Burnsville Orthodontics Expert Gives Five Tips to Speed Orthodontic Treatment

October 31, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
SAVAGE, ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA The Burnsville orthodontists at Cosmopolitan Orthodontics have identified five actions patients can take to help speed their orthodontic treatment.

Burnsville, MN Orthodontist Dr. Trudy Bonvino and Orthodontist Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth, an Eagan and Burnsville orthodontics expert, created the list after being asked repeatedly by patients what they could do to promote quicker, more effective treatment.

1. See your dentist for regular cleanings.
2. Use a power toothbrush, such as a Sonicare toothbrush.
The healthier the gums are, the faster the teeth will move, said Eisenhuth, who also is a Burnsville Invisalign provider. Using a power toothbrush also means patients are less likely to exhibit decalcification.
3. Abstain from foods that can break appliances or bend wires.
Hard, chewy candies can bend or break wires and pop off brackets, resulting in teeth shifting out of alignment, stopping proper tooth movement or causing relapse, said Bonvino, who also is a Burnsville braces expert.
1. Wear your rubber bands all the time.
Bring extra packs to school so you can put them back in after eating. Keep a pack in your locker, backpack or purse, in the car and in your mom's purse. If they are always accessible, you can put them back in and wear them as often as possible, Eisenhuth said.
1. Go to your routine orthodontic checkups on time.
If you're not visiting your Burnsville orthodontists regularly at your scheduled appointments, the proper progression of your teeth alignment can stall until you make it to your next appointment for your prescribed adjustment.

"If you don't come to your appointments and the time between adjustments is not in sync with the orthodontist's recommendations, this can extend the treatment time," Bonvino said.
