When do I have to brush my teeth with braces?
I know I have to brush them after:

but what about snacks through out he day?
for example: right now I really want to eat a Hershey Kiss<333
but will I have to brush right after or just rinse quickly with water?

you actually shouldn't eat chocolate with braces =3

You want to brush after every meal, at bedtime, and when you eat snacks when you have braces. If you don't, the sugars from what you are eating can sit in the areas between the brackets and cause cavitites to form in those areas. You want to make sure to brush and floss everyday and at these times. If you are going somewhere you can buy the throw-away toothbrushes, and if you can't do any of it at least rinse your mouth out until you get home and are able to do it.

your only sposed to brush them twice a day, like the guy above me said.

i have braces to, why would you brush them after everything you eat? your only gonna eat more after it which would defeat the purpose..??

it depends what you are eating, and if you have brackets on all of your teeth... if you want to eat something , just quickly rinse your mouth out!!!! :)

yes, brush your teeth after every meal.

if you want to eat a snack through out the day...just rinse your mouth with water (if you're in public ) or rinse it with mouthwash (if you're at home) you can (if you want) brush your teeth after snacks as well.

Rinse with a mouthwash after eating snacks.

For snacks you can just rinse your mouth, but it wouldn't hurt if yuo brushed once more, but don't brush too much or you'll wipe off your enamel and your gums will recede...
Soo.. just rinse your mouth out, or nothing, but you might get food in your teeth.

Rinsing always helped me and I never got a cavity! Just make sure that you floss- VERY important! (You don't want that perfect smile to get ruined!) It's great to know that you are taking such great care of your dental health- most people aren't aware of this, but good dental hygiene affects your overall health- GOOD FOR YOU!

??? just brush it twice a day. wen u wake up and b4 bed. thts it dude. wow.

Don't worry about it too much, Brushing more than 3 times a day can be hard on your gums so if you need to brush more than that then be gentle! Use those little tools that you got from your orthodontist to get extra food out of your braces after snacks and meals. It's difficult for your mouth to clean food off of braces so you run a risk of getting bad breath. But Just brush the standard 3 times a day and you should be fine! I had braces for 2 years, i wasn't too obsessive, and my teeth are fine now!

you should really bring a portable toothbrush with you there ARE toothbrushes now with built in toothpaste and you just throw them away after you use them. basically every time you eat something you should brush your teeth. or if you dont have a tooth brush, at least use mouth wash
