Will I Have To Change My Oral Hygiene Habits After Braces?
Decalcification, which is plaque formation that causes calcium losses, often results in white spots appearing on the surface of teeth. This is one of the most common problems with poor dental hygiene and braces. Your orthodontist will instruct you on oral care to avoid such issues. You’ll brush and floss regularly, and you’ll be given detailed instructions and tips on how to do so with braces. There are also special brushes and dental floss threaders to help you clean around your braces and underneath your wires.
It will be important to utilize the orthodontic oral care tools and guidelines your orthodontist sets for you. Follow your orthodontist’s advice so that your teeth will remain healthy during treatment and be picture-perfect when the treatment is complete, and your new smile is revealed.
