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).
