Follow-Up Dental Care after Braces

When the dentist finally removes your braces, you will be thrilled to see your beautifully straight teeth and smile. However, this is only the end of one phase and the beginning of another. Although your teeth are now perfectly aligned, they need follow-up care to keep them in top condition. 

Certain steps will now need to be taken:

• The dentist will have to fit a retainer to keep the teeth in place

• Rinsing with a fluoride-based solution is necessary to remove any bacteria build-up and strengthen the enamel

• Tooth whitening should be considered to further beautify your smile

Tooth whitening is optional but it’s only natural you would want white teeth to enhance your new smile.
