Words of Wisdom No. 7 – Stay fresh

When you were a child, your mother wisely told you to have fresh breath when out in public, and it is good idea to continue following this advice. One of the best ways to maintain your oral hygiene is by visiting an orthodontist for a complete examination. Removing food particles and a buildup of plaque from crooked teeth is not easy, but if you undergo orthodontic treatment to repair malocclusions, then brushing and flossing your teeth is easier. If you are a mother, then you probably remember to bring a child to an orthodontic facility for treatment. However, it is also possible for you to wear braces or Invisalign aligners to have a more beautiful smile.

Orthodontic Treatment makes it Easier to Brush and Floss

You may have noticed that brushing and flossing your own teeth is becoming more difficult because your teeth are shifting. When your teeth are pushed too close together or overlapping, it is nearly impossible to remove food debris. Of course, having food stuck between your teeth leads to halitosis and the possibility of decay. An orthodontist can determine if you have mild, moderate or severe misalignments in order to recommend Invisalign aligners or traditional braces.
