New Year’s Resolutions You Can Make for Your Braces

Posted .

Have you run out of New Year’s resolution ideas? If so, our orthodontist, Dr. Scott Vincent, has a recommendation for you: make a resolution for your braces! If you focus on your braces this year, you could have a better orthodontic treatment, you could have a top-notch appliance, and you might even get your braces off faster! Some resolutions you could make include:

-Regularly attend your orthodontic adjustment appointments

-Don’t break your appliance (This means you need to stay away from hard-to-eat and sticky foods that break the brackets and bend the wires)

-Protect your mouth with a mouthguard when you participate in high-contact sports and activities

-Brush after every meal and snack

-Floss regularly (You should floss at least once a day. If you can floss more, do it)

-Receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months

-Use your orthodontic bands the way they are supposed to be used

-Clean your teeth and braces before every orthodontic adjustment appointment
