Yeah, definitely not recommended. With braces on, your teeth are in a vulnerable state, so you have to brush twice a day. If you don't, all of the bacteria will get under your braces.

use mouthwash and floss if you dont brush your teeth twice a day. but it's very important that you do brush twice a day.

I hated flossing with a passion with braces, gets stuck and it’s so fiddly. But you should at least use the little tree things they recommend to get rid of food and plaque between your teeth. I eventually got a waterpik and it made it so much easier, instead of spending a good 30minutes trying to floss, I was done in like 5 although they’re not cheap, you could probably get a good deal on amazon though.

You need to brush your teeth at least 2 times a day. Don’t use whitening toothpaste or mouthwash. Avoid fizzy drinks or tea/ coffee when you can. I know some people just used straws to drink them instead. You can always get your teeth cleaned by the hygienist and get whitening done after your braces come off but you still need to look after your teeth.
