Great Teeth In Calgary

Now that you have your orthodontic braces on you need to pay special attention to brushing and flossing.

Remember food can get trapped around braces,

so you have to make sure that you're brushing regularly to avoid an increase risk of tooth decay.

Keep a toothbrush with you and brush after each snack and meal.  Try to avoid drinking sugary sodas and skip the chewy, sticky candies.  Eating an apple and a piece of cheese makes for a healthy snack and reduces the amount of sugars/acids in the mouth.

This Calgary Orthodontic Office wants you to have the best smile ever. That means not just straight teeth, but healthy teeth that are cavity free. Have fun on your summer vacation, but don't forget to pack your tooth brush and floss!
