Happy New Year! Keep your oral hygiene top-notch in 2021 by following these quick tips…


Flossing after every single meal will help keep your teeth and braces clean! To floss with braces, use a floss threader or special orthodontic floss to thread the floss behind each wire. Floss the sides of each tooth beneath the gum line to remove plaque and food particles.


Brush your teeth for two minutes after every meal with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Brush the outside and inside surfaces of your teeth using small, gentle, circular motions while positioning the head of the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line.

Limit Your Sugary Foods

Try to limit sugar intake, including sugary sports drinks and especially soda pop! Sugar contributes to more bacteria and tooth decay. Instead, try to stay hydrated with water. Water can help produce saliva, which naturally washes out the mouth and helps prevent tooth decay.
