. Dogs especially love the scent of their family or food, and
can make a snack out of your appliance.
Even misplacing an appliance in its case can cause permanent loss in a
public place such as a school. A simple solution to assist in return of the
appliance is to put your name and phone number with a permanent marker
on the case. Many people participate in contact sports when retainers etc.
are not worn and with today's busy schedules, it is sometimes hard to trace
where the appliance may have been lost.
