Cleaning clear aligners and fixed braces
You have made a big step towards your beautiful smile by deciding to go for teeth straightening, whether it is Invisalign clear brace aligners or traditional fixed braces, but how can you make sure that during the treatment length your teeth and gums remain healthy?
In this video Rose, our wonderful dental hygienist, highlights the areas to watch out for while showing you how to properly clean you Invisalign clear brace aligners or traditional orthodontic braces at home.
Top tips from our dental hygienist:
- Use a fluoride toothpaste and angle your electric toothbrush towards the gum line to remove bacteria
- Use a fluoride mouthwash at a separate time to brushing
- Bacteria can also build up under the wire so try using an interdental brush to clean under it
- Use an interdental brush in-between the teeth to prevent gum disease in areas that cannot be reached by your toothbrush
