Braces Essentials

If you wear braces or thinking of getting it, then you should know that it is of high maintenance and it takes a lot of time to get between each brackets to clean the teeth and remove plaque. Some braces essentials that I recommended are:

If you currently wear retainers, dentures and mouth gaurds you can also try these products that will help to keep these appliances clean and smelling fresh and nice. 
These comes in packs of 60 ct., 80 ct. and 120 ct. These works well to remove plaques, food from in between the teeth, around the brackets and rubbers. These are much easier to use than the regular floss but it should not be force into tight spaces between teeth. The G-U-M Soft Picks are part rubber and plastic. It has soft rubber bristles that helps to massage and stimulate the gums to promote blood circulation and healthy, firm gum tissues. I recommend using these after every meal. It comes with a convenient storage case that can be used especially when you are on the go. The G-U-M Soft Picks come in several different sizes such as advanced wide, etc. 

G-U-M Soft Picks are not made with natural rubber latex.

G-U-M Eez Thru Floss Threaders

If you are having difficulties getting the floss through the braces wire, bridges, implants, crowns and between the teeth, then you are going to need floss threaders. Simply use the Floss Threaders to pass the floss threader through space between teeth or under appliance. This will help you to complete flossing procedures as recommended by the orthodontist.

G-U-M Proxabrush Go Between Cleaners and Refills

Proxabrush are one of my favorite braces essential product to uses. The Proxabrush has a flexible handle that gives a better control when cleaning hard to reach areas of the teeth. The bristles are of triangular shapes. It can be reused for up to a week and it should be rinsed after each uses to keep it clean. The Proxabrush are made with tiny bristles similar to bristles of a toothbrush but only tinier. Proxabrushes comes in various sizes made specifically to fit between teeth gap and under braces wire. The bristles are antibacterial which helps to keep it clean.

G-U-M Proxabrush Refills
Proxabrush works effectively like string floss. The wire is coated with Nylon that protects dental restorations and galvanic shock. The bristles have a patented Chlorhexidine antibacterial coating that helps to prevent the bristles from bacterial growth. Proxabrush refills should only be used with Proxabrush handle and the refills should not be use alone. Proxabrush should not be forced into tight spaces, do not bend or twist wire during use.

Sea-Bond Dental Bath

The Sea-Bond Dental Bath has a tray inside that you can put your dentures, retainers or guards inside and lift the tray by the handle to take the product out instead of dipping in your finger and getting it wet from the liquid inside. The Sea-Bond Dental Bath is perfect for daily cleaning, overnight soaking and storage and it is leak proof.

Efferdent Anti-Bacterial Denture Cleanser

Efferdent Anti-Bacterial Denture Cleanser
Basically Efferdent is used to clean retainers, dentures and mouth guards. You will need to fill the Sea-Bond Dental bath with warm water, enough to cover the mouth appliances and drop an Efferdent Tablet inside and leave it to soak. The color off the water will change color as it cleans. After 5 minutes remove mouth appliances and rinse thoroughly or leave it to soak overnight. Doing this will result in clean and odor free mouth appliances.

Do not gargle or rinse mouth with solution, throw away after each use.
