A Brushing a Day Keeps the Cavities Away!

Keeping your teeth clean and healthy takes work. Adding braces to the question just makes the process that much more difficult! Have no fear, Magestro Orthodontics is here! Try a few of these helpful tips that will keep your mouth clean and healthy:

  • Use wax floss. This is stronger than unwaxed floss and less likely to shred when flossing with braces.
  • Use longer floss. A foot and a half (or about 18 inches) should be used to get into all of the nooks and crannies.
  • Use a floss threader. This will make your job much easier when getting the floss under your wires.
  • Brush your teeth after every meal or snack. If you are unable to brush a good alternative is to rinse your mouth thoroughly with water.
  • Use a sonic toothbrush. It works better than manual toothbrushes.
