Avoid Uneven Staining After Braces

Braces come with a little extra work but they end result is worth it! Straight teeth are both aesthetically pleasing and healthy! Speaking of a little extra work, Bensalem Family Dentistry of Bensalem, PA wants to remind our patients to take special care avoiding staining while you wear your braces. Staining while wearing braces could result in uneven marks when the braces come off.


Avoid Darker Foods and Drinks

In order to avoid staining, it just makes sense to avoid the foods and drinks that can stain your teeth. Cola, coffee, tomato sauce, and blueberries are among these types of foods. While it is not always easy to cut these foods out, enjoying them sparingly will help keep your teeth white. Also, be sure to rinse after you do consume any dark foods and drinks.


Do Not Skip Brushing and Flossing

Brushing and flossing are large parts of keeping away staining. If plaque or tartar sit on the teeth for long enough, the surface of your teeth can become stained and it can even go below your tooth’s enamel. Since plaque forms on teeth just hours after brushing, it is important to brush two to three times per day. Brushing after meals is a good idea.


Utilize Special Tools

There are special dental tools on the market to help those who are wearing braces. Floss threaders help you get the floss over and under your wires easily and quickly. There are also interdental cleaners for scrubbing around your brackets.
