BRUSHING Your Damon Braces

We know that keeping your teeth clean can be challenging with a mouth full of braces, but thanks to Damon System braces and an electric toothbrush, hygiene doesn’t have to be difficult.  

Keeping your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment is very important. Always remember to brush after every meal and floss at least once a day. Healthy teeth and gums are just as important as straight teeth in obtaining a healthy and attractive smile. Dr. Rucker recommends using a Sonicare or Oral-B electric toothbrush during and after orthodontic treatment. 


Cleaning Your Damon Braces with Waterpik

Our goal is to help make cleaning your teeth and braces as easy as possible. If you are like many people that don’t like to floss, consider using a Waterpik Aquarius to remove food and plaque from between your teeth and around your braces. When used properly, the Waterpik Aquarius does a fantastic job and can be even simpler, more effective, and faster to manipulate than floss. Please ask us about the Waterpik Aquarius at your next visit if you are having trouble keeping your teeth clean with braces.
