An orthodontist in Glasgow is a highly experience dental practitioner. They train for a long time. First, they become qualified dentists which requires years of study. After that, they go on to specialise in the field of orthodontics which takes another couple of years. At the end of all that, they know an awful lot about straightening teeth and addressing the issues that manifest in the presence of a misaligned bite or other problems related to misalignment. That’s before they go on to get extra training in various teeth-straightening methods so that they can work with dental brands like Invisalign®, Six Month Smiles® and Damon.

One of the things that the orthodontist in Glasgow can offer advice about is how to have a better experience while wearing braces or any other equipment when you are having your teeth straightened. Below are some of the top tips that lots of patients find useful.
Pick the method that’s right for you
With so many options when it comes to teeth straightening these days, you can often choose between methods. If you think you will be self-conscious about wearing braces, you can talk to the orthodontist about this and they can recommend a method that is described as ‘invisible’. These are low-impact when it comes to the affect they have on the smile.
Carry a toothbrush and toothpaste
Get a small wash kit bag or a travel toothbrush and carry it around with you. This will help if you get any food stuck in your braces. After a while, you will get used to choosing foods that are less likely to do this. You can also cut up soft or sticky food so that you can chew them with your molars rather than having to press your braces against it.
