As an orthodontist, we understand that while there are several common problems with braces, as a whole the procedure can be completed without any significant issues. Most of the problems that patients have with braces can be prevented by eating a diet that won’t damage your teeth. For example, cutting out or reducing sugar intake along with hard objects like nuts and candy. These things are known to create many of the problems listed above.
At Nowlin Orthodontics, we also recommend that patients throughout the Tulsa area take good care of their teeth by brushing and flossing throughout the day in addition to having their teeth professionally cleaned.
