Good oral hygiene is important to keep teeth healthy and clean. Follow these steps to take care of your teeth while under orthodontic care.
Use flouride toothpaste and brush your teeth after each meal.
Position your toothbrush on an angle under your braces and brush up and down.
Rinse your mouth out and check your teeth to ensure you removed all food particles.
Use orthodontic threaders with dental floss to remove debris under your braces, moving slowly up and down on every tooth.
Rinse with mouthwash to kill any remaining germs.
