Brushing with Braces
 

You will notice that it is much harder to keep your teeth clean with braces. Food catches in the brackets and between your teeth, and plaque builds up especially at the gum line areas. If plaque remains on the teeth for any length of time, it may leave a permanent white scar on the surface.

Brushing after meals should become part of your daily schedule. Try to brush at least four times a day. Use a soft toothbrush with firm pressure.  Brush at a 45 degree angle to the tooth; brush in small circles above and below the brackets. Concentrate on the gumline areas. Proper brushing should take at least two minutes total.
