How to Avoid "Braces Face"? Must-see Knowledge Before Orthodontic Treatment!

The main appeal of orthodontic treatment is to become beautiful. If the teeth are straight, but the face is sunken and deformed, is it not a waste of money to suffer!


After consulting a professional doctor, he said that women with thinner faces, especially women over 30, have a series of problems such as sunken temples and cheeks, and more prominent cheekbones during the process of teeth straightening (commonly known as "braces face"). The probability is greater than others, but it is not certain, and there are ways to prevent and improve this problem.


1. Why is a "braces face" formed?


Mainly because of muscle atrophy! During orthodontic treatment, changes in diet will weaken the movement of the masticatory muscles, which may result in atrophy of the masticatory muscles for a long time. Muscle atrophy and fat loss directly result in a decrease in the fullness of the temples and cheeks, and the cheekbones look relatively prominent.


2. Choose a professional doctor for wearing braces


To choose a professional doctor, the professional doctor will customize an ideal orthodontic plan based on the real condition of your teeth, taking into account all factors, which is the premise and guarantee to avoid side effects of orthodontic treatment and achieve the ideal orthodontic effect.


The professional doctor will control the time and size of the afterburner according to the movement of your teeth, and will not cause the braces to face because of the excessive afterburner, which will lead to the pain of straightening your teeth and the inability to eat.


3. Wear braces to choose the appropriate correction method


Choosing fixed orthodontics, it is objectively inconvenient to eat and brush teeth. Many people who wear braces will choose to eat less or choose to eat foods that are easy to chew, which will reduce the amount of chewing muscle movement and cause muscle atrophy.


And choose the invisible braces without brackets (invisible braces ), which can be removed by themselves when eating and brushing, there is no restriction at all, you can eat whatever you want, and you will not intentionally control your diet because you think it is troublesome to brush your teeth, which is more conducive to maintaining normal. The amount of chewing exercise and the normal state of the muscles.


What should you pay attention to in your diet? Don't often eat foods that are easy to chew. In order to maintain normal chewing strength, you can eat some tough foods, such as sweet potato jerky, beef jerky, and gluten.


But pay attention to the way of eating. It is recommended to cut into small pieces and put them in the back tooth area to chew, and both sides should be used. Chewing on one side will lead to a "big face".


4. Follow the doctor's advice to wear the braces retainer


Don't think that it's over when you take off the appliance, you can start to let go of yourself. Taking off the retainer is the real completion of the whole process of orthodontic treatment, so it is necessary to follow the doctor's advice, wear the retainer on time, minimize the time of the whole process of orthodontic treatment, and prevent the occurrence of secondary correction.


Do you know? The key is to choose a good doctor, correct the method and exercise the masseter muscles so that you don't have to be too afraid of "braces face" when wearing braces. And even if it occurs, it can be improved and recovered with the recovery of chewing function after the braces are removed.
