Cleaning your Braces

  • Brush 3 times a day for 5 minutes each time
  • Make sure all the teeth and gum margins are brushed
  • Brush around each block under the wire and the margin of the tooth and gum
  • There should be NO CREAMY DEBRIS (plaque) sitting on the teeth and gums
  • At the start of your brace treatment chew a disclosing tablet after brushing to see where you’re missing
  • Throughout your treatment use a fluoride mouthwash once a day for 1 minute separate to brushing -spit out, don’t rinse out
  • Bleeding gums are a sign you are not brushing enough or correctly
  • You should never attend the orthodontist with a dirty mouth
