Importance Of Taking Care Of Your Dental Health During Orthodontic Treatment

Posted on 7/10/2023 by Todd Jorgenson
Importance Of Taking Care Of Your Dental Health During Orthodontic TreatmentOrthodontic treatment is an option used by dentists to address issues of tooth misalignment. To straighten the teeth, doctors use different dental appliances such as braces to significantly improve all bite functions in the mouth.

Averting The Onset Of Cavities


Braces have brackets and wires that make it easy for food debris to get trapped. Besides food getting trapped, it is also difficult to clean your teeth when you have braces. This necessitates the need to ensure that you maintain top-notch dental hygiene to prevent plaque buildup. For the hard-to-reach areas that brushing cannot get to, doctors recommend the use of a water flosser. On top of the usual home dental cleaning practices, it is also vital to have regular checkups and cleaning from a doctor. If plaque is allowed to build up, it will not only cause tooth decay but can also progress to tooth loss if not treated.

Guarding Against Complications


Poor oral hygiene can cause tooth decay which will inadvertently cause interferences with your orthodontic treatment. Cavities and other conditions such as gum diseases could either slow down the treatment or halt it altogether. Not only will you have to extend the treatment period but also have more hospital visits. Another case complication is where teeth shift back to their original positions due to poor oral hygiene.

Circumventing Enamel Erosion


Braces often cause friction on the tooth enamel. This constant friction can cause enamel erosion and demineralization. With regular checkups and cleaning the doctor can access how much erosion is taking place and advice on the way forward. Besides the brace's friction, not being able to clean areas around the braces may cause an accumulation of acid after the breakdown of sugary foods and other leftover debris. The acid eats away the enamel and thus exposes the teeth to bacterial and viral attacks. Contact us today so that we can help you learn more about how to maintain the health of your teeth.
