Maintain Oral Hygiene During Orthodontics

Maintaining Good Oral Hygiene During Orthodontic Treatment

Good Dental Habits Help Patients, Dentists, and Orthodontists

Dr. Yazdani encourages patients to take part in daily teeth care at home and is are available to walk you through good cleaning techniques if you need assistance.

Patient oral hygiene plays an important role in orthodontic treatment and has an effect on the overall time and quality of results. Caring for your teeth through brushing and flossing is extremely important if you have braces or wires because it is easier for food to get stuck, and plaque and bacteria to build up. 

An important note while caring for your braces:  The better care you take of your teeth, the sooner your braces can be taken off. If you maintain good oral hygiene during your treatment, the more comfortable and effective it will be. 

Your dental hygienist will design and implement a high-quality oral care program when you begin your treatment which is extremely beneficial to all parties involved in the treatment, including patient/parent, dentist, and orthodontist.

The success of your oral care program is not confined to patient clinical visits but applies to good oral hygiene habits at home. At Yazdani Dental, we emphasize the importance of patient education, encouragement, and building on patient success at home to maximize treatment results.

We find better compliance from patients with positive reinforcement and established routines that help them achieve their desired result.
