Dr. Stacie Fenderson knows that good oral hygiene is critical to the success of every orthodontic patient and can be one of the most challenging aspects of orthodontic care.
That's why we've partnered with Crest and Oral B to offer a comprehensive oral hygiene education and grading system through our Ortho Essentials program.
Oral Essentials is a three-step program designed to boost oral health and hygiene
practices in orthodontic patients. The day our patients get their braces on, our team will go over the importance of what foods to avoid, proper handling of emergencies, and proper oral hygiene techniques.
In order to help with proper hygiene, our patients getting full braces will receive the Ortho Essentials kit and be started in our Ortho Essentials oral hygiene program.
Comprehensive Treatment with Metal Braces includes:
• Oral B Professonal Care SmartSeries 5000 Electric Toothbrush with Bluetooth connectivity to Oral B's smart phone app, plus Oral B Ortho and Oral-B Power Tip brush heads.
• Crest Pro-Health Clinical Gum Protection Toothpaste.
• Crest Pro-Health Complete Rinse
• Oral B Super Floss
The Ortho Essentials kit comes with an easy to follow 5-level rating system ranging from poor to excellent that illustrates each rating level so our office team and patients have a standard to compare oral hygiene.
At each office visit, our team will rate our patients brushing by using the 5-level rating system and fill out a report card for the patient to bring home.
