If you want top-notch braces while you travel for the holidays, then you need to take what our orthodontic team says to heart. We are happy to give you the tips and information you need so you can stay on track toward your perfect smile while you’re visiting family members and friends. Those tips are:

-Keep up on oral hygiene: To do so, you can’t forget to pack your soft-bristled toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, and flossing tools. Make sure to brush after every meal and snack and floss at least once a day.

-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 as soon as possible. Our team will be happy to discuss a time that is best for you.

-Stay away from braces-harming foods: As you travel, you might be tempted to eat popcorn, caramel, taffy, apples, and other foods that can damage your braces. You need to resist! If you eat these foods and break your appliance, you would have to wait to fix it, which could delay your treatment and perfect smile.

For more information and details about how to take care of your braces, please reach out to our orthodontic team in Alhambra, California. We also encourage you to contact us at 626-458-8898 if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment with our orthodontist, Dr. William B. Hentosz.
