Question: I’m Getting My Braces off…  Will I be able to eat anything I want to now that they are off?

Answer: You maybe a little sore the first or second day of having them out. You may only want to get something soft to eat.

Dental opinion, Braces, I swallowed a rubber band.

Posted on Aug. 7th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Braces No Comments »

Need your opinion.  You know those little rubber bands you get when you have braces?  Well I was eating and did not notice that one had came off.  I know I just have eaten it without knowing.  Should I be worried?  Will I  be able to pass it or should I go to the doctor?  I never swallowed something like that before so I am a little worried about it.

Braces, Invisalign may not be appropriate for certain cases

Posted on May. 29th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Braces No Comments »

Invisalign may not be appropriate for certain cases of misalignment or complex bit problems. If Invisalign is not appropriate, traditional orthodontics can still be used for such conditions as: Crowding and spacing fret then five millimeters. Invisalign is currently approved for adults and teenagers with completely erupted permanent teeth who can faithfully follow the directions for treatment.

Braces, what can’t you eat?

Posted on Sep. 21st 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces 4 Comments »

I will be getting braces by the end of the month and I know that I will probably have some soreness.  At least that has been what was told to me by the orthodontic.  So I know what to eat that will not hurt as much,  but what I was wondering was what I should not eat with braces.  I forgot to ask that question when I was there.   Any information about that would be helpful.

How come people have rubber bands in their mouth when they have braces?

Posted on Sep. 3rd 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help No Comments »

The rubber bands are used to correct overbites, underbites and to help allign your jaw.  They are not alway used  it just depends on the treatment the person is having.

I have braces must I wear a mouth guard when playing sports like soccer?

Posted on Aug. 27th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help No Comments »

A mouth guard is an important to wear in order to protect your teeth from a sports releted accident.  When you have braces it is even more important that you do wear a mouth guard. If you play any contact sports  like football, hockey, soccer, volleyball any sport really that has the potential that you may get a blow in the face even without braces this will hurt.  With braces and no guard there is a potential of sever damage to your mouth.

Is there any dental insurance available for getting braces?

Posted on Aug. 14th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help, Dental Insurance, Dental Plans No Comments »

Yes you can get dental insurance and dental discount plans. With respect to dental insurance make sure the plan you want to get covers not only braces but braces for an adult if you are over the age of 19. In regards to dental discount plans age is not a factor and in general the average discounted saving is around 20% off.

My jaw and gums are hurting me. I have braces

Posted on Aug. 14th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Bridges, Dental Help, Gingivitis No Comments »

It maybe be because of your braces are areatating your gums.  Or that you might have the on set of gingivitis.  Either way you may want to check with your dentist to see what the issues are.

Please help I have not be doing what I should?

Posted on Aug. 13th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Bridges, Dental Help No Comments »

Don’t be scared the dentist may say something to you about it but they will not yell at you.. It is your parents that may be upset  since they are the ones paying for you to have the braces in the first place. (that is that I am guessing you are a minor) Either way just try and be better about wearing the required rubber bands and or head-gear if you do not, you are only going be in the braces for a longer time period. Who wants that. ?

Two of my teeth are growing in over my top line of teeth, if I get braces, will there be gaps in my gums?

Posted on Aug. 12th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help, Oral Surgery No Comments »

If  you decide to get braces the orthodontic dentist will not leave you with any gaps in you teeth. They may have to pull some teeth to make room for your teeth to adjust correctly.  Speak to your dentist they will tell you how they will go about correcting all  your issues.  This will help you feel better about the process needed.

Does it look like I need braces?

Posted on Aug. 12th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help No Comments »

You may just need a space maintainer. If you are concerned about needing braces then talk to your parent or parents about your worries. Keep in mind your parents may not be able to afford braces. Not every one can since even with insurance braces are not cheep. If they can great. If not just take good care of your teeth until you can afford them on your own.

IS HE TRAPPING ME? BRACES ALERT

Posted on Aug. 11th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help, Technology No Comments »

One should keep in mine for the most part a dentist or maybe in your case an orthodontic dentist will not suggest you do something unless they feel that is what is needed.  That is not to say that the first dentist you went to in India is necessarily wrong. They just might have two different opinions on how to correct the problem.

Overbite and dont get braces will it affect you later?

Posted on Aug. 10th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help, TMJ No Comments »

It can depend on the degree of your overbite. You may want to discuss this with an orthodontic dentist. After discussing it with an orthodontic dentist you feel that it would not cause any bite or TMJ issue latter, then it is really up to you weather you feel like you want them to correct the overbite of not.

My friend has an overbite, and she’s afraid that if she gets braces she’ll have to wear headgear

Posted on Aug. 7th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Cosmetic, Dental Help No Comments »

A headgear may be required to correct the overbite issue. However she may be able to wear it at night like I was able to. She should ask her dentist a head of time so she will know just what they feel will be required. In the end it is about correcting the over bite. Putting up the the headgear is a small issue when she get the results for the rest of her life.

Can i have braces, even though i have 19 points?

Posted on Aug. 6th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help No Comments »

Are the points you are talking about regarding your insurance and weather or not they will cover you for braces? If not then I have never hear of a having to pass a point system in order to get braces. If it is about your insurance covering you for braces, or in this case not covering you for braces. Maybe you need to look into getting a dental discount plan. They will normally give you about 20% off on the cost of braces. I have included a link below that may help you with that.

Braces, bleeding gums?

Posted on Aug. 4th 2009 by Dental Plan Review in Braces, Dental Help, Hygiene No Comments »

It could be that you are brushing to hard. Some times people brush harder when they get their braces because they want to make sure they are cleaning them of any food particles. If you see that you are brushing harder then you use to try going back to your normal brushing.

What kind of toothpaste do you need for braces?

Posted on Aug. 4th 2009 by Dental Plan Reviews in Braces, Dental Help, Dental Products, Whitening No Comments »

I found this great web site that I feel really answers your question I took a monet to copy some of the information they had for your review and then listed the web site address below

Ask almost any dentist or orthodontist and they’ll tell you there is no such thing as a “best” whitening toothpaste for kids or adults with braces. Actually, whitening toothpastes are products you should altogether avoid until you’re free of all your brackets and wires. You’ll have plenty of time to work on the color of your teeth after you’ve perfected your smile. For now, just focus on the straightening of your incisors, canines and bicuspids.
Effects
If you use a whitening toothpaste while belted in braces, you run the potential risk of having the area underneath the bracket a lesser shade of white than the rest of your tooth. It works much like coffee, cola, tea, red wine and tobacco, simply with the opposite effect. Instead of discoloring or yellowing your teeth like these items could, a whitening toothpaste will lighten the areas exposed, while never touching or altering the section of the tooth protected by the braces. And just because you drink dark cola or smoke, don’t think that the whitening agents in those toothpastes will counteract what you’re putting your teeth through. Stop using them all.
