Brushing and Flossing with Braces

Proper brushing and flossing techniques with braces

When you have braces, it's critically important to brush and floss very regularly in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your treatment. With braces, we recommend brushing at least 4 times per day:

  • In the morning after breakfast
  • After lunch or right after school
  • After dinner
  • At bedtime

If you need help choosing the right toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss, please ask us and we can help you choose the right products for your teeth and your appliance.
