Cleaning Around Braces
No matter what type of braces you have, the goal is the same—to apply constant pressure over time to move your teeth into correct alignment. Use floss threader or an orthodontic floss with a built-in tongue threader, such as Oral B® Super Floss®, to help thread the floss under the main wire of the braces.There are several types of tooth fractures and breaks, each of which requires different treatments. These include:Minor cracks —Also called "craze lines," these are surface cracks that affect only the outer white surface of the tooth, called the enamel. Minor cracks rarely need treatment. However, your dentist may lightly polish the area to smooth out any rough spots. instrument dentaire
Cracked tooth — This type of fracture involves the whole tooth, from the chewing surface all the way down to the nerve. The pieces remain in place, but the crack gradually spreads. Cracks can sometimes be repaired with filling material. The tooth often will need a crown to prevent the crack from getting worse. If the pulp (nerve and other live tissues) is damaged, you may need a root canal as well. Chips — Minor chips don't always need treatment. localisateur apex
Your dentist may suggest repairing the damage with filling material to prevent it from getting worse or to make the tooth look and feel better. If the chip is very small, the dentist may polish and smooth out the chipped area. In addition, you can maintain your dental health while you’re wearing braces by using an interdental cleaner as an alternative to a standard toothbrush. An interdental brush kit like Oral-B’s Interdental Brush System is designed with an angled head and triangular replaceable brush head to fit around braces.joypex
Kick those nervous habits.Don’t eat hard, sticky or sugary foods, or drink fizzy beverages. Avoid foods such as popcorn, nuts, chips, bubblegum, toffee, caramels and cookies. And don't chew on ice cubes or drink soda pop. All of these things can damage braces and/or cause tooth decay.
