Care of Your Braces

  • Use a soft bristle brush with toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Brush after every meal.
  • If you cannot brush right away, rinse well with water.
  • Most importantly, brush vigorously and floss until your teeth and braces are spotlessly clean at least once every day. This should take no less than five minutes.
  • Concentrate on the Danger Zone (the space between the braces and the gums).
