Tips for Oral Hygiene With Braces

When you have braces on the outside of your teeth, then you need to make sure that you are taking the best care of them. Bacteria and plaque build up can happen easily when it comes to being caked in between the braces on the mouth.

When this build up sits on the outside of the teeth, it can eat through the enamel and cause cavities to happen. These cavities can be hard to get too to fix because of the braces being in the way. This is why having the best oral hygiene practices is strongly recommended.

Another consideration is that you need to not eat sticky, chewy, hard or crunchy foods that are going to stick to the braces, cause them to break or even might cause the food to get stuck in areas where it should not be.
