3 Oral Hygiene Tools for People with Braces By Dr. Allen Garai

There are a number of products that people who wear braces can use to improve their oral hygiene. Here are some examples:

1. The interdental toothbrush: Unlike a normal toothbrush, the interdental toothbrush is designed to get between the teeth as well as under and around braces and wires.

2. Antibacterial mouthwash: This product can prevent infection and irritation that may develop from braces. It also can assist with irritation caused by canker sores and cheek bites.

3. Fluoride: This is especially crucial for people with braces, because it prevents tooth decay by killing bacteria and restoring minerals in the enamel. Fluoride can be applied directly to the teeth in gel form, or it can be used as a mouthrinse.

Common Problems Requiring Orthodontic Attention By Dr. Allen Garai

Most people associate orthodontists with braces and teeth straightening, which are major parts of any orthodontic practice. However, orthodontists also correct jaw relationship disproportion and irregularities. These are some of the more common problems:

1. Upper front teeth protrusion: This occurs when the upper teeth extend too far forward or the lower teeth do not extend forward enough. These issues can affect the appearance and function of the teeth negatively.

2. Overbite: The upper front teeth extend so far over the lower teeth that the lower teeth sometimes bite into the roof of the mouth.

3. Crossbite: When the upper teeth sit inside the bottom teeth, this can lead to misaligned jaw growth.

4. Openbite: The upper and lower front teeth do not overlap, potentially leading to the development of habits such as tongue thrusting.

5. Crowding: This is what happens when teeth do not have enough room to emerge from the gums.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome Symptoms and Treatments: Dr. Allen Garai

A private practice orthodontist in Vienna, Virginia, Dr. Allen Garai offers orthodontic and presurgical management of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Here, Dr. Garai provides an overview of the condition’s symptoms and treatments.

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is a condition in which breathing becomes blocked during sleep. Depending on the severity of the condition, airway obstruction can happen from five to 50 times an hour. Nighttime symptoms include snoring, choking sensations, insomnia, and restless sleep, while excessive and debilitating sleepiness is the primary daytime symptom.

Despite its important associations with a variety of health problems, including depression, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, OSAS remains undiagnosed in an estimated 80 percent of patients with the condition. Once diagnosed, OSAS can be treated with continuous positive airway pressure, a device that keeps the airway open during sleep, or through lifestyle changes including weight loss and smoking cessation. When surgery is required, preoperative orthodontic treatments such as those offered by Dr. Garai can lead to 95 to 100 percent positive sleep results.
