Dr. John A Dorsch has come up with tips you can utilize during the summer season to keep your teeth in tip-top shape.

Visit Your Local Orthodontist

If you are wearing braces or aligners, make sure to make an appointment with your local orthodontist for a routine check-up. The orthodontist needs to see your progress, and for them to make sure your treatment plan is on track. Your orthodontist will also be able to recommend specific cleaning tips to keep your teeth healthy and clean.

Start Your Orthodontic Treatment

  • Your ability to chew food.
  • Alleviate any speech impairment.
  • Make it easier for you to brush, clean, and floss.
  • Reduce grinding and chipping.
  • Reduce periodontal disease and cavities.
  • Reduce the risk of injury from protruding teeth.
