Braces and Oral Hygiene By Michael Ricupito

Introduction • An oral health professional in private practice, Dr. Michael Ricupito provides orthodontic treatment to patients in and around Fremont, California. Dr. Michael Ricupito holds certification from the American Board of Orthodontics and belongs to the American Association of Orthodontists and the California Dental Association.

About Braces and Oral Hygiene • Individuals with braces ought to brush four times a day to prevent food from gathering in the braces as well as between the teeth. Experts recommend that patients brush after each meal and before sleeping. Due to the additional wear and tear on toothbrush bristles, patients with braces may find they need to purchase new toothbrushes more often. Throughout orthodontic treatment, individuals should rinse with a fluoridated mouthwash.

Conclusion • Though it may require some patience, people with braces need to floss each day to maintain proper oral health. Carefully use a small piece of floss to remove food particles clinging to the archwire of braces. Many individuals prefer to use a threader, which helps them to thread the floss under the archwire.
