Sharing is caring!

Before Getting Braces By Your Favorite Orthodontist In Worcester M ASo you’ve made the decision to go ahead and get braces. Congratulations, you’ve made a wonderful decision to make your smile the brightest and straightest it can be. Worcester orthodontists of Simply Orthodontics, have several tips for you to consider in preparation for braces or orthodontic treatment.


Plan Ahead For Braces

  • Be sure to have a proper dental cleaning prior to getting your braces.
  • If necessary, have your wisdom teeth surgically removed – your dentist will be able recommend the best course of action.
  • Plan to ease your mild discomfort with over the counter pain relievers containing naproxen sodium, ibuprofen, or acetaminophen.
  • Prepare for proper oral hygiene maintenance while you have your braces. Your Worcester, MA orthodontists recommend the following for keeping your teeth clean:


    • A fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash – fluoride helps prevent tooth decay and will help remove debris that brushing alone may not reach.
    • A waterpik, an electric or battery operated toothbrush, or a proxabrush may help remove plaque and clean behind or between the teeth and brackets and other hard to reach areas.
    • An oral analgesic comes in liquid, gel and paste, and may help sooth sores inside your mouth while adjusting to your braces.
    • Get a mouthguard – participating in sports that involve physical contact with other players or a thrown ball could result in facial injury, stitches, veneers, or resetting the braces entirely if hit in the mouth.
  • Lastly, be sure to make a personal playlist to bring comfort, reassurance, or a welcome distraction to a process that may take a couple of hours.


Getting braces is nothing to be afraid of – it’s the next step in the process of perfecting your smile.

  • “I just wanted to take the time to give some praise to this office and all the staff. My daughter got braces today and everything went great. The staff and all the doctors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter was a little bit nervous about getting her braces and the staff made her feel so comfortable. A+'s in my book.”

  • I like the service we receive during my son's appointments. I love the fact that when we are early, 99% of the time we are taken early. Most appointments are very quick. This last appointment was bitter sweet. Usually his Dad brings him to his appointments but he had passed away three weeks previous. I was going to mention it while we were there but they had already known and everyone made a point to extent their condolences to my son. It was very thoughtful and I appreciated it very much. Thank you!
