Oral hygiene for the orthodontic patient

Patients who just received their new braces are often insecure about the correct way to do good oral hygiene - no matter if the braces are fixed or removable.

Bad oral hygiene can lead to tooth decay. Braces trap food very easily, which contributes to plaque formation. Plaque has to be carefully removed from teeth and around braces to avoid gum diseases.
