Life with Braces
When you get your braces, it will be very important to keep your teeth clean—really clean. Once you begin treatment, we’ll provide you with the instructions, tools and products you’ll need to help you on your way toward a beautiful, healthy smile that all of your friends and family will admire!
At each visit during treatment, we’ll check your oral health and let you know how well you’re doing. We’ll also let you know if there are any areas that you need to work on.
To see Dr. Baird’s toothbrush recommendations, visit her blog post on the best toothbrush for patients in braces.
We also recommend that patients invest in a water flosser. For more information, visit the post on Waterpik water flosser.
