Oral Hygiene Advice

Brushing should be done every morning and night, and after each meal using only a soft (or very modest) toothbrush.

During brushing you should be sure to direct toothbrush threads up and down the orthodontic brackets.

The gums should be brushed by placing the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and pressing with small circular movements, counting 5 seconds for each area.

Check in the mirror if there is any food residues after brushing and repeat the procedure in the area. For this reason, it is advisable not to use toothpaste at least once a day.

Its vital to use dental floss at least once every 2 days. Attention: do not push the gums but oblique to the tooth, as there is a risk of gum injury and exudation.

Remember: The appearance of gum bleeding during brushing indicates the presence of inflammation-gingivitis in this area and requires more care rather than avoiding brushing in this area.

Where we are

  • Kleopatra - Xenia Kyparissidou, Vrilissia
    "I decided at an older age ( 41 years old) to start orthodontic treatment , when realized that I was avoiding looking at my teeth on the mirror. My case was quite difficult, cause my teeth were extremely crowded and affected by periodontitis, and I was extremely scared of visiting the orthodontist. I will never forget Dr. Tzamalas' first words on the phone " The most important thing is to pass through the surgery's door".   And indeed, I passed through that door and everything happened quickly and pleasantly. " In a year's time you will get straight teeth without any extractions". And exactly after a year my smile was completely transformed. Most importantly throughout the treatment Dr. Tzamalas was available at all times for any questions I had or any urgent adjustments needed to be done,  and all that in a brand modern and super clean practice. Kosta I can not thank you enough!!!"

    "I feel great with my new smile. I had gaps among my teeth and my jaws did not close properly. My therapy plan included mobile mechanisms and then invisible braces. My whole treatment was much shorter than I expected. Everyone at Athens Orthodontics practice was really friendly while Dr. Tzamalas was always there to answer any question I had. I have already recommended my orthodontist to my friends and relatives. Thank you all at Athens Orthodontics for my perfect smile!"
  • Christina Kasimatis, 31 years old, Vrilissia
    "Before I visit the Orthodontist, I was really hesitant at wearing braces especially due to my age and mainly for aesthetic reasons. The time, though, I visited Dr Tzamalas and talked about it, I was really happy to find out that he is an excellent professional and an exceptional person. I finally got the right decision. The whole process was painless and the time passed by really quickly. At the end, I have a great and healthy denture. Thank you Dr. Tzamalas for giving me this great smile! "
