BRUSHING AND FLOSSING
BRUSHING WITH BRACES
Maintaining oral hygiene with braces is crucial. Use a small-headed toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush for two minutes after every meal. Angle the brush at 45 degrees to the gum line, using gentle circular motions, and pay attention to all tooth surfaces, including around brackets.
FLOSSING WITH BRACES
Floss daily using a floss threader or orthodontic floss to clean between teeth and around wires. Consider a water flosser for thorough cleaning. Good care ensures smooth orthodontic treatment.
