Brush everywhere, especially along the gum line (above and below the braces). To floss, simply thread the floss behind the wire and floss between every tooth.
Food and plaque can easily get trapped in the brackets and wires of your braces. If not removed, they can lead to decay and staining of your teeth. It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene routine while in orthodontic treatment. We recommend carrying a braces care kit with you, keeping a travel-sized toothbrush, toothpaste, and mouthwash for on-the-go cleaning. Remember to visit your dentist regularly, even while in orthodontic treatment. Your long-term results are dependent on having healthy teeth during treatment.
Brush at least twice a day or after every meal, if possible, and floss at least once a day. It can be helpful to buy a floss threader or water flosser to help you get in between your wires and around your brackets effectively.
