Clean Teeth and Braces

Posted .

It’s not always easy to convince yourself to spend time cleaning your braces. We understand how busy life gets, and trust us – we know that cleaning braces can be a bit of a pain.

But here’s the thing – if you’re a teenager, your parents are forking over a good amount of money to help you have a great smile. They’re investing in your future. You need to do your part to take care of that investment.

That’s why it’s so important to keep your teeth clean when wearing braces. Our team here at Ifantis Dental Care in Morton Grove, Illinois has the tools to help you keep those pearly whites…well, white! Let’s look at the different ideas we suggest for getting clean teeth.

Using the right flossers
Working floss in and around your braces can be a bit of a challenge. Luckily, we have some flossers that are made just for working around braces. If you don’t have a flosser you’re comfortable with, contact our staff today to get a recommendation on which flosser to purchase.

Brush after eating
The biggest thing you can do to care for your teeth when wearing braces is to brush after every meal. That seems like a lot of work, but it’s not. Just a quick brush to get rid of the food trapped in your teeth, and you’re good to go!

Caring for your teeth while wearing braces isn’t as difficult as it may seem at first. If you have any other questions, please contact us at 847-268-4998 today.
