Our specialties in braces have corrected the smiles of patients around the Chula Vista area for decades. Braces are produced from durable materials that apply pressure to shape your teeth into their natural alignment.

This appliance provides the best results when performed by an experienced and dedicated professional. When braces have been applied to your teeth, it is essential to adjust the type of food you consume.

Chewy, sticky, or messy food can attach to the wires, which can damage them and interrupt the straightening of your teeth. This does not imply that you do not have to throw your favorite snacks in the waste bin forever, because after your teeth have been fully restored, you can welcome foods like caramel cheesecake and buttery popcorn back into your life!

You must dedicate yourself to a more diligent dental hygiene routine than ever when you have braces on. Brush your teeth thoroughly, make sure all surfaces have been cleaned and the correct amount of time is spent on them.

What are the benefits of braces?

Crooked teeth are not only unsightly; they can lead to other problems as well.

  • Misaligned teeth become more difficult to clean. Without the ability to floss between teeth, plaque will build up and lead to cavities. Stop this decay before it starts by returning teeth to their normal position.
  • Teeth become more exposed as they shift out of position. Teeth depend on their neighbors for protection, and an exposed tooth is more vulnerable to chipping, cracking, and shifting further out of alignment.
  • Pain in the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) becomes more likely with crooked teeth. This joint, the main hinge that connects your jaw to your skull, can become strained if teeth are unbalanced or your bite is misaligned.

How do braces work?

Traditional braces consist of metal brackets that are attached to each tooth, connected by wires that hold the assembly in place. These appliances work over time to shift the position of teeth, gradually moving them into the proper position. While wearing braces, you will need to return every six to eight weeks for follow-up appointments, so we can adjust the braces and track the progress of your treatment.

How do I care for my teeth while wearing braces?

You must commit yourself to diligent daily hygiene. Braces make teeth more difficult to clean, but resist the urge to slack off, since your oral hygiene becomes more important than ever. Brush and floss daily. Some patients find that an electric toothbrush is better suited to cleaning around the brackets.

Also, try to avoid chewy or sticky food that can become caught in the wires. These types of foods are more difficult to chew while wearing braces and tend to get stuck in out-of-the-way places, making cleaning difficult. You won’t need to say goodbye to these foods forever, though. Once your braces are off, you can welcome them back into your life.

Ensure your gums and teeth receive the recommended amount of care and attention. If you practice a consistent brushing, flossing, and cleaning routine, you will minimize the risks of periodontal disease and tooth decay.
