Regular Maintenance of Braces (Braces)

Braces or braces are orthodontic tools used to straighten and align teeth. Braces need regular and careful maintenance to function correctly and effectively. Here's what you need to know about caring for braces:

Regular Brushing: Brackets present potential areas for food debris and plaque to accumulate. Therefore, it is important to brush your teeth after every meal. This removes food debris and bacteria, as well as reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Using Special Brushes: In addition to a standard toothbrush, you can use specially designed interdental brushes to clean around brackets and wires.

Flossing: Braces may make flossing difficult, but that doesn't make it less important to clean between your teeth. Be careful to clean between your teeth using special braces threaders or orthodontic dental floss.

Mouthwash: Antiseptic mouthwash can help kill bacteria that has accumulated between the brackets. However, seek your dentist's advice on which product you should use.

Food Choice: Avoid hard, sticky or sugary foods. Such foods can damage or stick to the brackets. Also, be careful when biting into hard foods, especially apples or corn.

Regular Check-ups: Visit your orthodontist regularly to check the condition and cleanliness of your brackets. These visits are critical to detect any problems early.

Be Careful: Wear a mouth guard when engaging in physical activities, especially contact sports. This prevents damage to your brackets or lips.

Proper care of braces plays a critical role in the success of your treatment process. Careful and regular care protects the health of your teeth and ensures that your orthodontic treatment gives the desired results.
