Tips for having Braces on During the Easter Break

Easter is a great holiday full of Easter egg hunts, delicious treats, and family time. You don’t want to put a dampener on your day by suffering problems with your braces or Orthodontic appliances, do you? We are happy to help you avoid any problems as much as possible over Easter.
Here are some top tips to help you keep your braces safe while also enjoying the Easter fun:

- Keep well away from chewy and sticky sweets or crunchy hard chocolate treats: Chewy, sticky crunchy and hard sweet treats can break your appliance by knocking the brackets off the teeth and even bending the wires causing inconvenience for both you and your Orthodontist. They can also stick to the teeth and braces and cause General dental problems, like cavities – This is why it is always best to stick to Brace friendly treats both over Easter & the time you have your Orthodontic appliances on – It sets you up for good life-long habits.

- Be mindful of your braces during Easter Egg hunts – it is easy to bang into people when hunting for treasure, especially chocolate treasure! You don’t want to get a nasty bang to the mouth causing any cuts or grazes.

-Always keep your smile clean and clean your Orthodontic appliance daily. Make sure to brush and floss your teeth and braces regularly throughout the day, like after each meal or snack keeping your sugary snacks over Easter close to your mealtimes to avoid sugar been left on your teeth throughout the day. This can help you maintain a healthy smile and help you avoid any long term dental problems.

 

Have fun and Enjoy your Easter!
