Dental Hygiene Tips For Brace Wearers

Keeping teeth and gums healthy while wearing braces may seem time-consuming, but the whole process can be made easier by following these simple tips.

Key takeaways:

– Get the right tools, including a soft-bristled toothbrush, an interdental brush, and a floss threader.

– Waxed dental floss can make it easier to slide the thread between wires and brackets.

– Brush all surfaces gently and keep the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle.

Practice makes perfect, so after a while the process of brushing and flossing should become second nature, even when wearing braces.
