Spring is right around the corner, which means so is spring cleaning! As you spring clean your house, spring clean your braces. This can help you have the clean and pristine braces you need to achieve the perfect smile you desire. Our orthodontist, Dr. Deji Fashemo, is happy to help you spring clean your braces by giving you the tips you need. Those tips are:

-Visit your dentist for a professional dental cleaning: Professional dental cleanings are very important for your oral health. It’s also the perfect treatment to deeply clean your teeth, gums and braces and get rid of any stubborn and dangerous substances from your smile.

-Replace your toothbrush: Spring cleaning is the perfect time to get a new toothbrush! It’s strongly recommended to replace your toothbrush every three to four months or when the bristles have frayed. Typically, bristles fray quickly because braces tend to wear the toothbrush down.

-Invest in a water flosser: Water flossers can help you spring clean your smile because they spray a strong stream of water into the crevices of the smile and remove plaque and other substances, keeping your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. This can make flossing when you have braces much easier.
