After Dr. Lynskey places your braces, maintaining them and your oral health requires a new level of care and attention. It may take a little getting used to, but we’ll help you know what to do to keep your braces in top condition throughout your orthodontic treatment.
The importance of thorough care
Proper oral hygiene may be a bit more difficult with braces, which makes it essential you develop best practices to keep your braces, teeth, and mouth clean and healthy. Taking good care of your smile prevents dental problems like tooth decay, gum disease, and demineralization.
If left untreated, these problems can cause more serious oral health issues, and they can prolong your orthodontic treatment.
