white spots ARE appearing on my teeth from wearing braces – help!

A common experience for those who are wearing braces is for white spots to develop on the teeth while wearing braces. These spots are usually more visible on front teeth but on closer inspection they can also be observed on back teeth. They are usually chalky white in colour and contrast with the normal creamy white colour of surrounding enamel. The spots are not caused directly by the braces themselves but the braces can make it more difficult to carry out normal oral hygiene procedures such as brushing and flossing.
