Can Orthodontist Clean Your Teeth? Why Vita Dental Spring is Best?

Maintaining oral hygiene is very important but even more important if you have orthodontic treatment. Orthodontic appliances such as braces or clear aligners are effective in correcting misaligned teeth but cleaning the teeth while wearing these appliances is even harder.

The greatest enemy of your oral health is the plaque. Plaque is often formed due to food particles that are trapped near your tooth surfaces. If you wear braces or other appliances, it can be difficult to remove plaque, which can lead to cavities, gum disease, or bad breath due to harmful acid from bacteria that will irritate the gums and erode the teeth.

Keeping plaque under control is the best way to maintain strong and healthy gums and teeth. Your regular dentist can be your best friend in this area as he or she can help you clean your teeth and reach areas that you might find difficult to clean.

If you are in the early stages of your orthodontic care and you are yet to get braces or any other appliance this is the perfect time to maximize your overall dental health. Regular cleanings from your regular dentist will help keep your teeth in excellent health. Your dentist will also note any other dental problems such as cavities or other dental issues. The cleaning of your teeth does not end when you get your braces. In fact, it is even more important to keep your teeth clean after any orthodontic treatment.

Will your orthodontist clean your teeth?

During your regular visits to your orthodontists, he will inspect the progress of your teeth alignment, comfort level, and the condition of the braces or any other dental appliance. The orthodontist does not clean your teeth. He will refer you to a regular dentist who will clean your teeth and look out for cavities and the oral health of your teeth. Your orthodontics will advise you to be seen by the regular dentists 3 to 4 times in a year for cleaning or checkup. This is more often than non-orthodontic patients because it is much more difficult to keep your teeth clean when you have appliances or wires in place.

The regular dentist will do more than just perform regular cleaning. He or she will remove plaque from your teeth and remove calculus from above and below the gum line. He will also examine the condition of your teeth, gums, and mouth. This regular cleaning and dental exams will keep your mouth healthy. General dentists and orthodontics work as a team to ensure you have the recommended oral health.
