Dr. Brad Pezoldt and the team at Pezoldt Orthodontics are proud to provide braces to their patients in Modesto CA. Dr. Brad Pezoldt has some tips for his patients that are beginning

Orthodontic Treatment with Braces:

  • Brushing: Dr. Pezoldt recommends that his patients brush their teeth 4 times a day. Using a soft bristled toothbrush, make small circular motions and brush the surface of each tooth and around each bracket and wire.
  • Flossing: Dr. Pezoldt suggests that his patients floss their teeth every night to make sure they are clean before bed. It is normal for your gums to bleed a little when you first begin to floss, but if it continues for a stretch of time, it is important to notify Dr. Pezoldt at your next appointment.
  • What to eat: A general rule to follow with braces, is to avoid food that is hard, sticky, gummy or chewy. By doing this, you prevent breaking the bond that holds the brackets on the teeth.
