Take Five: Straight Talk About Your Braces in Tampa

Published on February 15, 2019

invisible braces TampaHello, and welcome to our dental blog. At Kernagis Dental Excellence, our team supports healthy oral hygiene and regular, consistent check-ups. We do like to know that hygiene for braces is a bit different. Here are five critical concerns to keep in mind with braces in Tampa:

1. Be Careful What You Eat

Sweets and extra food stuck in hard-to-notice spaces may lead to plaque and yellowing around the appliances in your mouth. Avoid sweets, juices, sodas, anything that will stain your teeth. Also, sticky things like gum and caramel can break the equipment in your mouth.

2. Consider a Mouth Guard

Sports are the center of life for many Tampa families. We’re an active community and we love that about Tampa. Keep in mind that a quality mouth guard provides important protection for both your teeth and braces in Tampa.

3. Take Time for Gum Health
Maintaining healthy gums requires deliberate brushing and flossing. In the past, two minutes of quality brushing was acceptable. Braces in Tampa are trickier to clean. What’s another minute to make sure every nook and cranny is taken care of?

4. Check the Mirrors
Humans are exceptional at noticing flaws. Check your smile often in a mirror to keep your braces free of obvious food particles.

5. Smile with Confidence
At first, people will notice the change in your smile, but if you’re relaxed about your new braces, soon your friends will simply look past them without even noticing.

Thanks for visiting our blog today and we hope it helps. We’ve been treating patients in Tampa, Carrollwood, Brandon, and beyond since 2001. You name it – sleep apnea, Lumineers, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry—we do it. Meet with us today and we can go over the possibilities and straightforward options to meet your needs. Can’t wait to see you!
