Brushing and Flossing
It’s more important than ever to brush and floss when you have braces on, so your teeth and gums stay healthy. If you don’t keep your teeth clean, you may have to go to the dentist more frequently.
Adults who have gum disease should see a periodontist during their treatment.
Brushing and flossing are the best way to make sure your smile stays healthy.
Food particles can stick to teeth and braces, and turn into plaque over time. This leads to bacteria that can cause gum disease, tooth decay, and even tooth loss.
To avoid this, take special care of your braces, teeth and gums to make sure you get the best result.
