First of all, do not eat hard food. Hard food is easy to cause the brackets off and seriously affects the orthodontic effect. Once the brackets fall off, the correction course of treatment will be extended for 2-3 months, and some even extend for more than half a year. And the bracket is not reusable after falling off, to replace a new, the cost will also increase. Therefore, patients must pay attention to eating food.
Secondly, pay attention to oral hygiene. Foods residues on teeth can cause bacteria to break down and produce acids, which can lead to demineralized caries, gum growth and atrophy, and even tooth loosening. Be sure to use proper brushing methods when brushing your teeth. If the patient is found to have poor oral hygiene and periodontal tissue health, the orthodontic treatment may be interrupted or even terminated. Brush your teeth at least 3-4 times a day, morning and evening, and after meals.
Thirdly, it may feel a little uncomfortable at first, but it's normal to feel sore or even painful. Some adults even take a week to get used to it. The first period of time, you will feel there are a lot of things on the teeth, and even a few teeth bite is not on, these are normal. The patient needs to eat some soft food when you have oral cavity ulcer.
Finally, when the bracket falls off, the patient should contact the doctor immediately and stick on it as soon as possible, so as not to cause a lot of adverse effects if the bracket falls off for a long time. If the bracket falls off for a long time, it will relapse to the preoperative situation, which will prolong or even fail the corrective treatment.
