Teeth move throughout our lifetime. Our hormones, bone levels and habits all effect the positions of our teeth. This is why pacifier, thumb habits, nail biting and swallowing habits impact your child’s bite and smile. As we age our teeth shift over time as our muscle and bone balances change. Most people will experience more crowding of their teeth as well as collapse of their dentition over the course of a lifetime. Luckily orthodontic treatment can move the teeth into a healthy bite and create a pleasing smile for anyone 6-99.

Once your orthodontist finishes your phase 1 treatment or comprehensive orthodontic treatment then you will be instructed on how to wear your retainers. Wearing your retainers reminds your teeth nightly to remain in a straight position, as movement in your mouth will happen, whether you are a kid, teen or adult, even after treatments such as Braces, Damon Braces, Clear Braces, and Invisalign.

The first 3 months of retainer wear are critical for your bone around the teeth to strengthen to the new positions. After 3 months retainer wear is still important to help your body retain the straight tooth position. If you don’t wear your retainers after a week small spaces and rotations are most common. After a month you can expect your bite to change most often increasing in overbite and overjet. Your orthodontist can’t predict how much relapse will occur as every patient is unique.

If you lose your retainer contact your orthodontist for replacement retainers to stop any shifting from getting worse. If you find your old retainers after a period of time without wearing them, then you are lucky! Wear them! If they feel funny contact your Clayton County orthodontist for a retainer check to verify that the fit will hold your teeth.

First let me say I have a love hate relationship with my adult braces. My name is Tammy and I have learned to live in braces. Yes, the first week is rough but it is WORTH it! After 8 months in treatment I have discovered some tips to share that will make your orthodontic journey easier.

Wires slip out of place especially in the beginning while flossing and using proxy brushes. For a Damon bracket or a terminal brace, slide the wire back into place with a tweezer. If you can’t grip it cut the wire carefully with nail clippers. You Tube has some great videos!
For a bracket that is separated from the tooth secure it with orthodontic wax and schedule an appointment with your orthodontist for an extra care repair visit.
My lips would be sore and mouth would be sore after adjustments. Dry the area of the brace or wire with a Q tip or paper towel and place orthodontic wax.
Let me say it again if your mouth is sore. Rinse your mouth with warm salt water, 2 tablespoons per cup to help soothe a sore mouth from braces pain.
Lightly toast your bread before making sandwiches. This helped me keep my braces clean while enjoying lunch with friends.
Quick shout out to my orthodontist. I chose to get my braces at Homegrown Dental with Dr. Susan Podray. The staff have all be fantastic and I love my results. Homegrown Dental is the best! Thank You!!
