Braces are a common orthodontic treatment that realigns the teeth for better dental health. However, brace wearers should take extra steps to prevent gum disease and similar conditions.
– Food and plaque get easily trapped in brackets and wires, so brush at a 45-degree angle and follow up with an interdental brush.
– Rinse your mouth before brushing to help dislodge food particles.
– Floss threaders and waxed floss are must-haves for brace wearers.
You can also ask your dentist for personalised advice and specific product recommendations.
