Tips For Cleaning Your Teeth When Wearing Braces

3rd July 2018

At Optismile Advanced Dentistry in Sea Point we assist patients with straightening teeth and restoring smiles. However, it can be challenging to clean your teeth when in braces. This increases your risk of gum disease. We offer Invisalign Clear Aligners to get results faster than conventional braces. It is perfect for adults and teens that are looking for an alternative.

Here are some cleaning tips:

Main takeaways:

– Must-have cleaning tools include an interdental cleaner, a soft-bristled toothbrush, waxed floss, and a floss threader.

– Rinse your mouth with water before brushing to remove food residue.

– Brush twice daily and floss every day.

Consult your dentist on the best mouthwash to use when wearing braces. Also, book regular dental checkups.
