Braces Near You

We all dream of having a beautiful smile with straight teeth. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with perfectly straight teeth. At our office, we offer braces in Temple to help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Straight teeth not only lead to a more attractive appearance but it also improves your oral health. Traditional braces use wires and brackets to guide your teeth to their new, optimal positions. Contact us if you’re interested in learning more about receiving braces near you!

The Process of Receiving Braces

Are you interested in receiving braces in Temple? First, you will schedule a consultation with our dentist in NE Calgary. During the consultation, our dentist will evaluate your teeth and take radiographs to determine if you are an ideal candidate for braces and create a personalized treatment plan. You will need a full professional dental cleaning before your braces are bonded to your teeth. Each bracket will be individually bonded to your teeth. You will visit your dentist every few weeks for adjustments, which include the addition of elastics or wire changes.

Typically, your teeth will feel sore or more sensitive after you first receive braces and after each adjustment. The discomfort should be mild and last for a few days. It is recommended to stick to a soft food diet until you are comfortable enough to resume your regular diet. We will provide dental wax to place over the brackets if they cause you discomfort.

Caring For Braces

Braces can require additional time and care into your regular hygiene routine. It’s important to take time to clean around the brackets and wires to ensure no excess food particles are trapped. A Waterpik and interdental floss can be helpful to clean your teeth while wearing braces.

What to Avoid With Braces

Unfortunately, braces can limit your diet. There are certain foods that you should avoid while receiving orthodontic treatment to prevent damaged brackets and wires, which can prolong your treatment. The following are foods that should be avoided during your treatment:

  • Chewing gum
  • Popcorn
  • Hard candy
  • Caramel
  • Biting into hard fruits and veggies
  • Nuts
