Will Wearing Braces Leave Marks on Your Teeth?

Posted on 6/22/2020 by Sawrie Orthodontics
While wearing braces often leaves marks on the teeth once the braces are taken off, there are also several other reasons why marks may appear on your teeth. It is therefore important to understand the difference between white marks caused by wearing braces and those that are caused by other factors. Some of the common causes of white spots on teeth include poor nutrition, genetic factors and excess intake of fluoride, which causes a condition known as fluorosis. In many cases, there is little one can do to prevent white spots brought about by these factors. However, maintaining good oral hygiene and practicing healthy dietary habits can minimize the likelihood of these white spots appearing. Orthodontist white spots, on the other hand, are usually caused by a buildup of plaque on the teeth. This often leads to decalcification of the teeth and the appearance of white spot lesions, which look like tiny white cavities. Getting Rid of Orthodontic White Spots Orthodontic white spots can significantly affect your smile and dent your confidence and self-esteem. It is therefore important to take the necessary steps to get rid of them as soon as they appear. One of the ways in which you can minimize the appearance of these white lesions is by removing plaque from your teeth to prevent the accumulation of bacteria, which produce corrosive acid that can damage your teeth. You should also maintain a good oral regimen to eliminate the possibility of white spots appearing on your teeth.
