Caring for Your Braces: Tips and Advice

Here are some tips for caring for your braces:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to gently brush all surfaces of your teeth, including around your brackets and wires.
  • Floss daily: Use a floss threader or a small interdental brush to clean between your teeth and around your brackets.
  • Rinse with mouthwash: Rinse your mouth with an antimicrobial mouthwash to kill bacteria and freshen your breath.
  • Avoid hard, sticky, or sugary foods: These types of foods can damage or get caught in your braces, so it is important to avoid them. Your orthodontist will provide you with a list of foods to avoid.
  • Wear a mouthguard when playing sports: Wearing a mouthguard can help protect your braces and teeth from injury during sports and other physical activities.
  • Follow your orthodontist's instructions: Your orthodontist will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your braces. It is important to follow these instructions to ensure that your treatment is successful and that your teeth and gums stay healthy.
