Trusting a Folsom, CA Orthodontist on Advice on Braces Maintenance
The emphasis on maintenance of braces is almost as important to successful orthodontic outcomes as choosing the right doctor to perform orthodontic care. Dr. Robert Kelleher, DDS, an orthodontist in Folsom, CA, believes that education on what patients should look for during treatment is pivotal to success. An Italian study, published in Progress in Orthodontics, revealed that certain ways of attaching brackets to the teeth contribute to the development of plaque deposits which can gradually compromise the cohesion of the adhesive. Coupled with an issue of infrequent maintenance, the danger of increased expenses and costs of multiple visits to reattach the braces can come into play.
