Your Daily Hygiene Routine With Braces

Child Braces Marietta GA

Your daily hygiene routine with braces is very important. Taking care of your teeth while wearing any type of orthodontic appliances will ensure your teeth and gums are healthy once your treatment is complete. If you aren’t following proper home care, you may find once the braces come off you have swollen gums, stained teeth, and possible enamel damage.

Our team at William R. Kincer DMD wants your journey with braces to be a success, so here are some easy ways to care for your teeth at home.

Brush Every Day

Brushing twice a day with braces is essential, but if you can do it after every meal that’s even better. This will remove food debris from sitting on your teeth for long periods of time. If you don’t have access to a brush, give your mouth a good rinse with water until you get home.

The positioning of your brush can make a big difference as well. Placing your brush on your teeth at a 45 degree angle will make it more effective in cleaning away food and plaque from the teeth, gums and around the braces. Be sure to brush for at least two minutes and don’t forget the inner and chewing surfaces as well.

Floss Every Day

Flossing regularly should also be added to your daily routine. This will help to remove debris from between the teeth and under the gums. This will also minimize any inflammation and irritation of the gum tissues. Specialized flossing tools or water flossers can be used to help make flossing with braces much simpler.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
