A bright, gorgeous smile is one of the keys to success in life. Whether it’s success in wooing the woman of your dreams or in getting that job you’ve had your eye on, a great smile gets your foot in the door in a variety of life situations.

Part of getting that winning smile is getting braces. We know that’s not the most appealing thing to hear, but it’s the truth. Without some type of orthodontic treatment, you’re resigning yourself to a life filled with mediocre smiles. That’s not going to help you in the dating or professional world.

Now, when you do have braces, you can’t just sit around waiting for them to work. You need to actively clean your teeth while wearing braces. Let’s look at a few things Dr. Perry M. Iacovetti recommends for caring for your teeth with braces.

Using the right flossers
Working floss in and around your braces can be a bit of a challenge. Luckily, we have some flossers that are made just for working around braces. If you don’t have a flosser you’re comfortable with, contact our staff today to get a recommendation on which flosser to purchase.

Brush after eating
The biggest thing you can do to care for your teeth when wearing braces is to brush after every meal. That seems like a lot of work, but it’s not. Just a quick brush to get rid of the food trapped in your teeth, and you’re good to go!

Caring for your teeth while wearing braces isn’t as difficult as it may seem at first. If you have any other questions about braces in Little Neck New York, please contact us at 718.224.0040 today.
