Instead of making the same old “Lose weight” and “Exercise more” resolutions this year, try making resolutions for your braces. That’s right—you can make resolutions for your braces! Our Orthodontists, Drs. Liang and Liang, encourages this so you can have a more effective and even successful orthodontic journey. Some resolutions you can make for your braces this year include:

-Attend your adjustment appointments when necessary. Try not to delay them as much as possible

-Keep your braces in tip-top shape, which means do not break them

-Wear a mouthguard when you play in high-contact sports and participate in high-contact activities

-Brush regularly. It’s best to brush after every meal and snack

-Floss your teeth at least once a day

-Visit your dentist for a dental cleaning and exam every six months

-Take your orthodontist’s instructions to heart

-Clean your teeth and braces before every orthodontic and dental appointment
