After Tightening Braces

After Tightening Braces: Tips and Practices

  1. Maintain dental and braces cleanliness by brushing your teeth after every meal and before bedtime. You can brush as usual, but be cautious around the braces.
  2. You may experience toothache or tooth mobility, which is normal after braces adjustment and can last for 5-7 days after each adjustment.
  3. You may develop sores or irritation on your tongue or cheek. This is normal, and you can use orthodontic wax to prevent irritation or soak a cotton swab in water to cover the sharp edges of the braces.
  4. Keep the braces in good condition, avoiding breakage or distortion. Be cautious with hard or sticky foods, and pay special attention when engaging in sports to prevent impact-related damage.
  5. Collaborate and follow your orthodontist’s recommendations diligently, especially concerning wearing rubber bands or additional appliances.
  6. Try to adapt to the braces as there might be a feeling of tightness, discomfort, or annoyance during tooth movement.
  7. Regularly visit the dentist as scheduled.
  8. If the braces become loose, contact the clinic to check the appointment for corrections.
