Are you traveling for the holidays? If so, then you need to do what is necessary to keep your braces in top-notch condition. This means you need to care for them regularly. If you do so, you can stay on track toward your perfect smile as you visit and celebrate with family members and friends. Our orthodontists, Drs. Hamilton and Manuele, are happy to help you by giving you the tips you need.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: You should brush your teeth after each meal and snack and then floss your teeth at least once a day. If you can floss more, do it. To do these things, you need to remember to pack your soft-bristled toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste, dental floss, and dental flossing tools.

-Reschedule your adjustment appointment: If your next appointment is scheduled for when you will be out of town, then it’s best to reschedule it sooner than later. Our team will be happy to discuss a time that is best for you.

-Stay away from braces-harming foods: Avoiding these foods can help you avoid damaging your braces, which can also help you stay on track toward your top-notch smile. So, make sure to stay away from hard, sticky, and hard-to-eat foods.
