How to brush your teeth while in braces
When you’re wearing braces, brushing your teeth throughout the day is more important than ever before. It’s best that you brush your teeth at least three times a day, preferably after each meal.
Our orthodontists suggest that each time you brush you do it first with plain water and then repeat the process with fluoride toothpaste. We recommend that you not use whitening products since you won’t be able to whiten the entire surface of the teeth while wearing braces/Invisalign attachments.
Below we’ll provide you with a quick guide on how to brush your teeth with braces!
