Dear Dr Bobby,
Are Braces Hard to Keep Clean?
Your orthodontist will teach you how to keep your teeth clean while the braces are on. Most people who get braces already have good oral hygiene and they usually have no problem adapting.

The upside to this oral hygiene education is that kids form good habits and become life-long experts on keeping their teeth clean.
