  Angle the bristles of your toothbrush up so they reach under the archwire and the bracket wings of your bottom braces. Angle the bristles down so they reach under the archwire and the bracket wings of your top braces. Use your rotary toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste after every meal and after snacking to avoid decalcification from plaque.

Floss your teeth at least twice every week. Thread floss under the archwire and work the floss between each tooth.

  Use a fluoride rinse once in the morning and once at night
before going to bed.

Avoid all beverages with sugar, especially sweet tea and sodas. Sugar feeds plaque that decalcifies your enamel and leaves ugly marks on your teeth.

Stay away from any hard food, like ice, nuts, popcorn, corn chips, or hard candy. Also, avoid sticky foods like taffy, chewing gum, or caramel candy. These foods will break your braces!
