WAYS PATIENTS CAN HELP THEMSELVES TO PREVENT PROBLEMS To o t h b r u s h e s a n d b r u s h i n g It does not really matter whether patients use a manual or an electric brush; it is what they do with it while it is in their mouths that counts. However, a brush with a small head is very helpful and some electric brushes now have small heads especially designed for orthodontic use. Patients need to have a routine, a sequence of brushing so that every part of the mouth gets cleaned and nothing gets overlooked.
No appliance can be self-cleansing and trapped food debris can irritate the soft tissues of the mouth and they can become inflamed. FOR FIXED APPLIANCES Fixed appliances are not the easiest to keep clean, but the consequences of not doing so are permanently marked or decayed teeth. Straight but marked teeth is not a good look. Try and impress on patients that these are their teeth they are damaging. It is their responsibility! Besides regular tooth brushing, and flossing if possible, the orthodontic patient has to be extra careful with: • • • • • hard, sticky or crunchy foods sweets or crisps between meals fizzy or cola drinks chewing gum fresh fruit juice (especially if drunk between meals) The problems and consequences are as follows: • Sucking sweets, such as mints and toffees, leads to cervical decalcification • Eating hard, sticky or crunchy foods damages brackets, clasps and archwires • Fresh fruit juice, diet and ‘cola’ type drinks are acidic, attacking the enamel on the tooth surface, making the tooth surface glass-like, especially if ‘swished’ around teeth.
These usually follow: • a set position of each view required both intra- and extra-orally • the same camera and background • the same angles so that there is standardisation of all the images taken. Some clinicians have access to a photographer, some take the photographs themselves and many nurses are excellent photographers. RISKS OF ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT When assessing treatment options and the benefits that treatment will bring, the orthodontist also advises the patient and parent of any possible risks that might occur.
