Having braces creates additional nooks and crannies where food particles and bacteria can hide. Visiting your dentist regularly will also help protect your teeth from decalcification. Decalcification is a condition in which white spots form on your tooth surfaces and decalcification is irreversible. Plaque and tartar can also form around your brackets and bands which can lead to cavities. Having your teeth professionally cleaned can help ensure that plaque and tartar are removed.
While your visits with Dr. Poser help maintain your braces, you still need to visit the dentist. You’re working hard to get that perfect smile and need to work just as hard to make sure your teeth and gums are healthy. You can still get cavities while having braces so in addition to brushing and flossing, remember to visit the dentist two times a year (6-months) to keep good oral health.
