Do you want to know how to Keep Your Braces Clean?
I will tell you ten Tips To Keep Your Braces Clean.
No.1. Avoid hard sticky foods:
You can still eat most of the food you enjoyed before braces, but some foods are more
prone to getting caught in the wires or elastics, or even breaking a wire or bracket.
Foods to avoid include: Chewy chocolate bars, taffy/caramel candies and gummy bears
Very sticky or chunky peanut butter Hard candies Nuts Popcorn Gum.
No.2. Take care with hard fruits and vegetables:
You can still enjoy these foods, but you may want to take extra care with:
Corn on the cob – cut off the cob first Apples and carrots – cut into small pieces
No.3. Floss your teeth at least once a day:
Floss can be threaded through the space between the braces and where the top of the
teeth meet the gums. Push the floss down under the wires between your brackets.
Remember to floss every tooth, even the ones in the far back. If you like, you can
purchase special “floss threaders” for braces at the drugstore.
No.4. Brush your teeth:
Brush at least three times a day: after every meal, and even after every snack if possible.
Take your time and brush really well, but not too hard. Clean every tooth surface and
around each individual brace very carefully.

No.5. Rinse after brushing:
When done brushing, rinse your mouth with a fluoride containing mouth rinse
(such as Oral B) to make sure all surfaces are clean and fresh.
No.6. Avoid teeth whitening products:
While your braces are on, don’t use whitening products including whitening toothpaste or
whitening mouthwash. The whitening agent only works on the place it touches, so wait
until your braces are off before whitening or your teeth colour will be uneven.
No.7. Use water power:
Oral irrigation devices, such as the Water-Pik, allow the user to “floss”
with a strong stream of water
No.8. Try a proxy brush:
These brushes have very small wire bristles that fit in hard to reach spaces
around your braces. They can be purchased most places where toothbrushes are sold.
No.9. Make a braces kit:
Put together a “go kit” to take with you through the day. Pack a small bag with
a toothbrush, toothpaste and floss, a little bottle of mouthwash and even a
small mirror. Keep it in your car, locker, purse or backpack.
No.10. Hands off:
Don’t play with your braces. Don’t pick at them, bend the
wires or try to adjust anything yourself.
