Thank you very much for taking the time to look at Elliot's case. We were impressed with your office and staff. You're certainly on the right track. As Elliot said "that guy really knows his stuff!"

ProSeal

At Martinez Orthodontics, some of the biggest hurdles our patients face during treatment is keeping their teeth clean. Although our metal braces are now smaller and easier to clean, the overall health of the teeth are at risk while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Dr. Martinez utilizes ProSeal, to preserve and protect his patient’s teeth while wearing braces, going above and beyond what many orthodontists in Cincinnati and Mack, OH do in their office.

Learn more about ProSeal and how it protects the teeth during treatment, and feel free to ask Dr. Martinez any additional questions before you get your braces on.

ProSeal: A Coat of Armor For Your Enamel

ProSeal is a state-of-the-art protective sealant with “armor-like” strength, that Dr. Martinez willl coat over your teeth before he places your braces. Because many of our younger patients struggle with brushing and flossing during treatment, ProSeal can help significantly reduce the potential for teeth staining and cavities, that tend to arise during treatment. It’s still more important than ever to care for your teeth during treatment by brushing at least twice a day and using floss or threaders at least once a day.

In a 2005 study by Hu and Featherstone published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, this sealant was shown to significantly reduce tooth enamel damage more than fluoride treatment alone. Dr. Martinez also wants to set his patients up for long-term oral health, so the decision to use ProSeal was a no-brainer!

Although ProSeal can help protect your teeth, oral hygiene remains one of the most important habits to maintain. Visit our Oral Hygiene page to learn more about the best tools to keep your teeth looking their best during treatment.
