It’s very important to brush and floss regularly while wearing braces or having an appliance in your mouth. If your gums are not healthy, then they will become swollen and bleed easily when brushing.

Brush after every meal and before bedtime and floss every day. If you aren’t able to brush after a snack, rinse your mouth with water. We will help you with instructions on how to brush and floss.

Our office also recommends using a dental fluoride mouth rinse daily. This is available over the counter.
