Braces will straighten your teeth and it will be easy for you to clean this means that your teeth will not be at risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral problems. It is good to wear braces so that you can straighten the teeth and get that beautiful smile that you desire.

How do I practice oral hygiene when I have braces?

Ensure that you brush your teeth immediately after eating by use of a soft bristle brush, and ensure it is on top of brackets and below the brackets. Flossing is also important by the use of interdental toothbrushes. Gargle with antimicrobial mouthwash to keep bacteria causing decay away. Make sure that you maintain regular dental visits so that the dentist will catch any condition that may show up.

Foods when you have braces
