How often should you brush your teeth during orthodontic treatment?

You are aware that you need to brush your teeth often to keep your mouth healthy, but brushing your teeth with braces can feel like such a chore. Before you think about skipping this task, remember that food stuck between your teeth will become the plaque that eventually causes tooth decay and may cause issues with your gums.  Twice a Day The standard advice that most dentists will give you is to brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once.

Orthodontic Wax In order to keep abrasive areas of your braces from rubbing against your inner lips and cheeks, apply a bit of orthodontic wax to the areas along the appliance where contact is made with the soft tissues.

We supply this to our patients at the beginning of treatment, and as needed throughout. Please let us know at your next appointment if you are in need of any. 2. Night Guard  Often, dental patients use night guards to help prevent damage to their tooth enamel from grinding or clenching. However, these specialized mouth guards ca…
