  • There is no need for dry mouth before going to the orthodontist. If the orthodontist feels that there is an excessive salivation, he himself will prescribe you antisialogogues. Orthodontist himself will take care to keep her mouth dry by using suction. Poor oral hygiene leads to more salivation so keep a good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly. You can also use a mouth wash for it. Your question is not very clear but what we interpret from it is that you want to know about the ways to keep dry mouth before visiting orthodontist.  From your side, you can maintain good oral hygiene and even after that if there is excessive salivation, your orthodontist will take care of it. To know about how do braces work, you can refer to the following article... http://www.identalhub.com/article_how-do-braces-work-419.aspx
