Four Tips to Keeping your Fixed Braces Clean

When you wear braces, it’s essential to keep them as clean as possible to minimise your risk of dental decay. If you’ve got fixed braces, here are 4 top tips to help you keep them in tip-top condition.

  1. Perfect your brushing technique: brushing is incredibly important when you’ve got fixed braces because the bands and brackets tend to trap food and bacteria. You can carry on using your normal toothbrush or use specially designed instruments, which make cleaning braces easier. Brush at least twice a day, for 2 minutes each time, and take care to target every part of the mouth.
  2. Brush after eating: when you have fixed braces, it’s very easy to get bits of food stuck in them, and it’s beneficial to carry a brush with you so that you can clean your teeth after meals. Wait around 45 minutes to allow your enamel to recover, and then brush.
  3. Floss: it’s helpful to floss when you have braces, as you can’t remove everything with a brush. It can take a bit of getting used to flossing with braces, but it will soon become second nature. If you have any questions or you need tips, your dentist will be happy to help.
  4. Dental checks: when you see your dentist, they can give your teeth a much more thorough clean than you can achieve at home with a toothbrush. Your dentist will clean your teeth at every appointment, as well as having a look at your braces and checking how your new and improved smile is coming along.

If you wear braces, and you need advice to help keep them clean, we’re always happy to help. Don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give us a call.

The Best Winter Foods to Eat with Braces

Temperatures are plunging, and it’s time to embrace hearty foods to warm the cockles. If you’ve got braces, you may be looking for wintry dishes that are easy to manage. Here are some suggestions for the best winter foods.

Potatoes: potatoes are a great option for people with braces. Mashed potato is easy to make, it’s filling, and it’s easy to eat. Add mash to mince and make a cottage pie or serve with cod fillets, parsley sauce and peas.

Eggs: eggs are one of the most versatile foods out there. They’re also really easy to chew with braces. Start your day with scrambled eggs or round off a busy day with a simple omelette and salad.

Porridge: porridge is a winter staple. It’ll warm you up, and keep you full until lunchtime. Oats are rich in fibre and they release energy slowly. If you have a sweet tooth, drizzle over some honey or add berries, rather than adding sugar.

Soup: nothing warms you up in the winter like a big bowl of soup. Microwave or heat a tin of soup on the hob for a meal in seconds, or make your own creations using fresh vegetables and meat. If you’re struggling with fresh bread, soak the bread in your soup and it will become much softer and easier to tolerate.

Pasta: pasta is a great lunchtime or dinner option. Cook your pasta until its soft if you have braces, as this will make it easier to break down than if you leave it al dente. Add a jar of sauce, or make your own using chopped vine tomatoes, garlic, olive oil and oregano.

If you need any advice about which foods you can eat and which to avoid, your Chelmsford Dentist will be happy to help. Simply give us a call, or pop in and see us.

Benefits of Six Month Smile at Harlow dentist

Orthodontic teeth straightening can have a dramatic impact on your appearance by realigning teeth and improving profile. However, there are also down sides to wearing traditional fixed braces. Many patients do not like fixed metal braces because they can look very unattractive. They also have a reputation for being uncomfortable with the wires and brackets causing irritation to the soft tissue of the mouth and painful brace tightening hurting the teeth and jaw. But the most common complaint by far is the length of treatment time with conventional braces. This can be as much as three years, which if you are a teenager can seem like a very long time.

In the last few years many new orthodontic devices have been released that aim to tackle these problems and improve upon some of the complaints patients have had. One of the most successful of these new treatments is called the Six Month Smile. As you might have guesses from their name, they aim to straighten teeth in an average time of six months. Six Month Smile braces are manufactured in America, where they were first pioneered, and consist of smaller and more discreet wires and brackets. These are usually tooth coloured, which means they reduce the physical impact of braces.

Six Month Smile braces also require fewer unpleasant tightening appointments with the dentist yet still have remarkable treatment accuracy. In fact, the Six Month brace makes an accurate post treatment prediction more likely than with any other brace so you will know how your teeth will eventually look before treatment even begins. Dentists in Harlow are currently offering Six Month Smile braces as an alternative to traditional fixed metal braces. If you or your child requires teeth straightening, ask for more information about how the Six Month Smile treatment could benefit you. Call 01245 268 494 for a free consultation at Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford.

Self-confident smile with Inman aligner form Billericay dentist

One of the first things we notice about people when we meet them is their smile. It is one of the most important ways of communicating that humans have and so it is important that you have a good one. A lack of confidence in smiling because of self-confidence issues caused by your teeth can have a real impact on your life so it is important that you are comfortable and happy with your teeth.

Patients who do not have naturally straight teeth can regain this self-confidence by using orthodontic straightening devices, more commonly known as braces. Braces have been used for decades to straighten teeth but have previously been uncomfortable and ugly metal brackets that can result in a further loss of confidence. Although the teeth would eventually be straight, the procedure involved wearing the unseemly braces for up to two years, which did little to restore patient’s confidence, especially those in their difficult teenage years.

However, with the recent advances in dental technology there are finally more pragmatic solutions to misaligned teeth. One of the most recent and effective braces to emerge is the Inman aligner. A discreet and incredibly fast-acting brace that can achieve visibly straighter teeth in as little as six-months, a reduction of 75 per cent on previous treatment times.

The aligner achieves these incredible results by utilizing the force of a coiled spring. The spring sits on the tongue side of the teeth and gradually moves the lateral teeth out creating room for the front teeth to move into. These are then aligned using a straightening bar that runs along the front of the teeth. This bar is the only visible part of the brace.

The aligner may cause some initial discomfort when fitted but this will usually fade after the first week, but this is common to all orthodontic appliances. Other than this the treatment is relatively free of discomfort. Another benefit of the Inman aligner over traditional fixed braces is that it can be removed for important social or professional occasions.

If you are suffering from overcrowded teeth or lacking the confidence that comes with a beautiful smile, ask a dentist about the Inman aligner and see whether it could bring the smile back to your face. Call 01245 268 494 for a free consultation at Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford.
