Novi MI Dentist offers Braces to help you achieve perfect smile
Braces aren’t just about making your teeth look pretty. As important as appearance can be, the benefit of it goes beyond just esthetics. It's important to take care of your oral health and hygiene seriously. These are the essentials necessary to maintain good dental health while on braces with the help of our Novi dentist, Dr. Tariq.
• Interdental Brush
The brackets and wires in the braces have many hard-to-reach areas that trap food particles and plaque. This means the risk of having tooth decay is higher while wearing it. The nifty circular brush with elongated bristles is effective in getting in those tight spots.
• Floss Threader
This effectively removes tough plaque between teeth and just below the gum line. It allows the user to easily slip the floss behind the arch wire and get it between the teeth. This takes a little getting used to, but once mastered it, it's just like brushing your teeth.
• Water Flosser
These are great for braces because regular floss often gets caught on braces and miss certain areas. This pressurized water flosser gets to hard-to-reach nooks and crannies of the teeth and braces. It's an expensive option and rather bulky, so it's preferable to it use at home.
• Travel-Sized Dental Care Products
As a patient adjusts to a new life with braces, it's important to have some handy items that help to make the transition easy and the time spent in braces a pleasant experience. There are a lot of available dental care products in small sizes in the market. Keep these goods in your personal bag and carry it with you when you go out, especially when dining.
• Salt Water Rinse
In wearing braces, a patient might feel slight pain and swelling of the gums. Salt water solutions are great in alleviating these pains. It's affordable alternative for expensive mouth solutions in the market. You can bring it anywhere with you, too.
