Taking care of your teeth while wearing braces is more important than ever. Good oral hygiene is an important part of your orthodontic treatment.
Flossing & Brushing
Carefully brushing with toothpastes and flossing is the best was to prevent plaque build-up, tooth decay and gum disease.
We recommend the following 3 easy steps:
Floss between all your teeth at least once daily (usually at night before going to bed).
2. Brush Your Teeth
Brush your teeth following meals and before going to bed at night.
3. Brush Between Your Braces
Use a “mini” (interdental) brush to get between your braces.
It’s important to regularly check your braces for bent or loose wires and brackets. If you have a loose/broken wire or bracket, please call our office immediately to arrange a repair appointment.
