Most people are not born with a perfect smile. As your teeth came in, they may have come in slightly jagged at an angle. There may also be spaces between your teeth. Braces are a solution to these problems. They pull your teeth into the correct place and correct any imperfections.
However, wearing braces means that you must also take extra good care of your teeth. In this video, you will learn how to prevent cavities if you have braces.
First, do exactly as your dentist recommends. They are a professional and have undoubtedly worked with many people who have had braces. They will likely tell you to continue brushing twice a day as well as flossing. However, they will also likely tell you to use a special type of threading floss to get under the wires of the braces. Food gets stuck much more easily, so it is especially crucial to floss. Further, a fluoride rinse will also help dislodge any extra debris while also coating the tooth in a protective fluoride. A Waterpik is another great way to floss in these hard to reach places.
