Instructions for patients after placement of removable appliances

When we speak of removable appliances, we refer to all orthodontic appliances that can be taken out of and put back into the mouth.

Remember that hygiene is fundamental to the success of the treatment.

Instructions:

1. Keep up your hygiene, brush your teeth for 5 to 7 minutes after each meal, and use dental floss between your teeth.

2. Every time you brush your teeth, take the appliance out and brush it too in all its little parts.

3. After brushing your teeth, look in the mirror to check whether your teeth are clean and the appliance is clean and shiny.

4. The first few days after each visit, you will probably notice that your teeth are sensitive; this mild discomfort can be controlled by taking any anti-inflammatory. Take the medication indicated by your orthodontist.

5. Remember, any time you take out the appliance, to keep it in the box that we give you at the office, and never in any other place, like your pocket.

6. If you have any discomfort that persists longer than 2 or 3 days, call the office to check with us about it. (You will probably need some adjustments to your appliance)

Remember that hygiene is fundamental to the success of the treatment.
