Traditional metal braces require a little extra care. In the end, you’ll be glad you made the effort. Your metal braces will continue to work for you when you take the proper steps to keep them clean. With metal braces, there are a few additional steps that can easily ensure a healthy smile during your treatment with braces.
Food can get stuck in the archwires of your metal braces, which sets the stage for plaque and gingivitis. Regular toothbrushes and floss may work, but there are also tools like Proxabrushs that can clean more effectively between teeth and your braces. These tools should be used along with your normal brushing and flossing regime. These simple steps for brushing with braces can help you achieve the best oral health possible while protecting your metal braces.
