Back-To-School (With Braces!)

– Tuesday, August 20, 2013 –

Summer is almost over and school is officially back!  Here is a list of supplies to keep at school if you have braces:

  • Travel toothbrush (or a toothbrush in a case)
  • Toothpaste (any kind)
  • Mini brush (to get in between your braces)
  • Floss and floss threaders (helps to get floss under the wire and between the braces)
  • Flossers (great for those back teeth)
  • Wax (for any tender spots)
  • Ibuprofen (ask your parents and clear it with your school)
