I am 38 years old and 20 days back I got braces on my teeth. Now from last 4-5 days I am noticing brown spots on my teeth and even my teeth look yellow then before. I have gum problem called periodontal and after orthodontics a flap surgery is suggested by the dentist.

the spots appear due to poor oral hygiene. brush after each meal with orthodontic toothbrush and use fluoridated mouthwash.
If u started ur tt just twenty days back this shouldn't have been there I think u removed ur braces twenty days ago after full tt pl confirm
First thing your brushing was improper that is why yellow color spots came on teeth. Next is if you had this problem before braces that should have been treated before starting with braces and proper scaling has to be done before braces.
