Our patients at Brace Connection hate the thought of delaying their treatments and often ask us what they can do in between their adjustment visits to help. Today, Dr. Babaeian and our team thought we would provide some tips on how you can stay on track in regards to your treatment plan time.

 

The first thing we want you to do is keep your adjustment appointments. Each visit with Dr. Babaeian is carefully planned to move your teeth a specific way in a certain time frame. It’s important to note that missing an appointment can add weeks or months to your treatment time.

 

Next, we want you to let Dr. Babaeian and our team know right away if your experience any problems with your braces or appliances. A missing wire, rubber band, broken bracket, or lost/broken Invisalign aligners can delay treatment time, so we ask that you please give us a call right away to report any issues rather than waiting until your next visit.

 

Make sure you wear your rubber bands...

Did you know that The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has designated the month of March for focusing the public's awareness on what to eat?

 

Take a look at our Top 9 Foods That Damage Your Teeth.

 

 

 

1. What you eat matters While these hard candies seem harmless, eat too many and the constant exposure to sugar can be harmful to your teeth. Hard candies also put your teeth at risk because in addition to being full of sugar, they can also trigger a dental emergency such as a broken or chipped tooth. Better alternative? Chew sugarless gum that carries the ADA Seal.



 

 

2. Ice is for chilling, not chewing You’d be surprised at how many people think ice is good for their teeth. It’s made of water, after all, and doesn’t contain any sugar or other additives. But chewing on hard substances can leave your teeth vulnerable to a dental emergency...
