Brushing & Flossing
It is very important to keep seeing your general dentist during the orthodontic treatment for routine cleanings, examinations, and other services. It is more important than ever to brush and floss regularly when you have braces so the teeth and gums remain healthy after orthodontic care.
During orthodontic treatment, patients may require more frequent (every 3-4 month) visits to the dentist for professional cleaning. Adults who have a history of gum disease or bone loss should also see a periodontist during orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Parsons and her staff are wonderful! They are knowledgeable, kind, welcoming, honest and incredibly flexible, especially with last minute cancellations! Anxiety and nervousness are common emotions when getting braces but this staff brings a calming presence at every visit, explaining each step of the process in detail, that alleviate those feelings. They are very respectful of your time and there?s never a wait; patients are taken back immediately. My child walks out with a smile after every appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Parsons for your orthodontic needs!
