• Battle Ground Orthodontist – The Basics of Brushing and Flossing With Braces

  • So now that you have braces you’re probably noticing some significant changes in your everyday life. Eating and chewing most likely feel very different than they did before you had braces. Even talking and laughing might feel different. There’s also surely some soreness going on that you would rather not have and some of your teeth might even feel loose.

    Don’t worry, though; these are all common things associated with having braces. Give it a few weeks or so, and all of these strange new feelings will begin to seem normal and the soreness should subside. One important thing to remember while you’re wearing braces is to continue to practice careful dental hygiene. Although Brushing and flossing might be more difficult with braces, they are still just as important.

    Brushing and flossing with braces might also require a little more work than they did before braces. However, it’s important to take the extra time to do them right.
