How do I keep my teeth clean now that I have braces?

It’s vital to keep a daily oral hygiene routine that includes brushing, flossing and rinsing with fluoridated products. Be careful during brushing and flossing so that you don’t loosen or break your dental appliances. See our Orthodontic Oral Care page for more details!

What kinds of food should I stay away from to protect my braces?

Some people believe that orthodontic patients have a very limited diet. Really, you can eat and drink almost anything, as long you consistently care for your gums and teeth. However, there are some foods that can spell trouble for your braces -- check out the food guidelines pdf for more information.

What are my options for orthodontic treatments?

At Colalillo Orthodontics, we offer several types of orthodontic treatments. We have traditional orthodontia as well as the ceramic, tooth-colored Clarity Aesthetic Braces, and ClearCorrect aligners. Make an appointment with Dr. Alex Colalillo and get your orthodontic assessment today!

What are options do you have for athletic mouthguards?

At Colalillo Orthodontics, We supply all of our active patients with athletic mouth guards specially designed for orthodontic patients to protect their teeth and braces from injury. Dr. Colalillo also works with Under Armour to create custom performance mouth guards.

What if my jaw feels sore and my teeth are getting worn down?

You may well be suffering from bruxism, which means you could be grinding your teeth while sleeping. Bruxism is a temporomandibular jaw disorder, and requires a special nightguard to prevent you from performing the subconscious action. A nightguard will save your teeth, and give relief to your jaw. Please read more about our TMJ Therapy.
