Teeth Whitening With Braces, At-Home Cleaning & Stain Removal Guide Launched

Valleant, an online platform specializing in health education and preventative care, has published a new guide on how to whiten teeth when wearing braces.

According to data from The Tooth Doc, approximately four million Americans wear braces which can lead to staining and discolouration of the teeth if not appropriately managed. In the new guide, Valleant explains how to effectively whiten teeth without damaging orthodontic braces in the process - recommending in-office, at-home and natural teeth whitening techniques.

Due to metal braces covering parts of the teeth, whitening methods can be a challenge, particularly when aiming for uniformity in color. “Since braces cover parts of the teeth, they may whiten unevenly,” says the guide. “It may be advisable to wait until the braces are removed to begin a comprehensive whitening regimen.” However, individuals wearing lingual braces attached to the back of the teeth or clear, removable aligners can expect successful results.

The guide shares tips for pre-whitening oral hygiene, highlighting the importance of thorough cleaning around brackets and wires. Interdental brushes are useful for cleaning hard-to-reach areas, ensuring all food particles and plaque are removed. Valleant recommends using fluoride toothpaste to strengthen the enamel and help prevent decalcification.

Before starting a teeth whitening regime, individuals should consult an orthodontist who can advise on their suitability for different treatment methods. In-office treatment is recommended for those with braces to ensure that orthodontic brackets are protected from exposure to whitening agents.

Therefore, those looking to whiten teeth at home should choose their whitening products very carefully, says the guide. “Whitening toothpaste and mouth rinses are the most accessible forms of at-home teeth whitening for brace wearers. They typically contain mild abrasives and chemicals that can help in removing surface stains on teeth.” Individuals should look out for products containing hydrogen peroxide, which safely breaks down stains on the teeth without damaging enamel.

The guide also delves into natural methods for teeth whitening including a baking soda paste, hydrogen peroxide rinse and fruit-based peel. Following any whitening procedure, individuals are advised to limit their intake of high-stain food and drinks and make use of a straw to minimize contact with the teeth.
