Dr. Robert Agnetta is here to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted with orthodontic treatment. Not only can he improve the appearance of your smile, but he can also improve the health and function of your teeth. However, Dr. Agnetta and your braces can’t give you these pristine results on their own. We need your help! In fact, it’s best to do everything you can to clean and care for your teeth, gums and braces regularly. To help you increase your chances of having the most successful orthodontic journey possible, Dr. Agnetta encourages you to do the following things:

-Keep up with oral hygiene: To properly clean your teeth and appliances, you need to brush after every meal, floss at least once a day and rinse with mouthwash often. Oral hygiene can help you maintain clean teeth, gums and braces; reduce your chances of suffering dental issues; keep you on track toward your beautiful smile, and even help you avoid embarrassing food-filled smile moments. So, make sure to keep your oral hygiene tools with you so you can clean your teeth and braces throughout the day!

-Attend your dental checkups: Your dental checkups are very important, especially because they help you prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

-Follow instructions: It’s very important to listen to Dr. Agnetta’s instructions. When he encourages you to stay away from hard, chewy and sticky foods, do it. When he encourages you to wear rubber bands, headgear and other orthodontic accessories during treatment, do it. These things can help you have a better and more successful treatment.
