How to Deal with Problems After Wearing Braces?

Ⅰ. Oral problems after orthodontic treatment:

1. Discomfort

After applying force to the teeth for a few hours, due to the remodeling of the tissues around the teeth, it will cause slight soreness and discomfort, which will basically disappear in about 3 days, so there is no need to worry.

2. Swelling and bleeding gums

Tartar on your teeth can cause swollen and bleeding gums if you don't brush your teeth carefully. When these gingivitis symptoms appear, you should strengthen the maintenance of oral hygiene and learn the correct brushing method as soon as possible. Get into the habit of brushing your teeth after meals and flossing daily.

3. The correction device falls off

In the process of orthodontic treatment, if the orthodontic device falls off due to any reason, you should communicate with the doctor in time and follow up on time, because orthodontic treatment is achieved through these small devices on the teeth. If left unchecked, it will prolong the treatment time.

After the ortho brackets fall off, it is recommended to bond as soon as possible. The earlier the better, try not to exceed 2-4 weeks. The specific time can be arranged according to your own situation and the doctor's time.

Patients are advised to maintain oral hygiene after wearing braces, and to brush their teeth after each meal to avoid swollen gums, demineralization (white spots on the surface) and caries.

In addition, after the patient wears the braces for the first time, they should not eat food that is too hard, too tough, sticky to the teeth, or high in sugar, so as not to cause the appliance device to fall off, affect the treatment effect, and prolong the treatment time. At the same time, pay attention to follow-up visits on time.
