The various components of the orthodontic components installed in your mouth at Full Smile Orthodontics’s orthodontic clinic can easily create hard to reach contours around your teeth. Without a concerted effort toward maintaining good oral hygiene, bacterial deposits in these areas can cause cavities to develop.

Should this occur, the effect on your teeth and possible treatments could extend the amount of time needed to correct the alignment of your teeth.

Brushing your teeth each morning and night, as well as flossing at least once each day is very important for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. It’s also important to attend your routine dental checkups at Dr. Daniel Adams’s clinic to have your teeth cleaned, as well as to detect any early developing oral health problems.

The dental exam is designed to remove plaque buildup and tartar from your teeth while also monitoring the overall health of your mouth. If Dr. Daniel Adams finds an area of concern, he can address it before it can affect your braces.

If you live in the Carlsbad, California, area and you need help maintaining a healthy mouth with braces, you can always call 760.804.0080 to schedule an appointment with an orthodontist at Full Smile Orthodontics.
