Life with Braces in McKinney

To learn all about braces, you have to understand what your life will be like when you get them. It’s all but common knowledge that life with braces requires you to avoid certain foods. Some of the foods to avoid when you have braces are:

  • Hard and chewy candies
  • Nuts and popcorn
  • Sticky foods like dried fruit

Additionally, there may be some instances in which your braces get damaged. You will need to know exactly what to do in an orthodontic emergency. For example, if a wire becomes loose, you can use a pencil eraser, or something similar, to push back the wire. You will also need to cover it with dental wax to prevent it from irritating your gums.

Life After Braces in McKinney

The job isn’t finished once your braces have been removed. Life after braces requires a lot of care to ensure the benefits of your orthodontic treatment are not reversed. An orthodontic retainer will be necessary to ensure your teeth remain perfectly straight after your treatment is finished.

  • I love this place.  The dentist is great but so is the staff and the ability to watch a movie while getting your teeth cleaned is a perk....My daughter loves to go in every month to get new colors for her bands.
    —Karen Vazquez
