How do I take care of my teeth while wearing braces?

Braces catch food which encourages dental plaque. So, to keep your teeth healthy you need to take special care while you wear braces. We therefore recommend that:

  • After every meal you brush and then rinse with a high fluoride mouthwash, and
  • Every day, you gently floss between your teeth and braces.
