Maintaining good oral hygiene is especially important during orthodontic treatment. As you know, Orthodontic brackets and wires can trap food and plaque, putting your patients at higher risk for tooth decay and potential gum problems. Many Colgate products are specially designed to support your patients' preventative care during their orthodontic treatment.
