Am I wearing braces? Yes I am! Lingual braces have made the seemingly impossible - possible. The truly invisible brace which allows the same excellent results as normal conventional braces but with no-one needing to know that you are wearing braces.
When you are wearing braces whether they are removable (e.g. Invisalign) or fixed braces, it is vital that you maintain excellent oral hygiene all throughout treatment. As there is something ‘foreign’ in your mouth, any food or plaque can be left behind on the brace and if not removed can result in a higher risk of decay or gum problems.
Food and plaque can be left behind on the braces after eating. This can be left either on the teeth or on the removable brace if you are eating with the removable brace. After eating, it is best to brush your teeth to remove any residual food and to rinse your removable brace.
