We talk about oral hygiene a lot. Why is that? Because it is vital to us that when your braces are removed that you have not only a fabulous smile… but also a healthy one!
A Healthy Smile is a Beautiful Smile!
How you clean your teeth makes a difference. That is why on the day we place your braces, we give you a complete set of supplies to keep your teeth clean while you are in treatment. It includes, among other things, a state-of-the-art electric toothbrush. We give you that brush for a reason. Research has shown that an electric brush does a more thorough job cleaning your teeth than a manual one.
It Can’t Help You if You Don’t Use It
One of our patients mentioned that they had a hard time getting used to the vibration of the electric brush. That was my experience when I first made the change, as well. That is why I use the gentle setting and I find that it makes all the difference. Please give that a try or reach out to us for other suggestions before you give up entirely.
