Oral Hygiene With Braces

young woman oral hygiene with braces timonium md Maintaining healthy teeth with braces can be difficult for some patients. There are extra steps in the oral hygiene routine and special tools you can use to clean the teeth while wearing braces. At Izadi Orthodontics we understand how confusing it may be to take care of your teeth with braces.

Dr. Izadi and our dental care team believe patient education is one the best ways to keep our patients informed. Our dental care team can help you make informed, smart decisions about your oral hygiene that will keep your braces clean and your teeth healthy.

Brushing, flossing, rinsing, and preventive dental care visits are vital to maintaining healthy teeth. However, patients with braces are more prone to developing tartar and plaque. When tartar and plaque are not adequately removed, it may lead to complex dental issues like tooth decay, and gum disease.

Following a healthy oral hygiene routine is imperative to achieving a healthy smile. Dr. Izadi can work with you to help you create an oral hygiene routine that is right for your smile. Patients with braces may find it easier to use specific oral health products because they are able to reach between the braces for a thorough cleaning.

Dr. Izadi may recommend:

  • Interdental toothbrush
  • Electric toothbrush
  • Floss threader
  • Antibacterial rinses or mouthwash
  • Toothpaste with fluoride
