Maintaining dental hygiene with braces is crucial. Brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste for two minutes after each meal, using gentle circular motions and brushing at a 45-degree angle to the gum line. A powered toothbrush can be more effective. Don’t forget to brush around brackets and appliances.

Flossing is equally important; use a floss threader or orthodontic floss to navigate behind the wires. Move the floss up and down the sides of each tooth and under the gum line to remove plaque and food debris. If you struggle to clean around your braces, consider using a water flosser and ask us for product recommendations to optimize your oral care routine during orthodontic treatment.
