Braces are for Everyone

A shining and healthy smile starts with a beautifully straight teeth and, regardless of your age, it is never too late to reach your smiles goals! Having traditional braces has always been a proven method toward a smile transformation and it’s not just for children and teens. Adults are more than welcome to start braces!

Starting orthodontic treatment with braces is the standard for those who wish to straighten their teeth, correct their bite, or solve common dental issues like crowding and/or gap control. Braces can even be completely customizable through a variety of color options! If you are opting for braces to reach your smiles goals, here are a few things to consider.

We want you to succeed

We understand that people have busy schedules in their lives, but for us to make sure your smile journey is optimal, we highly recommend to come into the office for regularly scheduled check-ups. These frequent checkups allow us to make slight adjustments when needed as well as to provide the opportunity for us to discuss what you should do at home to care for your teeth and braces.

When having orthodontic treatment with traditional braces, we require that you to not eat sticky or hard foods as this may lead to damaged brackets. We highly suggest that you avoid sugared gum, caramel, hard candies, and slicing rather than biting into hard foods like caramel apples, ribs, and corn on the cob.

Oftentimes, the metal wires and brackets from braces can result in dental emergencies. The nature of broken wires and brackets from braces can cause pain and irritation to your cheeks and gums. This is why we also offer Invisalign - a clear aligner approach - to offer greater comfort as an alternative.

Additionally, excellent hygiene is the key to success for braces. Because of the nature of braces, we also recommend being delicate when brushing and flossing to avoid breaking the appliances used for traditional braces. This requires extra time to make sure all food particles and tarter are properly removed and cleaned.

At TLC for Smiles, we want to set you up for success. If you opt for braces at our clinic, our knowledgeable staff will guide you on how to care for your braces. On the day we place your braces, you are promised a complimentary kit including detailed instruction, a food list, oral hygiene pack, and lots of other fun dental freebies!


Alternatives to Braces

The decision as to how you would like your teeth straightened is ultimately up to you. If you would like to avoid broken wires and metal brackets, we offer new treatment options such as Invisalign. We offer to treat patients with Invisalign’s clear aligners because they are removable. By opting for Invisalign, this allows you to indulge in food worry-free of food restrictions.

If you would like to learn more about how braces and Invisalign can reach your smile goals, call us at (818)739-0182 to schedule a free consultation.
