If you’ve decided to have orthodontic treatment, you’ll know what an important step you’re taking towards improving the look of your teeth. If you’re already wearing your braces, no doubt you’re looking forward to the day they come off to reveal your new smile!

The benefits of orthodontic treatment go way beyond looks. Crooked or crowded teeth may cause uneven wear of tooth surfaces or jaw problems that may lead to complications later in life. They can also be difficult to clean properly, which makes them prone to tooth decay and gum disease.

So, while you’re wearing braces, remember that the success of your treatment is affected by how well you care for your teeth and gums. Good oral care at home involves effectively removing plaque from your teeth, gums and braces every day. Not only will it keep your treatment time on course, but it will also contribute to the continued health of your teeth and gums.
