How do I brush your teeth with fixed appliances?

teethbrushIt is much more difficult to clean all the plaque from your teeth while wearing fixed braces. If this is not done you will end up with either cavities or permanent visible white spots around the edges of your brackets. Plaque will also quickly cause your gums to become inflamed and bleed during treatment. It is therefore essential that you clean all the plaque from around all the brackets throughout treatment.

You will be shown how to do this and your teeth will be checked for plaque at each visit.

Please bring your toothbrush with you for each appointment.
