Oral hygiene is crucial for patients undergoing orthodontic treatment, as foods can easily get trapped within your braces or clear aligners. Without proper brushing and flossing, the food will stay trapped and lead to plaque buildup that can damage your teeth and worsen or delay your treatment results.
For this reason, our team has created our Orthodontic Hygiene Program which includes a cleaning by our dedicated dental hygienist every 3 months, in conjunction with your regular orthodontic visit. Our hygienist will show the patient-specific areas that need improvement and will advise proper brushing and flossing techniques when needed. Established pediatric patients who enroll into our Orthodontic Hygiene Program receive an application of fluoride varnish to help protect and strengthen their teeth until their next cleaning.
