Caring for braces

When it comes to taking care of your braces, the team at EDGE Orthodontics is here to help. Learn more about life with braces - and remember we are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Dental hygiene

We recommend flossing and brushing your teeth and braces after you eat as well as every morning and night. To make sure your teeth stay healthy and strong, we also encourage you to maintain your regular dental check-ups during orthodontic treatment.

Food and your braces

Most of our patients are happy to discover they can still enjoy most of their favourite foods during treatment. However, modifying your diet by avoiding hard or chewy foods and/or cutting some items up into smaller bites can help reduce the risk of breaking a bracket or archwire on your braces. After your fitting appointment, we will advise you on which foods to avoid.
