What does summer mean? No school, fun, pool parties and, our favorite, BBQ’s! Those BBQ’s can be fun for our stomach, but bad for our brackets. We already know, now that Halloween has passed, that sticky sugary things can break our brackets. However, chewy things can as well. That means, burgers, hot dogs, steaks, rubs, corn on the cob, all these tasty foods can not only break a bracket but, a few brackets at a time!
Be mindful of those awesome foods. Also, it is imperative to take a quick break from your summer fun and spend 20 minutes at iSmile Orthodontics in White Plains or Yonkers for your appointment.
Breaking a bracket can set you and your perfect smile a month or two back. This means MORE TIMES IN BRACES! Once you notice that your bracket is broken, contact us so that we are able to accommodate your time as best we can!
With more food comes more brushing! During these summer BBQ’s its important to improve your brushing techniques. If your teeth look like the photo below, let us work harder together to stop plaque from building up, making your teeth yellow, and breaking the brackets off. How?! Better brushing and more flossing!
