LIFE WITH BRACES

TAILORED TO FIT YOUR LIFE

Having braces is much more comfortable than it used to be, especially when you get your braces at Boulder Orthodontics. That’s because Dr. Lang offers many of the latest technologies designed to make orthodontics faster, more esthetic and more comfortable than ever.

When you have braces, the first few days after each appointment can include some tenderness. Though our treatment options minimize any discomfort, your teeth might feel a little loose but that’s great – it means their on the move. Some people like to keep some over-the-counter pain reliever handy during those initial days.


HELPFUL TIPS

  • We recommend you use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head. Electric and sonic toothbrushes are also acceptable.
  • Brush your teeth after meals and snacks.
  • If you have eaten while away from home, use your interdental brush to dislodge any food that may get caught around your braces.
  • Rinsing with water is another way to dislodge food from your braces and to keep sugar from sitting on your teeth.
  • Floss your teeth at least once a day.
  • We recommend that you have a check up with your dentist every 6 months.
