Ebert Orthodontics Is Now

Enjoy-Your-Summer-With-BracesSummer is a popular time to get braces. For school-aged children, summer break is a natural time to squeeze in appointments with your orthodontist. Our top-rated orthodontist in Fort Collins, Dr. Ebert, wants you to know what to expect when you get braces. This will help you prepare for the process and allow you to enjoy your summer in style.

What To Expect With Your New Braces

Getting braces requires an adjustment to your everyday activities. Perhaps the most noticeable change is that braces feel weird at first! When you’re not used to having anything on your teeth, the bumpy ridges of your braces may initially be distracting. Don’t worry, your orthodontist is used to seeing people run their tongue over the front of their braces to see how they feel. This novelty will subside after a day or two.

One of the most common questions we get from our patients is“Will it hurt?” Typically, the most our patients experience is some tenderness after they have their braces adjusted after their visits, but this is temporary.

Brushing and Flossing

To keep your braces clean and to reduce the chance of cavities, it is highly recommended that you consistently brush your teeth morning and evening. Additionally, you will need to adjust the way you brush and floss. Ask your orthodontist what types of oral hygiene products they recommend to make flossing and brushing easier. Using a Waterpik (waterflosser) makes the process of flossing easier, which can lead to healthier gums.

What About My Diet?

The other major adjustment is in your diet. When wearing braces, it is important to avoid any foods that are hard, sticky, chewy, or crunchy. For example, crunching into a carrot could cause damage to your brackets and wires. Particularly for the first few days, you should opt for a softer diet that includes fruits and vegetables this summer. Enjoy citrus fruits, watermelon, grapes, and bananas. In addition to watching your diet, remember to practice good dental hygiene to maintain your healthy teeth and gums during the process.

When you visit our Fort Collins orthodontic office, our team can answer any questions you have about the process of getting braces. We are prepared to inform you about all your options, oral care, and treatment time. Our goal is to help you achieve the smile of your dreams!

“I’m 15 years old and have been coming to Ebert Orthodontics for the past 3 years. I love the staff, they are all really friendly and sweet! I am allergic to latex so I can’t have the colored bands, but last time I was in I was pleasantly surprised to see they had gotten me a special colored latex-free band! (It’s the little things that count!)”

“Dr. Ebert and her team have changed my life! Before my braces I was afraid to smile and show my teeth. After my braces got taken off I was confident and smiled showing my teeth. I cannot thank you enough for helping me.”
