Using braces is a pain in the mouth, literally. First when you get them the hurt like hell, fell uncomfortable and make the easiest of jobs a titanic chore. Simple things like speaking, eating or even brushing are ten times harder than normal. This will be your life for some months or weeks depending on how good you are adapting. Luckily for you we got some tips on how to make the dental hygiene part easier for you!

Contrary to many people’s opinion, you have to keep brushing normally. You cannot abandon your dental hygiene routine just because you got braces. Be gentler when brushing but do not leave any spot without touching the bristles of your tooth brush. You should also keep brushing at least 3 times a day, especially after every meal to avoid food debris stuck in your braces.

 

How to floss while using dental braces

Flossing can be some of the hardest things to do when using braces. You can stick with the traditional floss, but keep in mind that you may need a couple of more inches to reach those far places. Even so, go slow and steady just like brushing to avoid cutting the floss with your braces. What I can recommend is changing your dental floss with a little brush that works wonders to braces’ users. It is very tiny and convenient and can help you clean your braces real good.

 

The braces treatment can last 1 to 2 years depending on the case, and after you jump into retainers.  In the meantime you go to your dentist for control and you should keep going for regular cleaning, we recommend Dental Solutions in Los Algodones Mexico. This way you will ensure that your teeth will look great after the braces are taken off!
