When in orthodontic treatment your oral hygiene is something you want to stay on top of. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you succeed great oral hygiene.
- Brush after every meal
- Maintain a 45 degree angle with your toothbrush. It’s important to brush each tooth at the gum line and both above and below the bracket
- Brush the chewing surfaces of your teeth along with the inner surfaces closest to your tongue
- Don't forget to floss!!!
And of course if you have any questions, Dr.Kennell and the team here at Kennell Orthodontics are just a call away!
Important reminder now that its back to school time.
We recommend patients in orthodontic treatment to brush after every meal. If you're unable to brush after lunch at school it's okay! Just remember to do so when you get home, then again after eating dinner!
We hope you all had an amazing summer!

As much as we love Summer, we know the beginning of August is a reminder in a few short weeks, Back to School activities will be in full swing! Kennell Orthodontics wants to send your children back to school prepared for school life with braces or new orthodontic treatments. Pack your child their very own "Back to School with Braces" kit - something as simple as a ziplock plastic bag including items such as: Orthopicks, orthodontic rubber bands, mini toothbrush and toothpaste, orthodontic wax, small mirror, floss, retainer case and tissues. This kit can easily be tucked into their backpack or locker and will help as a reminder of orthodontic care even when at school. Start the school year off right with these reminders:
- Bring retainer cases to lunch room and keep retainer in it to avoid accidentally throwing it away with lunch trash.
- Always wear protective mouth guard for all fall sports - this will help prevent brackets from breaking and inner lip from rubbing against braces.
Stay ahead of the Back to School shopping rush by preparing these orthodontic kits now
The Kennell Ortho team would also like to invite you to our end of summer Patient Appreciation night!
When: Friday August 26th
Where: Smitty's Cinema Tilton NH 5pm-8pm
Just RSVP on our Facebook page! We will have food and prizes!
Kick back and enjoy the last weeks of summer!!
