Our Dental Care has created a new editorial about how to keep braces clean and well maintained for people of all ages, giving people key things to consider to get the best from their braces.
Bakersfield, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2015 -- Braces are worn by between fifty and seventy percent of the population of the United States at some point in their lives. Surprisingly to some however is that many people choose to get braces in adulthood, as wisdom teeth can often cause crowding and misalignment that needs to be rectified. Our Dental Care is a dentist in Bakersfield, CA, that provides braces for children and adults alike, and has just published a new guide aimed at helping people adapt to them.
Our Dental Care's newest post explains that one of the disadvantages of braces is the tendency for food to get stuck between the wires, so individuals should pay particular attention to cleaning. Equally, cavity foods such as high-sugar drinks should be carefully moderated, as braces can provide a breeding ground for bacteria to build up, and sugar helps them breed.
The guide also recommends regular visits to the orthodontist to ensure the wires are in good order and to replace any damaged or broken wires, as well as keeping regular check-ups with the family dentist to address the health of the teeth as well as their straightness.
A spokesperson for Our Dental Care explained, "Our Dental Care is committed to helping people get the very best from their braces, and this new editorial has been designed as a primer for those just getting braces fitted, no matter their age. The guide is one of many published to the blog, which are all designed to help people maximize the positive results we create when they leave the practice and go out into daily life. We are committed to providing patients with the best dental experience in Bakersfield."
