Brush with Finesse
You should thoroughly brush all tooth surfaces—that means the outside, inside, and chewing surfaces of the teeth—for at least two minutes, after each meal. Pro Tip: Turn on your favorite song, start brushing gently, moving the bristles in small circles at a 45-degree angle to your gums and when the song is over, so are you!
Floss with Precision
In addition to brushing, we recommend flossing every time you brush to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Wondering how to floss around those wires? Try using a simple tool called a floss threader. We show every patient how to floss their teeth with braces. You’ll be a pro in no time!
