It is important to maintain a healthy diet while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Avoiding sticky, sugary foods will reduce the amount of plaque, tartar and buildup on your teeth and also reduce the risk of tooth decay.

Orthodontic Treatment Oral Hygiene and Diet

Watch this video below to see which foods to avoid while wearing braces.

These videos will provide you with information on how to brush and floss your teeth while your teeth are being straightened with braces.

Poor oral hygiene can lead to decalcification of teeth. Plaque stays on your teeth and if not brushed away can start to remove the minerals from your teeth resulting in permanent white or yellow marks on your teeth. Excellent oral hygiene will prevent this from happening during orthodontic treatment.
