Dr. DiCiccio and his team want to know... Are you properly brushing and flossing daily during your treatment?
If the answer is yes, that’s great! But, don’t forget that it is also extremely important for you to visit your general dentist at least every 6 months in addition to brushing your teeth, flossing and coming to your regular visits in our office for your orthodontic adjustments. Regular dental checkups are important for maintaining good oral health, especially during orthodontic treatment!
Why is October a great month to visit your dentist??? Well, not only is it National Orthodontic Health Month, but it is also National Dental Hygiene Month.
Your general dentist will be checking for problems that might not be seen or felt, detect cavities and early signs of decay, treat oral health problems early and encourage you to properly brush and floss your teeth. Your general dentist is part of the team that is going to help you achieve that amazing smile you are working so hard for.
Don't ignore this important piece of the puzzle!!!
