If you’re curious to know why brushing is very important when you have braces, then our orthodontist, Dr. Park, is more than happy to help you. After all, brushing is recommended after every time you eat. That’s right, even after your snacks. To help you understand why, our orthodontist is happy to list a couple reasons here:

Brushing removes plaque and food particles from your braces and teeth. This is very helpful because plaque can cause serious dental issues (like tooth decay and gum disease) and food particles can cause an embarrassing food-filled smile as well as a bad breath. If you want a healthy and attractive smile as well as a pristine breath when you have braces, it’s best to brush regularly.

Brushing helps you keep your braces in tip-top shape. If you care for your braces, they can care for you. In other words, if you do your best to care for your braces by brushing regularly, there is a good chance you can have a better and more positive orthodontic journey.
