It's Orthodontic Health Month!

October 9, 2018

In honor of Orthodontic Health Month, Dr. Ghatri and our team thought we would offer a few oral hygiene tips for our patients currently undergoing orthodontic treatment.

For those of you wearing braces, it’s important to be even more dedicated to good oral hygiene than those not currently in treatment. After getting your braces, it is important to know how to take care of your teeth in order to ensure that your braces stay intact and do their job so that your teeth are in top-notch condition after you complete your orthodontic treatment.

Here are some oral hygiene tips to use as a rule of thumb:

Braces are known to trap food, which contributes to plaque formation. If it is not carefully removed from the teeth and gums, plaque will develop into decay or gum disease, leading to costly delays during your treatment. It is important to practice good oral hygiene by following instructions from Dr. Ghatri during your treatment. We are proud to offer supplies to help fight plaque, such as a Proxabrush, dental floss, and floss threaders. The use of an electric toothbrush and or a water pick can also be helpful in combating cavities and decay. And, of course, our team at Let's Smile suggests brushing at least twice a day. We hope that helps! If you have any questions, please give us a call at our Springfield, Fairfax, or Reston, VA office or ask us during your next adjustment appointment!
