Oral Hygiene








HOW TO CARE FOR YOURSELF


Patients wearing braces need to be ever vigilant when it comes to keeping their braces, teeth and gums clean. By following Dr. Frost’s instructions on oral hygiene and avoiding certain foods, you can maintain healthy teeth and a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime. Dr. Frost recommends brushing at least three times a day as well as regular follow-up care with your general dentist. Our office provides our patients with orthodontic toothbrushes and any needed dental hygiene devices.

Caring for Your Retainer

Retainers, just like your teeth collect plaque, bacteria and food particles. You should clean your retainer everyday! Use a mouthwash rinse or denture cleaning agent to freshen it up and keep it free of bacteria.

Foods to Avoid

Patients should avoid foods that are sticky, hard or chewy. They should also avoid any food and drinks that are known to cause cavities. Foods that are known to cause breakage of orthodontic appliances include gum, hard candy, nuts, whole apples, caramel, popcorn and candy bars.
