The objective of orthodontic treatment is straightening of the teeth and correcting the bite.
If the health of the teeth is ignored along the way, the treatment result can be significantly compromised.
Therefore, effective brushing and flossing is one of the most critical actions needed from patients during braces.
Regular visits to the general dentist for examination and cleaning are also essential.
The results of inadequate oral hygiene include decalcification (white spots/marks), gingivitis (inflammation of the gums), and periodontal disease (inflammation leading to bone loss).
