Visiting the orthodontist is great for maximizing the health of your teeth. Getting braces and maintaining healthy dental practices go a long way, especially as a child. However, orthodontic treatment goes past visiting the orthodontist’s office for your routine appointments. It is important to carry over your good orthodontic habits to your home as well.
In this video, you will learn how you can continue your treatment while away from the orthodontist’s office.
Brushing your teeth while wearing braces is extremely important. It may seem obvious, but not getting rid of food remnants behind your braces can bring avoidable problems. There is a certain way to properly brush as well. By moving the toothbrush in a circular motion, it covers more surface area. You should apply just enough pressure so that the tips of the bristles are able to reach the wires. Keep watching to see how you can continue your orthodontic treatment at home.
