Anyone who has gotten braces at any time in their lives would know that braces are painful and require a lot of patience. Imagine that you have your favorite meal, but most of it gets stuck inside your braces, and you end up spending more time brushing your teeth with a weird slim toothbrush that no one in your house uses. Brushing teeth properly with braces is a real nightmare, especially when you have different metals, wires, and multi-colored rubber bands in your mouth. And brushing alone isn’t enough if you want white teeth. No one wants to go through the pain and cost of braces to finally get them off and have yellow teeth. Keeping your teeth healthy and white during your experience with braces is doable, but brushing and flossing alone won’t cut it.
WHITER TEETH AND BRACES: AN ESSENTIAL COMBINATION
If you're struggling with yellow teeth and are tired of searching for teeth whitening products, then it's time you pay a visit to the orthodontist for a checkup. Your orthodontist will guide you on the proper way for brushing teeth when you have braces on and might also advise you to rinse your mouth with water after every meal so that your mouth remains free from any food particles and bacteria. But visiting the orthodontist is only part of the equation. If you aren’t keeping up with your whitening schedule when you finally get your braces off you won’t want to show off your new, straight teeth. In fact, you might hide the time-consuming, painful and expensive results of your orthodontics if you don’t have white teeth. Nothing could be quite as disappointing as seeing your straight smile for the first time and realizing that your teeth are yellow.
WAYS TO GET WHITER TEETH WITH BRACES ON
1. AT-HOME TEETH WHITENING KIT
Are you tired of experimenting with different teeth whitening products and still unhappy with the results? Save yourself from all the hassle! Get your hands on our Brytn Teeth Whitening Kit that will help you smile more confidently and remove all stains from your teeth. It includes premium blue and red light, three whitening pens, a shade scale, and a battery charger, all of which contribute to an easy and painless teeth whitening treatment at home.
2. WHITENING TOOTHPASTE
One of the other teeth whitening products that are useful for oral hygiene and whiter teeth is whitening toothpaste. It helps remove stains from the teeth, helps prevent new stains from forming, and also freshens up the breath. Using whitening toothpaste regularly or at least twice a day will help you get rid of yellow teeth quickly.
3. GOOD QUALITY TOOTHBRUSH
Before investing in at-home teeth whitening, make sure that you purchase a good-quality toothbrush. Use a brush with soft bristles and opt for an electric brush that is rotatable and goes deep into the mouth to push out the food particles and remove stubborn stains.
4. ORTHODONTIC FLOSSERS
Orthodontic flossers are also famous amongst teeth whitening products, and some flossers are designed especially for people who have braces. The Orthodontic flossers go up and down the teeth and also cover the sides to ensure that no sides of the teeth are left uncleaned. Make sure that you push the floss towards the back of your teeth, the area which is the most difficult to brush.
5. WATER FLOSSING
Water flossing is also a recommended option for yellow teeth with braces. Using a water flosser helps you clean your teeth without braces getting into the way. Water flossing can be easily done at home and does not require any extra tools or efforts.
5 Reasons Your Teeth Turn Yellow With Braces
Difficulty Reaching All Of The Tooth
Braces take the normal task of tooth brushing and turn it into a full contact sport- you need different toothbrushes, flossers, and more time to make sure your teeth are getting the full cleaning they need.
Bacteria Get Stuck In Braces
Bacteria in your mouth cause the build-up of plaque and tartar in your mouth, and if you don't have braces, getting rid of the plaque and tartar is as simple as brushing your teeth regularly. However, if you have braces there are dozens of nooks and crannies for bacteria to hide, making it difficult to completely remove them and even more difficult to prevent plaque and tartar.
Bracket Ligature Bands Cause Discoloration
The plastic bands that go around the brackets of your braces are called bracket ligature bands. These bands are replaced every 4-6 weeks while you get braces, but as time goes on with each set they slowly lose their color and reflect the dingy color onto your teeth. In this case, the bands themselves don’t make your teeth actually yellow, just give the appearance of yellow. Getting these bands changed every 4 weeks can prevent the appearance of yellow on your teeth.
Braces Can Hurt So You Don’t Want To Brush
If you’ve ever had any orthodontic work, you know that almost all of the procedures can be uncomfortable, and some are downright painful. Wearing braces is no exception, sometimes they feel okay but after an adjustment or when you first get them, you probably won’t be excited to be brushing any time soon. Regardless of your previous brushing habits, these painful procedures might make you feel less than excited to brush your teeth, and even less likely to brush your teeth after every meal as recommended by your orthodontist. Less brushing means more plaque which means more discoloration.
You Aren’t Using A Teeth Whitening Kit
If you aren’t using a professional-grade tooth whitening kit like the Brytn Teeth Whitening Kit during your time with braces, you might be sorely disappointed with your new smile when the braces come off. Not only will a teeth whitening kit help with your teeth after you get your braces off, but the kit will also help during your time with braces. Using the Whitening Pens and the Premium Blue & Red Light Teeth Whitening Device from Brytn Smile helps kill stubborn or hard-to-reach bacteria, helping to reduce plaque build up in your braces.
Tackling Your Yellow Teeth Problem From Braces
Why go through the trouble and cost of straightening your teeth if you don’t have a white smile to go with it? Straight, white teeth are the goal, so only addressing half of the issue by getting braces and not whitening your teeth is only helping you achieve half of your goal.
