Caring for your orthodontic braces is essential because if they become damaged or loose, they will not be able to function properly, thus delaying your recovery time. Keep your braces in good working condition includes avoiding unnecessary risks and keeping them clean always. Listed below are a few helpful tips to keep in mind:

– Protect your braces the same as you would your teeth. Wear appropriate safety gear when playing contact sports or partaking in any activity that poses a danger to your pearly whites.
– Clean your braces every single day, and keep your retainer if you have any in clean condition as well.
– Continue brushing and flossing your teeth each day. If traditional flossing is impossible, switch to an alternative tool such as a water flosser.
– Never try to fix broken braces yourself. Instead, you can minimize the damage and call your orthodontist as soon as possible.
