Oral Hygiene Instructions

Hold the toothbrush at 45 degrees towards the teeth and the gums. Use gentle force back and forth in a “jiggling” motion to remove the plaque between the teeth and the gums.

After that hold the toothbrush at 45 degrees towards the upper part of the braces and brush in a back and forth motion. Subsequently hold the toothbrush at 45 degrees towards the lower part of the braces and brush in a back and forth motion.

Lastly, brush the biting surfaces in a back and forth motion.

Use a small interdental toothbrush to clean in between the brackets. Remember to hold it adjacent to the bracket for maximal effects.

Use a fluoride mouthrinse daily to supplement your brushing. This will reduce risks of enamel decalcification, tooth decay and gum disease.
