How to keep your braces clean…!

        Braces are those devices which are used to align and straighten teeth. These devices not only correct the position, improve the smile but also keep the mouth healthy and improve speech.

If you choose a regular electric or sonic toothbrush, it can be very difficult to use the brush well enough in your mouth with braces on. If you use a normal toothbrush, you will need to brush your teeth with the bristles angled bi-directionally. All sides of the teeth must be cleaned, so a toothbrush small and flexible enough to move easily around your mouth should be used.
