Getting dental bonds is like giving your teeth a new life. They are very easy to get used to and unlike dentures that take a while for your mouth to adjust, adjusting with the dental bond is instant. While this is amazing, people often forget that a bond is an alien object in your mouth and unless you care for it properly you will risk it coming out. Although a dental bond is strong, you might have to make certain changes to your eating habits so your mouth adjusts to the bond. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Maintaining The Bond
A dental bond sticks to your tooth well, but when you eat something sticky, it could come out along with sticky substance. One of the most common examples is chewing gum. If you are habituated to chewing gum and you recently got dental bonding done, you may want to stop the habit if you want the bond to last long. While chewing gum may not take out the bond instantly, regularly chewing it will loosen the bond and it will eventually fall out.
You may also want to avoid really hard foods like walnuts or raw vegetables like carrots using the bonded tooth. You can always cut the vegetables into smaller pieces and use your other teeth to chew it. You may also want to avoid taking big bites since this risks pulling out the bond. Eating something that may require you to bite hard or pull while eating could result in the bond loosening and coming out.
You should also ensure that you do not brush your teeth too aggressively as this may compromise the bond. While it is important to clean your teeth well, you should ask our experts what kind of toothbrush is best suited when it comes to cleaning your bond. It's best to avoid a hard toothbrush so that your bond is not damaged. If you are looking to get a dental bond then speak to our experts today to clear all your doubts.
