Brushing and Flossing

It is more important than ever to brush and floss regularly when you have braces, so that teeth and gums stay healthy.  Inadequate cleaning can lead to decay, gum disease and permanant white spots.  The following videos explain the proper care of teeth and braces during orthodontic treatment.

Cleaning Your Removable Appliance

Brush your removable appliance every day as a part of your regular brushing and flossing schedule. Because food particles and plaque can accumulate on your appliance just as they do on your teeth, occasionally soak the appliance in Retainer Brite.  Your appliance will taste and smell better, and you will prevent plaque and bacterial accumulation.

Do You Play Contact Sports?

If so, you should always wear a protective mouthguard.  There are mouthguards specially designed for orthodontic braces.  Ask us and we will be happy to provide you with one.
