Once orthodontic treatment is complete, it is advised to get a hygiene as the orthodontics does collect food which means build-up of tartar. Proper oral care isn’t just about making your teeth look pretty. Maintaining healthy teeth after having braces is essential as you are more likely to have plaque and stains on your teeth.
Ways that you can ensure your teeth are healthy are by:
• Brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a soft bristled brush
• Flossing once a day to remove plaque and food particles
• Cleaning your retainers
This is the key to avoiding common dental problems like gingivitis, tartar, and demineralization. Gums are under a state of inflammation which means they are less likely to fight off bacteria. Hence why inflammations of the gums and gum disease are more of a risk after wearing braces. Because thorough oral hygiene is more difficult with braces, braces wearers are more prone to these issues than non-braces wearers. People wearing orthodontics are at much higher risk of tooth decay due to the metal device on the teeth that makes it hard to clean.
This is why it’s necessary to make an appointment at Neem Tree to get regular cleanings to give your teeth a better chance of fighting any new incoming bacteria. Having an oral hygiene session will clean out the bacteria as well as the gums and the alveolar pockets that hold your teeth in place.
A hygiene session after having your braces is vital as there may be food and drink that you can’t reach stuck on the tooth surfaces. Food stuck in your teeth can cause plaque and periodontitis. As well as this, an appointment with one of our professional orthodontics will also asses whether any cavities have formed while you had your braces on.
