Q.

Braces

Hi
Why do my bottom teeth under my braces go yellow, i brush them like the rest of my teeth, if not more.
I am so self conscious.
Thank you!

there is an opening of a salivary duct in that area.
This makes it easier for calculus build up even in people without braces.
The braces are a compounding factor in calculus build up due to more difficult cleaning
