Do you wish you could have a fresh and pristine breath while you align your smile with braces? If so, our orthodontist, Dr. Claudia Torok, has some good news for you: There are things you can do to achieve that breath you desire! To help you achieve those goals, our orthodontic team is happy to give you the tips you need.

The first thing you need to do is keep up on oral hygiene. This means you need to brush and floss every morning and night as well as after each meal and snack. After you brush, scrub your tongue. For even better results, swish your mouth with mouthwash regularly.

The second thing you need to do is attend your regular dental cleaning and exam appointments. This is important because the treatments provided can help you deep clean your smile as well as help you prevent gum disease, which is a dental issue that has persistent bad breath as a major symptom.

If you have any questions or if you would like to know more about how to have a fresh breath when you have braces in Los Angeles, California, please reach out to Dr. Claudia Torok DDS MS at 310-670-5686 and talk to a member of our dental team. We look forward to helping you!
