With braces it is even more important to maintain good oral hygiene. Bacterial plaque quickly builds up around brackets, wires and gums.
Daily Basic Care
Maintain meticulous hygiene is essential to prevent gum disease , the decay , and bad breath , called halitosis. Brushing with a toothbrush is not enough to clean teeth, gums and braces well. The best dentist Tampa or dental hygienist can advise you and inform you about what tools you need for your daily oral hygiene. If you have removable orthodontics, do not forget to brush the removable appliance too, with a toothbrush and water.
