I have braces and I had a bad habit of falling asleep before

Customer Question

I have braces and I had a bad habit of falling asleep before brushing my teeth. Im trying to break the habit. My dentist said my teeth look healthly but they are yellowish. Will there be any way to reverse this? And will there be anything wrong once my braces get taken off?

Hello,

Is never too late to start taking care of your teeth. Its great that you have decided to brush at night before sleeping. This is by far the most important brush of the entire day.

Yes, the yellowing of teeth can be reversed by a process called as bleaching or tooth whitening. This will be done after your braces have been removed.

Don't worry, maintain a rigorous oral hygiene regimen from now on.
