Oral hygiene with braces
Good oral hygiene is essential for a successful orthodontic treatment.
THE AMERICAN DENTAL ASSOCIATION RECOMMENDS TWO CLEANINGS/EXAM A YEAR
While it is true that your teeth are harder to see during your treatment, good oral hygiene is more important than ever. Not only will your teeth continue to accumulate plaque and tartar, but your dental work can also give these substances additional place to hide.
