Do I Need To Change My Oral Hygiene Routine During Orthodontic Treatment?
Yes, keeping your teeth and braces (or other appliances) clean requires a little more effort on your part. Your orthodontist will explain how to brush and floss, how often to brush and floss, and give you any special instructions based on the kind of orthodontic treatment you are having. Be sure to follow your orthodontist’s dental hygiene prescription to get the best results possible. Check with your orthodontist about dental products and tools that might be helpful. Also be sure to get a professional cleaning and check-up at least every six months during your orthodontic treatment, or more often, if recommended.
