Should I Still Visit My General Dentist if I’m Seeing an Orthodontist? | Summer Hill GA Orthodontist

Orthodontist in Grant Park

Ensuring optimal oral health during orthodontic treatment is crucial, which is why regular visits to your dentist are still essential, even if you’re seeing a Summer Hill GA Orthodontist at Iconic Orthodontics. Here’s why maintaining these dental appointments every six months is so important:

  1. Plaque and Tartar Removal:
    • Braces and aligners create nooks and crannies where food particles can easily get trapped, leading to plaque and tartar buildup.
    • Professional cleanings by a dental hygienist can effectively remove this buildup, preventing cavities and maintaining healthy gums.
  2. Protection Against Decalcification:
    • Acidic and sugary foods can accumulate around brackets, leading to decalcification, which causes unsightly white spots on teeth.
    • Regular fluoride treatments during dental checkups can strengthen enamel and protect teeth from decalcification.
  3. Prevention of Gum Disease:
    • Difficulty in flossing with braces increases the risk of bacteria entering gums and causing infection.
    • Dentists monitor gum health during checkups and provide guidance on preventing and reversing gum inflammation.
  4. Maintaining Orthodontic Treatment Progress:
    • Gum disease or tooth decay can prolong orthodontic treatment duration.
    • Regular dental visits help ensure treatment stays on track by addressing any oral health issues promptly.
  5. Achieving a Beautiful Smile:
    • Ultimately, the goal of orthodontic treatment is to achieve a bright, beautiful smile.
    • Proper dental care during treatment ensures optimal oral health, leading to a stunning smile once treatment is complete.
