It is important to have an easy, effective and fun oral hygiene routine. This is especially true for those of us undergoing orthodontic treatment! If you are not brushing thoroughly, food can get trapped behind the wires of your braces. Trapped food particles can lead to the formation of plaque, which can result in cavities! You can have a great routine with a standard toothbrush and floss. However, if you want to make things easier and fun, you might want to check out some of the latest oral care technology available today.

Philips Sonic Care Electric Toothbrush This toothbrush has smart brush head sensors that create a map of your mouth. You can connect your phone to your toothbrush and watch exactly which part of your smile is being cleaned! You might think you have cleaned every tooth, but it can be difficult to know for sure. With this toothbrush, you will never miss a spot!

This piece of technology cleans in between teeth using water pressure! If you have braces a Waterpik is great because the water can reach behind the metal wires and flush away food particles that floss can’t reach.

If you or a loved one has recently started orthodontic treatment, you may want to consider upgrading your at-home oral hygiene tools! Learn more about the benefits of electric toothbrushes and Waterpiks!
