When you have braces it’s very important to brush your teeth after every meal. Why? Because wearing braces can give food particles and bacteria extra spaces to hide and thrive. This will help keep your teeth and gums healthy while they make their journey to be closer together and providing you with a great smile. We know it can be a challenge to brush and floss after every meal but the sooner you get in the habit the better your orthodontic treatment experience will be.
