Time to remove those braces…

How do the dentist remove the braces?

It seems they use a special set of pliers to squeeze the curve on the back of the braces and that breaks the bond to the plastic adhesive. Then they may use another set of pliers to remove the plastic that is bonded to the teeth or a high-speed hand piece to smooth the plastic off the teeth and polish the enamel where the plastic was removed. Then the assistant may polish them a little but it is important to go for a full cleaning with your general dentist maybe within a month or so. You may also want to whiten your teeth a little and can always try Crest products they have out to save a little money.

What are the signs of a baby teething?

Your little one may be cranky and miserable, his/her gums might be swollen or even be hard and sometimes they may even fever. Most babies start to teeth around six or seven months but some can come in even earlier. It may help if you are prepared for when the time comes if you have pain relievers, teething toys & lots of patients. If you would like to read more about the signs you can view this web-site here.
