A smile is one of the first things people notice. Make yours stunning with help from Dr. Suzanne Stock and the rest of her staff. Our team of experienced professionals shares the same common goal: to help you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. We provide tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your orthodontic treatment, and our friendly staff is here to answer any questions you have about Invisalign, braces and other treatment options.

The Importance of Oral Hygiene

Proper oral hygiene is one of the best defenses you have against gum disease, tooth decay and perhaps the worst culprit of them all: bad breath. While you are undergoing orthodontic care from Dr. Stock, it’s more important than ever before that you practice good oral hygiene habits. Here are a few tips to ensure your teeth and gums remain as healthy as possible:

  • Brush
    Ensure you brush all of your teeth, gums, tongue, and any removable orthodontic appliances, preferably after each meal.
  • Floss
    Floss every day and be sure to go through and around hardware in your mouth.
  • Interdental Toothbrush
    While you undergo orthodontic care, utilize an interdental toothbrush to clean under wires and around braces.
  • Rinse
    Rinse with water or an antiseptic dental rinse every time you brush.
