Embrace the toothbrush! You will notice that it is much harder to keep your teeth clean with braces. Food will get trapped in the brackets, underneath the wire and between your teeth. This can only be removed by brushing and flossing. If plaque remains on your teeth for an extended period of time, it may leave a permanent white scar on the surface. Brushing after meals should become part of your daily schedule.
Tendler Orthodontics is one of the few practices in South Florida that is part of the Crest / Oral-B Embrace It! Orthodontic Hygiene program. This unique program inspires patients to maintain excellent oral hygiene while in braces, and finish their treatment with great outcomes and healthy, beautiful smiles. This Pro-Health system includes:
- Oral-B Genisus Professional Exclusive power toothbrush
- Oral-B Superfloss
- Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Toothpaste
- Crest Pro-Health Complete Rinse
You will be introduced to Embrace It! the moment you start your orthodontic treatment. One of our team members will discuss the oral hygiene protocol with you to make sure you are on your way to a healthy and beautiful smile. At every appointment, your oral hygiene will be evaluated and you will receive a score. Remember that a great score will have twice the rewards: a healthy and great-looking smile and more points for your Perfect Perks!
