Brushing and Flossing

Maintaining oral hygiene with braces is crucial for healthy teeth and gums. Here’s how to brush and floss effectively:

Brush for two minutes after meals with a soft-bristled, small-headed toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Consider a powered toothbrush. Use gentle circular motions at a 45-degree angle to the gum line, focusing on areas around brackets and appliances. Don’t forget to clean the chewing surfaces and the inside of your front teeth with short back-and-forth motions.

Flossing after meals is vital. Use a floss threader or orthodontic floss to get behind each wire. Wrap the floss around your fingers, leaving a few inches taut. Slide it gently between teeth, reaching beneath the gum line. Repeat for all teeth, or try a water flosser if regular flossing is difficult.

Diligent brushing and flossing will keep your teeth healthy and your treatment on track. If you need help choosing products or have questions, feel free to ask.
