Oral Hygiene

Keeping a Healthy Smile

It is important to maintain a good oral hygiene regimen throughout treatment because braces can create small ledges, nooks and crannies for food deposits, which can lead to cavities and gum problems. This makes brushing and flossing even more important while you are wearing braces. Brushing and flossing, preferably after every meal and snack, is the best way to prevent plaque build-up, tooth decay and gum disease.
