In the process of orthodontic treatment, pay attention to two problems.
Periodontitis is one of the concerns for patients.
Plaque control is the most effective solution, and it is mainly carried out daily with careful brushing morning and evening.
However, the uneven arrangement of teeth and the existence of appliances, it has brought certain difficulties to oral cleaning. Therefore, some parts that are not easy to clean (such as the occluded tooth surface below the archwire) can be cleaned with an interdental brush. After brushing, look in the mirror to see if there is any dirt on your teeth and appliances; when brushing, use fluoride toothpaste.
Mouthwash has a certain inhibitory effect on bacteria in the mouth. In orthodontic treatment, when self-cleaning is difficult, mouthwash can be used for a short time to prevent the generation of plaque or to remove plaque.
In addition, some people worry that the teeth will become loose and even fall out.
It is normal for the teeth to be slightly loose during the process of orthodontic treatment. This has to do with the structure of the mouth. After the orthodontic treatment is completed, after a period of keep, the teeth will become as strong as before.
If the teeth are too loose during the orthodontic treatment, there may be other problems. You should seek treatment from a dentist as soon as possible or even stop the orthodontic treatment.
