If you’re brushing your teeth three times per day and maintaining your daily flossing routine during your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Varghese and our team think that is AMAZING and to keep up the great work! Keep in mind that it’s just as important for you to visit your general dentist (DDS) every six months, or as recommended, in addition to daily brushing and flossing.
Remember: Don't forget to keep your regular visits with us too to keep your treatment on track and on time ☺
Dental check-ups are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. Your general dentist can check for problems that might not be seen or felt, detect cavities and early signs of tooth decay, as well as catch and treat oral health problems early. During an oral exam, your dentist examines the overall health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. Check-ups will also include a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing by a Dental Hygienist (RDH).
At Varghese Orthodontics we monitor our patients' oral hygiene and let our patients know if more brushing and flossing is needed! Daily brushing and flossing is so important to keep your orthodontic treatment on track and on time ☺
If you have not been to the dentist in the last six months, please let us know during your next adjustment visit, as we can provide a few great references in the North Aurora and Huntley areas!
If you have changed your general dentist (DDS) since your last visit, please talk to Gigi, Jenn or Lindsey so we can update your information. Dr. Varghese keeps dentists updated on our patients' progress throughout treatment.
