Brushing and Flossing

BRUSHING YOUR TEETH WITH BRACES

When you have braces, it’s very important to brush and floss after every meal in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your treatment. If you need help choosing the right toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss, please ask us and we can help you choose the right products for your teeth and your appliance. An important part of your treatment at Kristo includes the Oral B Ortho-Essentials toothbrush kit.
