How Can I Confidently Go To School With Braces Or Invisalign Teen?

Starting The School Year With Braces Or Invisalign TeenLunsford McCaffrey Orthodontics wants you to show off your new braces or Invisalign Teen, and not feel the need to shy away from smiling. We’ve got some simple pieces of advice that will make all the difference this school year. The following are our tips for returning to school with braces or Invisalign Teen:

  • Make an orthodontic care kit: put together a small bag of items that will help you through the day. Dr. Lunsford and Dr. McCaffrey suggest a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and a small mirror. This way, no matter what happens or what you eat, you’ll be prepared to have bright, shining teeth, even in the middle of the school day.
  • Bring a water bottle: a water bottle is always a good idea, but especially for orthodontic health and braces or Invisalign Teen aligners. Water can be a quick solution in class or in the halls when you have something stuck in your teeth or braces.
  • Braces approved lunches: make it even easier on yourself, pack your own lunches! We recommend packing lunches with foods that can be easily consumed with braces. For easy lunches avoid foods like raw carrots, nuts, large pieces of meat, and whole apples.
  • Remove your Invisalign Teen aligners: always remember to remove your Invisalign Teen aligners at meal and snack times. This way, you’ll be sure to keep your aligners intact and on track with your Invisalign plan.
  • Brush after eating: with either braces or Invisalign Teen, make sure to brush and floss your teeth effectively after every meal. For Invisalign Teen, you should also brush your aligners before placing them back in your mouth.
  • New mouthguard: if your child plays athletic sports, let’s set them up with a brand new, custom fit mouthguard to protect their teeth throughout the school year.

By taking these tips into account, you’ll have nothing to worry about. Your braces and Invisalign Teen aligners will be clean and protected throughout the school day!
