Braces are an excellent treatment for individuals with crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, malocclusions, and more. Orthodontics are experts at helping people get straighter teeth, a better smile, and improved dental health. This video explains the top tips for anyone seeking braces treatment.
The first tip is to invest in good mouthwash. Get mouthwash with flouride in it to help mineralize the teeth.
Even if you brush and floss twice a day, braces make it difficult to get every nook and cranny. Flouride, as a liquid, will work it’s way into hard-to-reach spots and eliminate plaque build up while also building up your teeth.
The next tip is to invest in an automatic toothbrush. A manual toothbrush is fine, but automatic toothbrushes are so much better at cleaning off plaque. As mentioned above, it’s difficult to get everything squeaky clean with braces because the brackets and wires block the bristles. Automatic toothbrushes will motor around quickly and get into these nooks much with a tiny brushing motion that’s difficult to mimic with your hand.
The third tip is to buy plackers. These tools help you floss quickly and efficiently. They are small tools that you can place behind the wire without needing to thread the floss in between each and every time.
