5 tips for caring for
your braces

There are a few simple things you can do to make sure your treatment goes as smoothly as possible.

  • Brush after every meal: brush around your brackets to ensure no food is hiding.
  • Use the mouthwash and brushes we provide: these have been made specifically with braces in mind and will help you maintain good
    dental hygiene.
  • Don’t chew gum or eat hard sweets: you could damage or even break the brackets and archwires on your braces, requiring an additional visit
    to our practice.
  • Avoid acidic and sugary drinks: these types of drinks can harm the health of your teeth and may promote cavities.
  • Err on the side of caution: if you’re concerned about your teeth or braces at any time, contact us and we’ll help you right away.

How to care for Invisalign® clear aligners

Your Invisalign® clear aligners can be removed to play sports, practice instruments and eat. But there are still a few simple rules you need to follow to keep your teeth healthy.

  • Remove them before eating: your clear aligners are made of durable plastic, but they are not meant to be worn while eating.
  • Brush your teeth and aligners before wearing them: make sure both your aligners and teeth are clean before putting them back in
    your mouth.
  • Wear them 22 hours a day: to keep your treatment on track, it’s important to wear your Invisalign® clear aligners as instructed!
