Oral Hygiene & Maintenance

Oral hygiene is extremely important during your orthodontic treatment with Sensational Smiles. This is because it is easy for food and debris to become trapped, allowing plaque to build up, causing decay and gum problems. Your Sensational Smiles team will be happy to demonstrate cleaning techniques and advise you on any special requirements for your situation.

You should clean your teeth after every meal, systematically around each tooth, using a fluoride toothpaste and a soft toothbrush.  An electric toothbrush is a highly efficient and gentle way to clean teeth with braces.  In addition, an interdental bottlebrush can help remove debris and plaque from under the wires.

Regular six monthly dental examinations with your general dentist are recommended during the course of your orthodontic treatment.

Ask about your individual oral hygiene requirements today by speaking to one of our Sensational Smiles team at either of our Footscray, Traralgon practices or call us on (03) 9318 1099.
