You will receive detailed care instructions from your orthodontist and the Braces Omaha team on the day you receive your braces, including demonstrations on how to brush and floss your teeth with braces, and how to keep your appliances sparkly clean and working their best. We will also provide special toothbrushes, flossing aids, toothpaste, and mouth rinses to maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.
In general, excellent oral hygiene while in orthodontic treatment is a must. You should brush at least three to four times each day, after each meal and before going to bed. Flossing daily will help get in between your braces where your toothbrush can’t reach. Please see our Braces FAQ for additional information about caring for your braces and appliances. Also, take a look at our section, Life with Braces, for even more useful information.
