What are the main way when it comes to maintaining good oral hygiene while you ’re wearing braces?

Your orthodontist at Partha Dental will guide you and answer all of your specific queries and give excellent, substantiated guidance, but we ’ve outlined some tips below.

  1. Brushing Is Extremely Important
    Brushing your teeth when you have braces is critical. Some people avoid brushing thinking that it might get stuck in braces but that’s a fallacy ! It’s a major step in removing debris and bacteria that could else mold and lead to serious tooth problems later on!

2 . Experts recommend brushing after every time you put food in your mouth , including snacks, so that you can keep your braces as clean as possible and help remove any stains on the teeth. But if you do n’t do that, you should at least stick to brushing a minimum of two times a day, in the morning and before bed. In lieu of brushing every time you eat or snack , you can wash instead gargle your mouth with water or mouthwash several times a day, as that can help loosen debris and keep your braces clean and healthy !

  1. Wash your mouth with lukewarm water or mouthwash to start loosening up food patches that are stuck in and around the braces.
  2. Using an interdental toothbrush which is tinier than normal , clean in between every set of classes if braces .This will help brush down particles that could be hard for your regular toothbrush to reach.
  3. Holding a soft- bristled toothbrush at a 45 ° angle makes it easier to get around the legs and cables of your braces.
  4. Brushing from the top to the bottom of every single time will help you remove debris and shrine.
  5. Do not be in a rush and nicely take out the time to clean the braces and teeth !
  6. Once you ’re each done brushing, it’s time to floss. We know it’s annoying, but it’s really important, especially when you have traditional braces. The good news is that you can stick to flossing just once a day, although you could clearly do it more frequently if you want or need to. Talk to your orthodontist about special flossing threads especially for people with braces and flossing tools like thread benders !
  7. Remember to blow and check your breath for any bad smell , if it smells clean it is clean !
  8. Be regular with your dentist check ups – clean your braces professionally and you are good to go ! For more contact us at Partha Dental clinics !
