Caring For Your Smile During Orthodontic Treatment

orthodontic treatment for the whole family

Straightening your teeth can have a world of benefits. It can give you more confidence in your smile, make it easier to keep your teeth clean, and improve the alignment of your front and back teeth so that chewing is easier. However, since orthodontic treatment often takes over a year, it is important to know how to care for your smile during that time.

Maintain Good Dental Hygiene

Maintaining your oral hygiene regimen is even more important now that you have braces. Brush your teeth twice a day using a fluoride-containing toothpaste, and floss at least once a day. To make flossing in between your wires and brackets easier, ask us for a sample of the Platypus orthodontic flosser or a floss threader. Use a mouthwash daily to kill germs.

Be sure to see your general dentist 2x a year for your cleaning and checkups.

Read our blog on 5 Steps to Brushing.

Eat a Mouth-Healthy Diet

Limit sweets and sugar-sweetened beverages, such as soft drinks, fruit drinks and sport drinks, to avoid having sugar on your teeth and increasing your risk of tooth decay. You'll also need to avoid certain foods because they are too gummy, hard, or likely to get stuck in or damage your braces.

Orthodontic treatment or not, eating sticky, sugary foods is never healthy because they increase your risk of developing tooth decay. Instead, opt for nutritious choices such as fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and lean proteins.

Orthodontic treatment will give you a better smile and the benefits that come with it. Make sure you take full advantage of your treatment by keeping your mouth clean so that your smile is white and healthy when your braces come off!

Education

What is the doctor’s educational background? What kind of continuing education or specialty does the doctor have? Are they a licensed member of the American Association of Orthodontists?

Dr. John Lupini D.D.S.,MS graduated in 1994 from the University of Michigan, graduating first in his dental school class. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists, Michigan Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and the Detroit District Dental Society.

He maintains high-quality orthodontics through continuing-education courses as well as staying current on the latest orthodontic research, technology, and treatment options such as tooth-colored braces (white braces), clear braces/invisible braces, clear aligners/invisible aligners, clear retainers, and orthodontic expander options.

Dr. Lupini  has a history of providing orthodontics for special needs children. He is aware of the unique requirements these patients require and how to cater to them. This means that during your consultation and treatment, everything will be much easier and more comfortable for you and your child. To learn more about choosing the right orthodontist for children with special needs read our blog on just that.

How to Find the Right Orthodontists For Kids With Special Needs.

Experience

How long has the doctor been treating patients? How experienced are they with treatment like yours? Who will be overseeing your treatment: the doctor or assistant? Do they have Google and or Facebook reviews? And if so how are they?

With over 20 years of experience Dr. Lupini has treated thousands of patients. Treating the most complex cases. Making him a leader in orthodontics. 

Dr. Lupini takes a very hands-on approach. He strategically places every orthodontic bracket and band himself based on his experience and thoughtful planning. Bracket and band placement is the most important aspect of treatment. This should always been done by your orthodontist. Not an assistant.

Here at True Orthodontics our patients have spoken for our work. We have a 5 star rating on Google, Facebook and Yelp.  Here are a few reviews our patients have left...

Dr. Lupini and the entire staff at True Orthodontics are wonderful, all three of my kids have had braces and all three were lucky enough to see Dr. Lupini in Wyandotte. Would highly recommend!!!!!!

 

Location

How convenient is the office? Is the office located near your work, school or home? Does the office have multiple locations? If they do are those other offices convenient for you in the case of an emergency?

I cannot express how important location is. You or your child will be seeing the orthodontist, at the minimum, once a month. So you want to choose an office that is most convenient to your needs. You also need to consider any satellite offices the doctor has. Emergencies don’t always happen when the doctor is at the location you have chosen. Choosing a doctor who has multiple locations means you might have to travel to their other offices.
