If you are working toward the smile of your dreams with Fastbraces® then it’s important to do all you can to have the best treatment possible. One thing you can do is follow the oral hygiene rules set for treatment. These rules can help you care for your teeth and gums and can also help you maintain a top-notch appliance. Our dentist, Dr. Krupakar Reddy Yeturu, is happy to share those rules with you today by listing them here:
-Brush often: Do your best to brush after each meal and snack. To do this, keep your toothbrush and toothpaste with you. Brushing often can remove food substances from your teeth and braces. It can also help you avoid embarrassing food-filled smile moments!
-Use interdental brushes: Interdental brushes can clean the spaces of your smile and appliance that your toothbrush could not reach. So, make sure to use them often so you can remove the harmful substances that attack the teeth and gums.
-Floss regularly: Make sure to floss daily. If you can, floss more often, like after you brush. Flossing can help you remove plaque and food particles from between the teeth and it can even help you prevent dental issues.
-Rinse your mouth daily: Rinsing with mouthwash (antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash) once a day can help you greatly. It can clean the mouth, strengthen the smile and remove bacteria from the teeth and gums.
