Do you know what you can and can't eat with braces?
Many patients in my clinic are worried about orthodontics and depriving them of certain types of food. Having braces doesn't mean that you will be living on pureed, bland foods during your treatment. Knowing what foods you can and can't eat with your braces will help you achieve the optimum results after your orthodontic treatment has been completed. Preventing damage to the archwires, bands, and brackets as well as keeping your teeth free from tooth decay during your treatment should be your number one concern.
Pregnancy and oral health
Since the beginning of my work as an orthodontist in Dubai and later in Al Ain, many pregnant women who visited my clinic had a mutual fear of dental and orthodontic treatments during pregnancy, but is this fear justified? It is obvious that women might face problems at the level of teeth and gums during pregnancy, but many of them have a false belief that dental treatment may have negative effects on the embryo. And to be frank, oral health care during pregnancy is not a healthy choice, but a necessity.
