Tools for Oral Health Success from Colalillo Orthodontics

We have found that providing education and the necessary supplies is the most effective approach for maintaining oral hygiene during the course of orthodontic treatment.

Dr. Colalillo has designed our program to improve oral hygiene during the course of orthodontic treatment and reduce the incidence of tooth decay, decalcification, and periodontal disease. We have found the most effective course of action is to provide education to the patient and guardian at the start of treatment, assessing oral hygiene at the start of every visit and providing additional instruction during the course of treatment as needed.  We  provide every Phase II patient (Full Braces) all the supplies needed to effectively care for and protect their braces and teeth.

Our patient focused policy initially provides a complete home care package including:

  • Sonicare electric toothbrush
  • Manual and travel toothbrushes
  • Fluoride toothpaste
  • Proxy brushes
  • Fluoride gel
  • EEZ-Thru floss threaders
  • Wax
  • Protective mouth guards (for patients that play sports)

All supplies are replenished (excluding the sonicare toothbrush) as needed throughout active treatment.
