Oral Hygiene

Maintaining a proper oral hygiene regimen is essential when you have braces. That is why Aurora Orthodontics & TMJ has teamed up with Oral-B and Crest to take part in the OrthoEssentials program. This program consists of Oral-B and Crest products, along with oral health educational resources.

OrthoEssentials helps prevent common problems such as plaque and gingivitis, which can make orthodontic treatment longer and more expensive, so you can obtain the healthiest and best smile possible.

The OrthoEssentials System

We offer the OrthoEssentials system to all our new patients that start full orthodontic treatment as a valuable and integral part of their treatment. We also highly recommend this system to our existing patients. The package is a great value and includes:

  • Oral-B Genius Professional Exclusive with Position Detection: This powered toothbrush features position detection, so you don’t miss any areas while brushing. While brushing you can use the Oral-B app to get immediate feedback to help improve your technique.
  • Oral-B Brush Heads: Oral-B brush heads are designed to thoroughly clean orthodontic appliances and the surface of each tooth. The Interproximal Clean brush head is designed to effectively clean around appliances, in areas that are difficult to reach.
  • Oral-B Superfloss: This floss has unique features that are perfect for removing plaque in areas that a toothbrush can’t reach. It has stiff-end threaders to help you floss under your braces. The soft, spongy material efficiently cleans large interproximal areas.
  • Crest Pro-Health Advanced Toothpaste: This toothpaste protects tooth enamel, prevents cavities, and freshens your breath.
  • Crest Pro-Health Advanced Mouthwash: This mouthwash prevents tartar and keeps your teeth healthy throughout orthodontic treatment.
