Regular dental cleanings are crucial during your orthodontic treatment. Many individuals with braces or Invisalign believe they do not require an appointment for teeth cleaning with their orthodontists because they may already see them frequently. The orthodontist may not always be cleaning your teeth, though, as the main goal of these appointments is usually to straighten your teeth.
Orthodontists are dentists by training, yet they offer various services. Dental hygienists thoroughly clean your teeth and examine them for periodontal disease, gingivitis, and cavities. Before you have brackets and attachments on your teeth, it will be simpler for your dentist to address these kinds of problems. Our goal at Kettering Dental & Implant Clinic is to assist people in achieving a stunning & healthy smile. This is why we advise patients to visit us before beginning Invisalign or braces treatment.
Plaque build-up on the teeth can make the brackets on your braces much more likely to come loose. They prefer a spotless, smooth surface to adhere to! In the long run, having healthy teeth before beginning orthodontic treatment will lead to fewer problems and provide patients with a better outcome.
Cleaning around the brackets and attachments can be challenging, particularly when wearing braces. To stop plaque build-up and tooth decay, dental hygienists are trained to access these difficult-to-reach places. This is why it’s crucial to schedule dental cleanings throughout orthodontic treatment.
Visiting your dentist throughout your orthodontic treatment will also help to prevent decalcification, otherwise referred to as “decal.” Where the brackets once were, white marks known as decalcification can be seen on the teeth. Poor brushing and excessive drinking of acidic and sugary drinks are to blame for this. This is why it’s crucial to visit the dentist for deep cleanings while undergoing orthodontic treatment.
