When Should My Child See an Orthodontist?

When should my child see an orthodontist? Let’s take a closer look. By seeing an orthodontist early, you can ensure your child gets the best start. 

Notably, there are tremendous advantages in getting an early start. By spotting any red flags in the early stages, you can help ensure a lifetime of healthy, beautiful smiles.

When Should My Child See an Orthodontist?

The Amerian Association of Orthodontists recommends children see an orthodontist no later than age seven. Most kids have some permanent teeth at this age, and the orthodontist can spot potential malocclusions. (a bad bite caused by misalignments)

However, if you spot something of concern and your child is younger than age seven, it’s a good idea to have an orthodontist check it out. Furthermore, if your child hasn’t seen an orthodontist by age eight, it’s not too late to get started. Please, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Glaser at your earliest convenience.

Remember, it’s never too late to get started with an orthodontist, at any age.

Pediatric Dentist Vs. Orthodontist

For general dentistry, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that a child’s first visit be when the first tooth comes in, no later than age one to two. Whereas a dentist helps maintain oral health, an orthodontist is a skilled smile specialist with years of additional education and training. 

Thus, your orthodontist ensures smiles are beautiful, functional, and healthy. If there are misalignments, they can correct them whether there are minor or extensive irregularities. Both dentists and orthodontists are your allies in better oral health but have different specialties.

Often, a dentist will recommend an orthodontist, but you don’t need the recommendation to get started.

Your First Visit is a Fun, Educational Experience

We all know going to a dentist or orthodontist can be an intimidating experience, especially for youngsters. However, we always strive to make your visits fun, educational, and comfortable. By making the visit a positive and fun experience, we can help encourage a lifetime of better oral health habits.

Therefore, your first visit is a time to learn more without discomfort. After looking at your child’s smile, the orthodontist will explain if any potential problems are present. Often, kids won’t need further treatment, but if there is an issue, then we’ve caught it early! 

Intercept Problems to Avoid Bigger Issues

Next, if we spot something of concern, we’ll discuss all of the options to correct and prevent further problems. Then, we’ll go over all the details like treatment cost and how long it will likely take.

With interceptive treatment, kids can avoid bigger problems later. Therefore, we can prevent a more expensive treatment down the road. Even better, orthodontic treatment improves health, so kids are happier and more confident from the start.

Choosing an Orthodontist

When it comes to you or your child’s smile, you deserve award-winning treatment. 

If you live in the Westchester County area, you can access a world-class orthodontic leader: Dr. Barry J. Glaser. Using his advanced experience, he can design more convenient and comfortable treatment plans for kids. Today, we also have ways to make treatment more fun, as you can see in the Instagram post below.

By choosing an experienced orthodontist, you can make sure that treatment is efficient, effective, comfortable, and affordable. At Glaser Orthodontics, our award-winning team makes you and your child our top priorities. So, can be confident you’ve chosen the best care for your family.

How to Clean My Invisalign Clear Aligners

Are you wondering “how to clean my Invisalign clear aligners?” Keeping your aligners clean goes a long way to making sure your treatment remains comfortable and discreet.

Since the aligners are clear and removable, treatment is convenient. While you work on your smile, most people won’t know. Plus, you can eat your favorite foods and brush your teeth as usual. 

Since the aligners come out, they are easy to clean. However, the thin SmartTrack material is somewhat delicate. So, it’s important to gently clean the aligners without abrasive cleaners or toothpaste.

Avoid Hot Liquids

SmartTrack material allows a precise, comfortable fit shaped to your unique smile. However, the aligners are for temporary use as you switch to the next set in the series. So, they aren’t meant to last long-term. As such, they can be delicate when it comes to hot liquids. 

Therefore, always take out aligners when you eat or drink something other than plain, cool water. When cleaning aligners, avoid using hot water. Otherwise, the aligners may warp.

Avoid Staining Aligners

Recently, we looked at foods to avoid with Invisalign and braces. Although aligners come out, it’s still a good idea to limit or avoid sugary foods and drinks. Plus, some foods may stain your aligners or clear braces. Thus, it’s a good idea to be mindful of these items for discreet treatment. Otherwise, you may not be able to clean off discoloration.

Keep Aligners in Their Case

Whenever you eat, drink, or clean your teeth, you should take out the aligners. (except for plain water)

Sometimes, people sit their aligners on a napkin. However, this is easily lost and ends up in the trash can.

Therefore, it’s best to get in the habit of carrying your Invisalign case. Always place the aligners in the case, rinsing them off if possible. Then, place the case in the same place every time so you’ll never forget to bring it with you.

Importantly, the case will help prevent bacterial growth on your aligners. Thus, it can also help you avoid bad breath during treatment.

Reserve a Soft Toothbrush for Cleaning Aligners

Once a night, it’s time to brush your aligners with a soft toothbrush gently. We recommend buying a toothbrush with soft bristles that won’t scuff up the plastic. Then, keep this brush aside for cleaning your aligners.

Gently brush all the surfaces of your aligners under cool tap water.

Products to Clean Invisalign

Many people use Invisalign’s cleaning system, including cleaning crystals and a sterilizing tray. These work great if you want to try them.

Clear Liquid Soap

Fortunately, clear liquid soap will work adequately. Note, soaps with added coloration could discolor the aligners.

Retainer Cleaning Products 

As another alternative to Invisalign cleaning products, you may use cleaning products made for delicate retainers. 

Remember, these not the same as products used to clean dentures. Both denture cleaners and toothpaste are too abrasive on the thin aligners.

Following Invisalign or braces, you’ll wear a retainer to make sure your smile stays perfect. Thus, you’ll already have the retainer cleaning products on hand.

Before treatment, we’ll discuss how to “clean my Invisalign,” including the cleaning products we recommend.

Steps to Clean My Invisalign

Here are the easy steps to clean aligners:

  1. Rinse your aligners under the tap. (never use hot water)
  2. Use your designated soft brush and clear soap to brush the aligners on all surfaces.
  3. Rinse the aligners again until clean.
  4. Put your aligners back in for the night.

While you sleep, your aligners will continue to work their magic, slowly moving your teeth to their ideal positions. After breakfast, rinse them before putting them in for the day. 

Daytime Cleaning on the Move

To keep your aligners clean on the go, we recommend carrying a soft travel toothbrush with you. Then, whenever your aligners need it, you can gently brush them in cool water. While on the move, clean or rinse the aligners when you get the opportunity.

Remember to place the aligners in your case when you eat or drink something other than water. If, for any reason, they come into contact with food, then clean them as soon as possible. 

That’s it! As you can see, caring for the aligners is not difficult and will help you enjoy a better experience during treatment. Following Invisalign, you can start showing off the beautiful smile you deserve!

Foods to Avoid with Invisalign & Braces

This time, we’re looking at foods to avoid with Invisalign & braces. In previous posts, we looked at foods to eat with braces and braces-friendly Halloween candy. 

Notably, the main difference between Invisalign & braces is that you can take out the aligners. Thus, you don’t have to be as careful about foods to avoid. On the other hand, some foods can damage braces’ wires and brackets.

However, some foods are best limited or avoided with Invisalign and braces. By following the general rules, you can help avoid tooth decay and discolored aligners or braces. 

Generally, people love clear braces and Invisalign because you can’t see them. By avoiding foods that stain, you can keep it that way.

Foods that Could Stain Invisalign & Braces

Most of the time, you wouldn’t want to show off a yellow smile. However, if you eat lots of foods that stain, your clear aligners or braces could appear yellowish and discolored. Or, they might look purple, brownish, or reddish, depending on the food. Fortunately, you can avoid this by limiting or avoiding foods such as the ones below.

Staining foods (not a complete list):

  • Tea
  • Beets
  • Curry
  • Coffee
  • Berries
  • Mustard
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Wine
  • Soy sauce
  • Grape juice
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Some food colorings

If a food would likely stain your clothes, then it is likely to stain your clear aligners. Of course, it’s always best to take out aligners when you eat. However, you can’t do that with braces, so it’s a little more important to be mindful if you have clear braces.

Avoid Hot Drinks with Invisalign

Invisalign’s thin SmartTrack material is a perfect custom fit for your teeth. However, it is susceptible to warping if you drink hot liquids with the aligners in place. So, be sure to take them out before enjoying hot drinks.

Similarly, it’s not a good idea to clean your aligners using hot water. With braces, hot liquids that stain could be a problem, such as coffee.

Limit or Avoid Sugary Sodas and Beverages

As a rule, it’s a good idea to limit surgery foods and drinks. Of course, this is true even when you aren’t wearing Invisalign or braces. However, during treatment, it becomes more important. Why? With braces, it’s trickier to clean your teeth thoroughly.

With Invisalign, you can clean your teeth normally after taking out the aligners. However, sugary foods and drinks coat your teeth with a film that causes tooth decay. Therefore, the American Association of Orthodontists suggests limiting or avoiding sugar with Invisalign. 

Since liquids can get under the aligners, it’s best to drink only plain water. Notably, even some bottled waters can pose a problem because they are acidic.

Avoid drinks like these:

  • Sodas
  • Acidic liquids
  • Flavored water
  • Fruit drinks
  • Sports drinks
  • Energy drinks

If you drink something other than water, rinse and brush your teeth soon afterward, wherever possible.

Avoid or Limit Sugary Foods 

In our prior post about foods to enjoy with braces, we discussed avoiding foods that are:

  • Hard
  • Sticky
  • Chewy 
  • Crunchy
  • Staining

Do you have to watch out for these foods with Invisalign? Not as much, but it’s still a good idea to limit sugary foods and hard, crunchy foods, even with Invisalign. On the other hand, an occasional treat is great! We all have a sweet tooth, so just clean and rinse well after enjoying softer treats. We discuss the best candies and soft treats in our previous post about Halloween candy.

Remember, since these foods coat the teeth with a sugary film, they promote tooth decay. Also, hard, crunchy bits can be difficult to clean between teeth. Then, when you put your aligners back in, these particles can be trapped and lead to tooth decay.

Foods to Avoid with Invisalign & Braces

Below, we list some examples of foods best limited or avoided with Invisalign & braces: 

  • Lollypops and suckers
  • Sticky, chewy candies
  • Taffy, Caramel, Starbursts, or similar
  • Hard candies and jawbreakers
  • Gummies and jellybeans
  • Sour candies 
  • Popcorn, chips, hard pretzels
  • Nuts and crunchy trail mix
  • Chewing gum or bubble gum

If you wear braces, it’s important to watch out for these foods. By doing so, you can avoid an emergency visit to fix a broken or loose wire or bracket. With Invisalign, it’s still a good idea to limit or avoid them to keep your teeth strong and healthy.

We hope this list of foods to avoid with Invisalign & braces has been helpful. Although it might seem like a lot, remember it helps your treatment go faster and more comfortably. Then, you can reward yourself with any favorites you avoided when treatment is complete. 

Of course, the best reward is a beautiful smile to show off for life!

Foods to Eat with Braces

In this post, we’ll discuss foods to eat with braces. Unlike Invisalign, braces always remain attached to the teeth until your smile is perfected. Thus, you have to be mindful of what foods you consume. 

Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to figure out using some simple rules. And remember, when treatment is over, you can indulge again. Consider it a reward for a job well-done as you show off a fantastic smile for life.

Avoid These Foods When Wearing Braces

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) suggests staying away from foods that fall into these categories:

  • Hard
  • Sticky
  • Chewy
  • Crunchy

Avoiding these categories of food is essential with bracers. And, even if you wear Invisalign, it’s a good idea to limit foods like this. If you do eat foods like these, it’s always necessary to carefully rinse, brush, and floss after snacks or meals.

Some foods, like apples or carrots, can be enjoyed if cut up into small pieces. However, chomping into a whole apple isn’t a great idea. Wires and brackets can be pulled loose or contorted, requiring an emergency appointment.

Limit Sugary Beverages

 As you might expect, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends avoiding sugary drinks with braces or Invisalign. Even diet soda can promote cavities, and sugary sodas are not a great idea for anybody. Also, limit the number of sports or energy drinks and sugary, acidic fruit juice. 

With aligners, you have to watch out for hot liquids like coffee. Otherwise, the plastic could warp or stain. However, you can enjoy these beverages when the aligners are out. Staining is also a potential problem with braces, as we’ll look at next.

Avoid Foods That Stain

Some foods can stain the brackets of braces, particularly the clear ceramic variety. Thus, it’s a good idea to avoid them if possible. Otherwise, clean and rinse well after partaking.

Examples of Foods that Stain:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red Wine
  • Beets
  • Curry
  • Currants
  • Mustard
  • Tomatoes
  • Grape Juice
  • Berries
  • Soy sauce
  • Grape juice
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Some food coloring

Some Foods To Avoid Temporarily

Right after getting braces, your mouth will be more sensitive. Thus, there is a period of adjustment when it may be better to avoid some foods for a time. After this period, you can work them back into your diet.

Avoid these foods until you adjust to braces: 

  • Any pieces of bread that aren’t soft or have thick crusts
  • Citrus and spicy foods can be irritating
  • Tough or thick cuts of meat
  • Ice cream if your teeth are sensitive to cold

On the last item, ice cream can help some people adjust, but others are sensitive to the cold temporarily.

Foods That Are Out with Braces

In addition to what we’ve looked at so far, these foods are best to avoid during treatment. Then, when your braces come off, you can enjoy them again.

  • Nuts
  • Ice
  • Chips
  • Popcorn
  • Hard tacos
  • Chewing gum
  • Hard crackers
  • Corn on the cob
  • Apples, carrots, hard veggies (unless sliced into small pieces)
  • Tough bread like bagels, pretzels, or pizza crust

As noted, these fall into the hard, sticky, chewy, crunchy categories.

These Foods Are In with Braces

Now for some delicious options to enjoy. As you can see, they’re softer and won’t stick to braces and wires.

  • Soups
  • Seafood
  • Soft fruit
  • Pancakes
  • Muffins
  • Puddings
  • Soft bread
  • Soft cheese
  • Cooked rice
  • Milkshakes
  • Cooked pasta
  • Oats and grains
  • Soft wraps and tortillas
  • Cooked and soft veggies
  • Soft desserts and cakes

With so many options, there are plenty of delicious recipes to enjoy. Thus, you can enjoy a nutritious, varied diet and treat yourself on occasion. To see which kinds of sweets are safer with braces, see our recent blog here.

By sticking to foods like these, your treatment will be smoother, and the braces will come off faster. Then you can once again reward yourself as you show off your new perfect smile.

Braces-Friendly Halloween Candy

In this post, we’ll discuss braces-friendly Halloween candy. Halloween is a fun time for costumes and treats, and hopefully, fewer tricks. For those who are wearing braces, you can avoid a scare by avoiding certain scary treats. 

This year, Halloween is a bit different amid the pandemic. However, following CDC guidelines, you can still have a great time. Now more than ever, we need stress relief and a lighthearted escape. So long as you are safe, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy Halloween 2020 with your loved ones –even if it’s a quiet night watching Halloween movies at home.

Below, we offer some suggestions for treats to enjoy this year if you are wearing braces. By sticking to the soft, safer foods, you can avoid breaking a wire or bracket. Thus, you won’t need an emergency visit and keep treatment comfortable and on schedule.

See more about what foods to eat with braces anytime in our blog.

These Treats Are a Fright!

Halloween candy is tempting, but before you eat, remember to avoid any treats that are:

  • Hard
  • Crunchy
  • Sticky
  • Chewy
  • Or will stain your braces

So, if you receive candy or another item that falls into one of these categories, it’s probably best to avoid it. All year, it’s best to limit sugary sweets and be sure to rinse, brush, and floss after eating snacks or meals.

Soft, Safer Treats to Enjoy

Below are a few treats that are softer and less likely to damage braces. 

  • Kit-Kats
  • Pixie Stix 
  • Malt Balls 
  • Soft cake 
  • Apple cider
  • 3 Muskateers
  • Jell-O and pudding
  • Ice cream and yogurt
  • Doughnuts and soft cookies
  • Peeled thinly-chopped apples
  • Soft cheese puffs (never popcorn)
  • Milkshakes and smoothies, floats
  • Peanut butter cups and Reese’s Pieces
  • Soft cookies and cupcakes without nuts
  • Soft peppermint patties and Junior Mints
  • Smooth pure chocolate that melts in the mouth (Kisses, Hershey bars without nuts)

Many of these candies are our favorites, with or without braces. So, you’re sure to find something to enjoy for Halloween.

Treats That Can Be a Nightmare

Many popular Halloween candies are a problem for those with braces. They fall into the categories we looked at before: Hard, Crunchy, Sticky, and Chewy. Thus, they can get stuck to wires and brackets and may result in an unplanned emergency visit to your orthodontist.

  • Candy corns
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Chewing gum
  • Caramel and taffy
  • Skittles and Starbursts
  • Lollipops and hard candies
  • Popcorn, chips, hard pretzels
  • Licorice, gummies, and jelly beans
  • Jawbreakers (always a bad idea)
  • Nuts (except soft peanut butter)
  • Apples and carrots (unless finely chopped and peeled)

If any of these treats are a favorite, don’t worry. By avoiding them for now, your braces will come off faster and more comfortably. Then, you’ll be able to enjoy them again. Even better, you’ll have a perfect smile!

Remote Dental Monitoring Means Fewer Office Visits! 👍 Gone are the days of having to have an orthodontist appointment every 4-8 weeks for braces adjustments! Invisalign treatment combined with remote orthodontic monitoring allows Dr. Glaser to track the progress of his cases remotely with a weekly check-in using an app. All the patient has to do is upload a couple of pictures to a mobile app once a week, and just as long as the patient’s teeth are tracking correctly, they can just switch their aligners as directed by Dr. Glaser without having to visit the office. During times like these, we love these innovative and necessary solutions! 😊 – – – #glaserorthodontics #cuttingedge #dentalmonitoring #virtualorthodontics #modernmedicine #invisalign #cortlandtmanor #peekskillny #westchestercountyny #shruboakny #moheganlake #remotedentalmonitoring #remoteortho
