The overall consensus of the internet is no, spicy foods are not a problem, and yes, you can eat them.
After many months of waiting, some orthodontic patients are incredibly disappointed to see that their teeth are a complete mess after the braces come off. Improper oral hygiene and a lack of dentist check-ups can lead to yellow teeth after braces, to white spot lesion, and even cavities on the tooth surfaces. Receiving orthodontic treatment puts you at risk of oral disease, as the teeth are harder to clean, and certain tooth surfaces remain hidden as there are brackets on top of them, leading to yellowness of the teeth after the braces come off. Damage can also be incurred from the appliance itself.
The topics people query on the internet never cease to amuse me. One that recently caught my attention is whether or not braces can rust, and what to do if they do. I felt the need to write about this, as there are so many misconceptions and misunderstandings in these threads that I cannot just let them slide without adding a little to the discussions.
When Is Headgear Used? It is almost very orthodontic patient’s nightmare that their bite alignment will involve having to wear headgear. Many people are confused as to why some people wear them at all, and what they are supposed to do. Headgear is very rarely used at all, but when it is, it is only if there is a correction of a very severe problem. it is only used in the correction of an overbite, which is a very rare condition.
