Special Situations - VITIS Orthodontic access
Oral hygiene is very important during orthodontic treatment since not only do appliances make cleaning more difficult but they also favour dental biofilm and food debris build-up.
For optimum oral hygiene in orthodontic wearers, it is important to choose the correct toothbrush, specifically designed for people with fixed orthodontic appliances.
- Daily use toothbrush
- Small brush head that makes access to hard-to-reach areas easy (backmost parts of the mouth, especially teeth that are in the process of erupting, dental malposition, etc.).
- Soft and medium strength filaments, V-shaped brushing surface that allows for double cleaning action: orthodontic appliances and gums.
- Pliable handle can be bent to the position that best suits each oral cavity, increasing brushing accessibility.
- Ergonomic handle with anti-slip grooves makes brushing easier.
- Protective cap keeps filaments grouped together and in optimum hygienic conditions.
- 6 Colours: transparent, green, blue, red, yellow and purple.

- It is important to replace your toothbrush every 3 months. A toothbrush in poor conditions not only does not clean properly but can also cause oral lesions.
- A toothbrush can only clean one or two teeth at a time. Change the position of your toothbrush frequently.
- Proper toothbrushing, just like dental flossing and interproximal brush use, takes practice.
- Aside from brushing teeth after every meal, it is also essential to brush and floss thoroughly at least once per day. The best time is right before going to bed in order to keep the biofilm that has formed under control.
- Slight gingival bleeding is normal during the first days of using a toothbrush, dental floss or tape or interproximal brush. However, if you experience repeated discomfort or bleeding when brushing, consult your dentist.
