Before Getting Braces

Getting braces is a normal routine. In fact, nearly 75 percent of people have some type of problem with their adult teeth that causes them to get braces. Getting braces is an exciting thing especially if you are self-conscious about your teeth and before you know it, you will have the teeth you desire.

If you are about to get braces, you might want to enjoy some things that you are unable to do while you have them on such as:

Eating certain foods:

· Hard candy

· Gum

· Taffy

· Bagels

Brushing normally:

After you get your braces on, brushing your teeth normally is not going to be the same and using the happy birthday trick is not going to be enough. To prevent long term discolored boxes resulting from your braces, you will really need to get underneath the wires.

Keep your eye on the prize of having beautifully straight teeth and the extra brushing and temporary “Cant have” foods will be worth it.
