Why is Flossing and Brushing Important During Orthodontic Treatment?
Flossing and brushing is important for everyone since poor oral hygiene has been linked to significant health issues such as heart problems, dementia, respiratory infections, cancer, diabetes, and fertility issues with both men and women. Gum disease is incredibly difficult and expensive to treat, and can often result in the loss of teeth. So, good oral hygiene extends far beyond preventing bad breath.
During orthodontic treatment with braces, there are more places for food and sugar to get trapped. Dr. Castilla and the team will show you some tips and tricks for keeping your good oral hygiene during your treatment with us.
Do I Need to See My Regular Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment?
It is a common misconception that regular visits to the dentist aren’t necessary during orthodontic treatment because the patient is going to the orthodontist instead. While flossing, using proxibrushes, waterpiks, and electronic toothbrushes will help keep up a patient’s oral hygiene, your hygienist will be able to give you a much more thorough cleaning. This is why we always recommend seeing your regular dentist once every six months during orthodontic treatment with braces.
