Why would they be doing that?

Hey, I just have a quick question about braces. I would assume this would be an okay forum to ask. Every time I eat and something gets trapped in my teeth, my gums get extremely inflamed and try to swell over my brackets. Even after I’ve brushed my teeth and used mouthwash, it takes hours for the inflammation to go down. Why would they be doing that?

Don't let food trap for longer than 45mins . Brush after every meal .Use lukewarm salt water and mouthwash .Also, gingivitis could be from side effect of other medications you are on. Go check with your dentist if your symptoms are worsening.
