Brushing and flossing with braces can be a bit tricky, but it’s super important for your oral health. When our patients are fitted with braces for the first time, they often struggle with thoroughly cleaning their teeth. This is understandable, given that you’re trying to brush and floss between and underneath brackets and wires, which have a tendency to hold on to food bits and other debris. 

The good news is that, with a little bit of practice, you can learn how to properly brush your teeth with braces to ensure you maintain a clean, radiant smile. Check out this video from the American Association of Orthodontists for some super helpful tips on brushing and flossing with braces.
