While Dr. Rudman utilizes his experience and state-of-the-art technology to correctly affix your braces and conduct your ongoing orthodontic treatment, the task of maintaining a healthy and effective daily oral hygiene routine is up to you.

Good oral hygiene is important for everyone, but especially for those with braces. Although braces do not directly cause oral hygiene problems, the bands and brackets can attract plaque and food debris and require a diligent commitment to regular home cleanings.

Some things that can help you keep your teeth and braces clean, include:

  • Specially designed products: You can but brushes and products that are designed specifically to help teeth with braces.
     
  • Foods: Your diet affects both your braces and your oral health. Steer clear of sticky, sugary, or acidic foods that can harm your tooth’s enamel.
     
  • Dental appointments: Everyone should see their dentist on a regular basis, but if you have braces, you may need to visit your dentist more regularly. This allows a close monitoring of your treatment, but can also help identify emerging dental problems that need to be addressed.

Braces offer many advantages, but they require consistent care. If you live in Denver and need a dentist you can trust to look after your braces, contact Advanced Orthodontic Care today online or at 303-331-0222 to schedule an appointment.
