so in effect when the braces go on

01:21

you're creating a design for the smile

01:23

the beginning better they go on now the

01:27

easier quicker the rest of the treatment

01:29

04:10

this spring nice little room so those

04:13

tapes and research back a little bit so

04:15

when you get home I'd recommend that you

04:18

take some panadol normally some people

04:20

find a bit of tenderness or pain some

04:22

people don't but just to be sure just

04:23

take some panadol and then repeat in

04:25

about four hours time

04:26

yeah the first two to three days

04:28

everyone gets a little bit of discomfort

04:30

it's like having a new pair of shoes and

04:32

you've gotta wear them in before they

04:34

become a bit more comfortable with food

04:36

you're not really going to want to chew

04:38

anything hard sticky or chewy especially

04:40

for the first couple of days so

04:42

something you can squash with your

04:43

tongue and swallow so pasta spaghetti

04:45

risotto noodle soup yogurt really good

04:48

foods to have what do you think of those

04:50

foods I love you okay awesome

04:51

I usually pass no judgment fantastic

04:54

with food in general if you can cut it

04:56

with a knife and a fork don't eat it so

04:58

don't eat nuts

04:59

I support crackle Minty's webkinz tapas

05:02

all these common-sense that applies for

05:04

the life of the braces the drinks if

05:06

it's not milk or water don't drink it -

05:08

drink water anyway or do you eat much

05:10

juice water milk orange juice as well so

05:14

it won't be yeah it's a good question

05:15

orange juice is fine just don't do too

05:17

much of it and probably avoid soft

05:19

drinks once in a while is okay but just

05:21

not too much

05:22

so anything acidic yes it's definitely

05:25

anything sugary and acidic don't have it

05:27

at all now we'll go through the brushing

05:30

you're brushing in the morning before

05:32

bed and after every meal with the

05:34

brushing make sure that your brush your

05:36

teeth comes back as you normally would

05:37

angle the toothbrush at 45 degrees so

05:40

you can feel the gums being rubbed if

05:42

you can't feel the guns being rubs it's

05:44

a waste of time make sure it's getting

05:46

in between you can see it's getting in

05:50

between

05:51

once you've done the gums come around

05:54

and do the tops of the teeth again so

05:57

I'll show you again

05:59

doing the front it gums getting in

06:05

between make sure you can feel the gums

06:07

being around the tops of the teeth yeah

06:14

don't forget to brush the insides of

06:18

your teeth as you normally would

06:19

electric or manual toothbrush is fine

06:21

whatever you prefer go the pharmacy you

06:25

can get whatever you like mouth rings

06:26

floss there's no rules on the brushing

06:28

as long as you're doing enough of it

06:30

the closer look at your teeth and just

06:31

make sure there's nothing stuck on them

06:32

clean teeth moves better they're

06:34

healthier and just all around a lot

06:36

better awesome

06:37

also that does raise a question so that

06:41

I've been told about cheese mousse yes

06:44

here you can use tooth mousse I won't

06:46

harm at all so after your brushing pops

06:47

on one image go to bed the last thing is

06:51

the wax you might have some sharp bits

06:54

from the braces and catch your wire or

06:56

sometimes loose braces as well the wax

06:58

fixes most of these problems take the

07:01

wax and pinch a little bit off like a

07:03

bit of blue tank roll it thin between

07:05

your fingers and stick it on wherever

07:07

you need to whether it's the front the

07:09

back or the side the wax makes things

07:11

smooth get rid of sharp bits just all

07:14

around adds to comfort use as much or as

07:17

little as you need

07:18

it'll be your best friend for the first

07:20

couple of weeks you can also pop bonjela

07:22

if you have any elses in the short-term

07:24

awesome and if like you said loose

07:27

braces or something should I be ringing

07:29

up give us a call and we're more than

07:31

happy to take a look at any time and

07:33

that's entirely up to you okay most

07:35

things can usually wait until your next

07:36

appointment and I'll give us a call if

07:38

you're not sure awesome

07:40

so just the Reese MRIs just the food if

07:43

you can't cut it with a knife and a fork

07:44

don't eat it the wax fixes most problems

07:47

and you're brushing in the morning

07:50

before bed and after every meal we'll be

07:53

seeing you every six weeks every eight

07:54

weeks and you'll find that even in

07:56

fairly quickly

07:57

also I don't weigh any other questions

07:59
