Excellent oral hygiene is always important but while you have braces, it’s even more important! Please take a moment to watch this video demonstrating how to brush and floss with braces.
Our goal is for your smile to be as beautiful as possible when your treatment is finished and your braces come off. To help keep you focused on cleaning your teeth thoroughly, we will give you a “grade” at each visit:
A = Excellent
B = Good, missing a few areas
C = Plaque and swollen gums
D = Very poor, high risk of permanent stains (decalcification)
F = Extremely poor, decalcification present
Be sure to see your regular dentist for routine exams and cleaning too.
We look forward to working with you on great grades (“straight A’s!”), which also earn you some fun rewards.
