When should I clean my teeth and braces?

It is really important to keep your brace and teeth free of food matter and plaque. If you don't, you can get gum swelling and bleeding, tooth decay with permanent marks and smelly breath. Not nice!

Always brush your teeth and brace after eating and before bedtime. Try to confine eating to mealtimes and if you plan to eat anything sweet or sugary - do so with or immediately after your meal and then clean your teeth and brace thoroughly. Daily use of a mouthwash with added fluoride is recommended as this helps to keep the enamel surfaces of your teeth around the brace strong and healthy.
