The office of Blackhawk Orthodontics is proud of our commitment to oral hygiene! We have teamed with Oral-B and Crest to offer Ortho Essentials–a unique program designed to educate patients (and parents!) about oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment.

We understand that good oral hygiene is critical to the success of every orthodontic patient, yet can be one of the most challenging aspects of orthodontic care. By providing our patients with the right tools, we can assess what aspects of oral hygiene need to be focused on to achieve the right results!

The Ortho Essentials kit includes the Oral B Triumph power toothbrush. The Oral B brush head is designed for cleaning around braces. The Power Tip is designed to clean hard-to-reach areas between teeth and around wires and it is gentle on teeth, gums and brackets.

The kit also includes a SmartGuide wireless display to provide feedback on brushing time and technique as well as the Crest Pro-Health Toothpaste and Rinse to help reduce plaque and gingivitis.

The Ortho Essentials kit comes with an easy to follow 5-level rating system ranging from poor to excellent that illustrates each rating level so our office team and patients have a standard to compare oral hygiene. At each office visit, our team will evaluate our patients brushing by using the 5-level rating system and let you know if there is a need for concern.

With Blackhawk Orthodontics and Ortho Essentials, you will be on your way to a beautiful, healthy-looking smile even sooner!
