As your orthodontist in Melbourne, there’s nothing we enjoy more than helping our patients achieve the beautiful smile they deserve. While getting your braces on means that you’re one step closer to achieving your straight smile, it also means that you’ll need to pay extra attention to your oral hygiene during your treatment.
Practicing proper oral hygiene throughout your orthodontic treatment is vital to achieving optimal results. While the areas of your teeth underneath the braces are protected, the exposed parts of your teeth are prone to risk. It is important to take extra special care of the area between your braces and your gums in order to reduce the risk of decalcification. Decalcification is the beginning stages of a cavity, which we should avoid at all costs.
At Melbourne Orthodontics we look forward to improving your smile through orthodontic treatment. Please contact the staff at your orthodontist in Melbourne today with any questions you have regarding your current or future treatment.
