Do I still have to get dental exams every 6 months if I wear braces?

Yes, you do. As a matter of fact, people undergoing orthodontic treatments such as orthodontic braces or aligners should see their dentist on a frequent basis. Food can become stuck in spots that your brush can't access with when you are wearing braces. Bacteria builds up as a result, which can contribute to caries, gingivitis, and other types of gum diseases. Your dentist and orthodontist will work together to maintain your teeth clean and healthy if you have braces.
