Quick Tips to Make Braces Fun!

Some people can hardly wait to get braces! Others want nothing to do with them for a variety of reasons, mostly stemming from fear of the unknown. But getting braces can be fun! Here are some quick, helpful tips to help create a positive experience for your family!

*Throw a mini-party prior to the braces being put on. Include the foods that are not braces friendly. (i.e. caramel apples, corn on the cob, etc.) Make it a fun and festive celebration.

*Teach your kiddo how to make their favorite smoothies. Make a special trip to the store to pick up the ingredients.

*Offer a special treat or meal after a good appointment report (patients are only seen every 6-8 weeks).

*Include your kiddo in grocery shopping for foods that are easy and safe to eat with braces.

*Create a rewards system for good hygiene and no broken appliances. Rewards can be as simple or extravagant as works for you! Incentives can work wonders in helping especially younger children take extra special care of their teeth!
