Take 5: Straight Talk About Braces

invisible braces Toms River

Having braces in Toms River uncovers unique concerns.

Hello, I’m Dr. Ronen Rotem of Rotem Dental Care. I support healthy oral hygiene and regular, consistent check-ups. Hygiene for braces is a bit different.

Here are five essential concerns to keep in mind with braces:

1. Be Careful What You Eat

Sweets and extra food stuck in hard-to-notice spaces may lead to plaque and yellowing around the appliances in your mouth. Avoid sweets, juices, sodas, anything that will stain your teeth. Also, sticky things like gum and caramel can break the equipment in your mouth.

2. Consider a Mouthguard

Sports are the center of life for many families. We’re an active community. I love that. A quality mouthguard provides important protection for both your teeth and braces.

3. Take Time for Gum Health
Maintaining healthy gums requires deliberate brushing and flossing. In the past, two minutes of quality brushing was acceptable. Braces are trickier to clean. What’s another minute to make sure every nook and cranny is taken care of?

4. Check the Mirrors
Humans are exceptional at noticing flaws. Check your smile often in a mirror to keep your braces free of obvious food particles.

5. Smile with Confidence
At first, people will notice the change in your smile. But if you’re relaxed about your new braces, soon your friends will simply look past them without even noticing.

I’ve been treating patients in Toms River, Manchester Township, Jackson and beyond since 1995. You name it–dental implants, sedation dentistry, dental implants–we do it.

I have the expertise, experience, tools, and team you need to maintain a healthy smile. I deal daily with periodontal, dental implants, sleep apnea, restorative dentistry, and sedation dentistry. The cost of a smile makeover, cosmetic dentistry, and celebrity-caliber teeth may be more affordable than you think.

Meet with me today and we can go over the possibilities and easy options to meet your needs. Can’t wait to see you!
