The offices of Dr. Normand Bach, Orthodontist are recognized for the quality of the care and service they provide at every stage of treatment. Whether you need braces, Invisalign or Incognito, Dr. Bach has all the necessary skill and experience in orthodontic treatments to give you a perfect smile and a perfect bite.
However, undergoing an orthodontic treatment also involves certain concessions and nutritional discipline. Therefore, you must avoid the following:
- hard and sticky sweets
- chewing gum
- Caramels, licorice and other sticky food items
- Ice and hard pizza crusts
Furthermore, you’ll have to follow the dental hygiene instructions to the letter, which means brushing for at least two minutes, twice a day. Otherwise, the risks of cavities and gum disease are greatly increased.
It’s also normal to feel some discomfort during the initial days after implementation of braces and other appliances. The pressure can be alleviated by taking anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, etc.) or acetaminophen (Tylenol).
Some patients will also develop sores on the inside of their cheeks. You’ll be given dental wax so the soft tissues can have sufficient time to adjust to the new hardware.
The team at the offices of Dr. Normand Bach, Orthodontist is here to answer your questions and support you during this brief initial period of discomfort.
An orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign represents a major investment of time and money. In order to prevent prolonging the treatment unnecessarily, it’s important not to miss or show up late for your appointments
Our team promises to support you during every stage of your treatment.
