Helpful Tips

Your New Braces

Congratulations on your new braces! After the placement of braces, it is normal for your teeth to be sore for about 3-7 days. To minimize discomfort, you can use Ibuprofen products, such as Advil or Motrin, as needed. Some irritation to your cheeks or lips is also normal, and wax can be used to counter it. If you feel anything sharp or poking, contact our office at (705) 675-1171. For emergencies during after hours or on weekends, please follow the instructions on our answering machine.

Brushing Tips

Brush thoroughly after each meal and snack
Use a soft bristled toothbrush
Braces can wear out a toothbrush quickly, replace as needed
Brush around all parts of your braces and all tooth surfaces
Be sure to watch the video “Brushing Techniques with Braces”

Elastics

Dr. Kyle may advise you to wear elastics. The elastics help straighten your teeth by putting pressure on them. When elastics are first worn, there may be some discomfort because of the added pressure.

Remember:

Wear elastics full time unless otherwise instructed. Take them off to eat and brush.
If you run out of elastics, visit our office for more.

Retention

Now that your braces have been removed, the second half of your treatment begins. This is called the retention phase. This phase is just as important as wearing braces. Patients need to wear a retainer once their braces are removed. The retainer is worn to hold your teeth in their new position, ultimately preserving your investment and keeping your teeth from shifting. Make sure that you follow the protocol that Dr. Kyle and his staff have discussed with you. Dr. Kyle will follow you for the next two years. Please bring your retainer to every appointment. Wearing your retainer as instructed will ensure you maintain that confident smile you have achieved!
