Having good oral hygiene in braces is difficult, even for patients with great hygiene habits. I struggled with it myself as a teenager, with the bands, brackets, and wires, the task of flossing seemed impossible that I would just want to give up. It is easy to get frustrated because oral hygiene becomes more important than ever during ortho treatment, but also becomes more complex for patients.
Poor oral hygiene is very common with orthodontic treatment, and often times braces are removed because the mouth looks like this:
By providing patients a simple tool like OraCare during ortho, patients can turn their oral health towards the better. The patient in the above photo used OraCare for 5 weeks, twice a day. She was coming back to have a cleaning after her braces were removed. These were her results when she returned, just by adding OraCare into her regimen:
Because of results like these, orthodontists across the nation are recommending OraCare to their patients. Activated chlorine dioxide's ability to kill bacteria and destroy biofilm makes it an ideal choice for patients struggling with caring for their mouth.
