Our office at Ricci Orthodontics in Johns Creek, Georgia, takes serious care and pride when it comes to the quality of your care and helping you have the smoothest treatment period with your new braces. That is why we are happy to provide you with advice on how to properly clean your teeth with braces so you can keep your smile healthy and your braces in tip-top shape.
In order to keep your teeth healthy with braces, it is important to remember your oral health hygiene routine of brushing for twice a day and flossing regularly. When it comes to brushing your teeth with braces, there are special types of toothbrushes that work well with braces. It is best to choose one with soft bristles and can fit the shape and size of your mouth. Choosing a toothpaste that fights against cavities is also helpful to fighting cavities from your teeth.
Flossing your teeth is an important tool when it comes to keeping your teeth and braces healthy. Food particles and debris can easily get stuck in your teeth with braces and plaque will develop in places your toothbrush can’t reach. That is why it is essential to take the time to floss your teeth. Bacteria can also form in your mouthwash so using a mouthwash that clears away bacteria and fights cavities can help keep your braces and smile clean.
