There are many reasons why kids might need braces. In some cases it’s to correct crooked or overlapping teeth. In others it’s to help your jaws grow out smoothly into their teen years, preventing overbites or underbites. Regardless of why your kid might need braces, there are a number of important safety tips they need to keep in mind.

Once you’ve installed braces for kids in Succasunna, NJ, your orthodontist will teach your kid a number of important steps for home care. This blog is to help you reinforce those steps at home.

While it’s always important to brush and floss, braces add additional challenges. For one, the additional gear makes it easier for foods to get caught in their teeth. Foods like popcorn, hard candies, sticky candies and gum are especially prone to getting caught in your kid’s braces. Your orthodontist can demonstrate how to use certain special tools for your kid to help them clean their braces and floss between their teeth.

Athletics

We recommend you wear a mouth guard for any many sporting activities and this is just as true for people with braces as without. During your kid’s next visit to the orthodontist, ask about getting an orthodontic mouthguard so your kid can continue to participate in their favorite athletic activities with an added layer of safety.

A lot of thought it given to what your kid eats when they are wearing braces, but what they drink is equally important and drinking the wrong drinks can increase risk of cavities, white spots and staining. Drinking sugary and acidic drinks like soda and sports drinks can be especially damaging. If your kid is going to use sports drinks during their athletic activities, we recommend watering them down to reduce the amount of acid and sugar while still allowing the hydration and electrolytes to do their job.
