Taking Care of Your Braces

In addition, do not chew on items like bones, pencils, gum, or candy. Also, be sure to maintain follow-up cleaning appointments every three to six months to keep your teeth clean, while brushing and flossing twice a day. Finally, be sure to use one of the many mouth rinses that will be recommend. Once your braces are placed, you will receive detailed instructions on caring for your appliance and an orthodontic home care kit.
