teeth, health, smile, dentist, dentalhealth , oralhealthAlthough braces are an effective way of achieving a healthy smile, they can also make it harder to brush your teeth thoroughly. Here are some things worth keeping in mind.

Key takeaways:

  • Use an interdental brush in addition to your regular toothbrush.
  • Floss underneath the braces wires using a floss threader.
  • Always brush downwards at a 45-degree angle to make sure you reach every corner.
