Fastbraces Cleaning Tips | Premier Dental Care, Idaho Falls, ID
Oral health is of paramount importance, and keeping oral appliances like Fastbraces clean is vital. At Premier Dental Care, serving Idaho Falls, Rigby, ID and the surrounding area, Dr. Tom Anderson and his team strive to help patients have healthy, functional, and beautiful smiles. Many of our Fastbraces patients are teens and it’s not uncommon for them to be less than fastidious in their oral care. In the case of Fastbraces and other orthodontic devices, cleanliness is more important than ever. The presence of oral appliances can exacerbate the regular effects of poor oral hygiene.
The side-effects of poor oral care with Fastbraces is strong mouth odor, gun inflammation, and tooth discoloration. Some even see significant discoloration around their braces, that’s evident when their Fastbraces are removed. By being proactive about oral hygiene and dental care, you can lower the chances of problems.
Tips for Oral Hygiene with Fastbraces:
Brushing and flossing twice a day is crucial. Special braces floss picks are very helpful in removing stubborn debris, as well. Most of our patients carry them in their purse or backpack to school for quick clean-up help after lunch or when they will be eating out away from their usual oral care products. Carrying a travel-sized mouth wash can also help with quick rinsing on the go until you get home and have time to be thorough with your oral hygiene routine.
