Oral hygiene is extremely important when you have braces, so please remember to clean your smile each day with the proper oral hygiene techniques. To help you do so, our A Dental Care team has some tips for you, and those tips are to make sure you do the following things on a regular basis:

Brush: Brush your teeth throughout the day, especially after each meal and snack. Doing so will not only help you keep clean and pristine teeth, but it will also help you avoid having a food-filled smile, which is extremely embarrassing. As you brush, please use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.

Floss: Floss your smile at least once a day so you can remove the food particles and plaque that reside between your teeth. As you floss, thread one end through the space between the wire and the front surfaces of the teeth. Then, gently push the floss between the teeth and scrape each side. When finished, use a clean section of floss and move to the next crevice.

Rinse: Rinse your mouth daily with a beneficial mouthwash, like antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash. This will help you complete the cleaning job, strengthen your teeth, and improve your breath.
