    1. A good oral hygiene routine is the best thing you can start with. One from that…
      The best methods are really going to depend on a number of factors.

      1. Have you still got braces or have they been removed?
      2. What country are you based in? (Whitening products vary from one country to another)

  1. Ok so why can’t we whiten our teeth with the braces on and when they get off, have more strips and put them on again? Just don’t put on the whitening strips 50 times before you get your braces off bc then the teeth outside of the square will be 50 shades whiter than the square yk??

    1. There is some logic to this, however, you want to ensure your teeth whiten evenly as best as possible. Performing a whitening procedure when the braces are still on could cause for an inconsistent whitening effect that may not be undone/resolved with whitening once the braces are off.

    1. Regular brushing and flossing is the best approach. You dentist can do some cleaning if required. You could use a whitening toothpaste, but this isn’t really advised. Ideally it is best to wait until they are off so the teeth have can whiten at the same time.

    1. It is likely you can still get braces. You will need to be assessed by an orthodontist before any treatment is approved/begins. Technically there is little reason you could not have a filling and get braces the same day, although typically they are usually completed as 2 separate treatments.

  2. It has been 11months that i got my braces but now I am getting yellow stains under the braces and implants and calculus under tongue thrusting appliance…but i sm very much worried…my doctor haven’t done any kind of cleansing process in these 11months…i do brush twice a day but i have a lot of appliances in my mouth.. seeing these yellow stains is haunting me… please do help
