While it may seem hard to get rid of gum disease and tooth decay, it is crucial to maintaining the health of your teeth. This video explains how teens are required to brush their teeth regularly and how they can use braces.
The first thing to do is ensure that you keep your dental hygiene routine. As usual, brush your teeth twice a day. Make sure you brush your teeth from the top, forward, and bottom of the braces. The tooth brush should be angled to completely cover the sides of your braces and your teeth. It might take longer to do, but it’s a good way of preventing white spots from building up on your teeth and marring your smile after braces are removed.
Next is flossing. It can be difficult to floss due to the wiring which connects braces. The floss threader is useful tool. Thread floss through your braces and your teeth using the floss threader. It’s not the most efficient method, but it will prevent dental caries and gingivitis between your teeth which could hinder the job braces are making.
To remove food from the braces, try using the protrabrush. Don’t force it, though! You don’t want to break out of a bracket. For more information take a look at the video at the link below.
