Oral Hygiene and Toothbrushing
Your oral hygiene is vital to the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth. Orthodontic treatment is also affected by your oral hygiene habits, so it is best to implement good habits now and not later on. Our dentists at Thornton Town Center Family Dental want you to know how important your oral health is and the effects it can have on you. If you fail to properly take care of your teeth and gums, you can develop some serious conditions that may rob you of your teeth.
One of the things that you need to pay attention to is you need to clean your teeth every day. If you receive orthodontic treatment, this could not be truer. If you do not take care of your teeth and you have braces, when the braces come off, you will notice white stains on your teeth and this is due to the decalcification of the enamel and also decay of the tooth. This is permanent and cannot be erased. Our dentists cannot stress enough how important it is for you to care for your teeth.
Should you need help caring for your teeth or if you have a question about your oral hygiene, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment in our Thornton office. Our dentists will discuss oral care with you.
You MUST Brush and Floss
Brushing and flossing is important, and you must do it daily, especially when you have braces. You do not want to skip these steps, as it can lead to tooth loss, decay, and even gum disease. When you receive orthodontic treatment, your gums and teeth have already received a good bill of health. There is nothing wrong with them, but should you start to slack on the care of them, you may develop some complications.
Adults who have suffered from gum disease previously may need to see a periodontist before they can receive any type of orthodontic treatments. ALL teeth and gums need to be HEALTHY before orthodontic care can be done.
Regular checkups and cleanings are required during your orthodontic treatment and you will usually be seen every six months, but you may need to be seen more if you show patterns of improper oral hygiene.
Our dentists are here to help you monitor your overall dental hygiene and provide you with tips to help you better care for your teeth. When you come in for a checkup, your dentist will check for signs of gum disease and any signs of cavity formations on the teeth. During your appointment, specialized dental tools will be used to help us look at your teeth and identify any problems.
Thornton Town Center Family Dental expects you to make the best dental health decisions that meet your needs and budget, but we do not want you to forgo care in the process. You should never neglect your oral health as this can be detrimental to your overall oral health. Unfortunately, we need to stick to a strict policy that requires you to care for your teeth. If you receive three or more unacceptable evaluations, you may be referred to seek out additional care for your teeth or you may be released from our office as a patient.
Our dentists want you to have the prettiest smile in town and for that to happen, we need you to be on board as well. We will work together to help you reach your goals. Call Thornton Town Center Family Dental today to schedule an appointment with our Thornton dentists and orthodontists. If you have any questions or you would like to be evaluated, please call our office today.
