Now that you have braces you’re probably thinking dental visits are not necessary since you’re seeing Dr. Babaeian for orthodontic treatment.

Here are 3 reasons why it’s important to keep up with your regular dental visits in addition to coming in for orhtodontic treatment.

 

1. Removing plaque and tartar.



Having braces provides more places for food and bacteria to hide. Eventually, plaque and tartar can form around your brackets, bands or other orthodontic appliances which can lead to cavities. Having your teeth regularly cleaned by your dentist can help ensure most, if not all, plaque and tartar is removed. Even if you are undergoing clear aligner treatment (Invisalign) dental checkups and cleanings are equally as important.

 

2. Protecting your teeth from decalcification, or the loss of calcium in your teeth.
