Braces After Care

Premier orthodontics in Utah from top dentist professionals

For an improved smile and correction of overcrowded teeth, braces are a useful orthodontic treatment. In order for the procedure to succeed, however, patients must be aware that braces require an extra level of care. If you have an appointment scheduled at Abundant Dental for braces application, your Utah dentist will discuss the procedure details with you. Our general aftercare recommendations are as follow:

  • Check Wire Ends - After applying your braces, we will check for any exposed wire that may injure your mouth. If you notice any sharp ends we missed, or a wire becomes loose, schedule an appointment to have the wires adjusted. You will be provided with a soft silicone gel that you can apply to rough edges.
  • Clean Properly - We will provide you with the proper supplies to clean your braces. It is important to remember that braces need extra care. You will need to brush after every single meal and floss at least once daily. It's also best to avoid candy and hard or sticky foods.
  • Manage Pain - After the initial application, your gums and teeth may be sore. Pain can be managed with over the counter painkillers and warm salt water rinses.
  • Protect Your Mouth - If you play contact sports or an instrument, you may need to wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth. Your Utah dentist will discuss any additional steps, such as headgear, retainers, or elastics.

I have never had such a pleasant experience at a dentist in my 54 years. They explain everything and are very attentive to my question and concerns. The staff is incredibly friendly and you can tell it is genuine. Highly recommend!!

I had a bad experience with another dentist and was afraid to go in for the last few years. I found abundant dental and Dr Hilton and staff. He is the kindest, funniest and most personable dentist I've ever had and made me feel  comfortable while getting my work done. I'm not feeling afraid of dental work anymore and am so pleased with my results and the interactions I've had with everyone here. I would recommend them to anyone who needs work or cleanings done.

I cracked a tooth last night. Dr. Hilton called me back - Saturday night! - and got me in today (Sunday). The whole team was professional and so nice. I was really in pain and upset and they took great care of me!

Dr Townsend was amazing the staff there are so nice and make you feel so comfortable. I got my wisdom tooth pulled I was so nervous but he did it so fast and smooth I was impressed and then he even text me that night to see how I was feeling!! I'd most definitely recommend abundant dental in Murray!!
