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.
While attending an appt with my son recently (who was being seen for an adjustment), I asked Dr. Parsons if she would look at an issue that I had with a permanent retainer. I explained to her that the orthodontist that put it in was located in Maryland and that I was unable to get there to have it looked at. Dr. Parsons took care of me (even though I was a walk in/had no appt). And after she was done, when I asked her what the charge was, she told me not to worry about it! Her generosity of time and service saved me time, money, and travel. I have been very pleased with the service my son has received from her (and her staff) as well!
