Caring for your braces in Beaconsfield

At Garden View Dental Care in Beaconsfield, braces are one treatment we love to use, because we know that at the end of your time wearing braces you will be so much more happy and confident about your smile. We use the Six Month Smiles clear braces system, which means that you can be more confident about your mouth when you go out. Our braces use clear or tooth-coloured wires instead of metal and these are barely visible.

Braces must be treated with a certain amount of respect, and mouths can take a lot of wear and tear during normal daily living. You may need to curtail or alter some activities when you are wearing your braces in Beaconsfield (and everywhere else too!) Here are some suggestions for taking care of your braces: Certain foods should be avoided as they can break or loosen your braces. These foods include hard or tough-to-bite foods such as apples or crusty bread; chewy foods such as toffee and caramels; corn on the cob; hard, crunchy foods such as nuts, carrots, and popcorn. It is also not advisable to chew ice or chewing gum as these can break or stick to your braces.

I like playing sports. Will that affect my braces?

You can continue to participate in any sport if you have braces. When playing sports where there is a possibility of getting hit in the mouth, you’ll need to wear a specially designed mouth-guard. The mouth-guard, made of durable plastic, is designed to fit comfortably over braces and will protect the soft tissues inside your mouth.

How do I find out if braces are right for me?

If you are an adult (15 years and older) with crooked or spaced teeth and you’re not looking for a major alteration to your bite, this could be the solution for you! Most adults are candidates for Six Month Smiles braces.
