Proper oral care isn’t just about making your teeth look pretty. It’s the key to avoiding common dental problems like gingivitis, tartar, and demineralization. Because thorough oral hygiene is more difficult with braces, braces wearers are more prone to these issues than non-braces wearers. These dental problems are unpleasant enough on their own, but if left untreated they can also turn into more serious oral health issues. Plus, they can prolong your time in braces. In severe cases of gum disease or other oral health problems, the orthodontist may even have to remove your braces, wait for your gums and mouth to heal, and then reapply them.
We know that caring for your teeth can be a challenge when you have braces. Unfortunately, this means that focusing on oral hygiene and understanding the dental issues you should watch out for is more important than ever before. It’s also more important to choose products that’ll help you do the best job of caring for your teeth – things like Oral-B power toothbrush heads made specially for braces, Oral-B threader floss that can maneuver around your wires, and Crest toothpastes that kill germs in spaces between your brackets. They can’t do all the work for you, but they can certainly help.

Yes, we do recommend that you do not chew gum; this could loosen your braces. Food that is hard and crunchy for example peanuts, ice, popcorn and hard chips, could cause your braces to break off Loosen and broken braces generally extend the length of treatment.
