Effective March 1, 2022, the doctors of Associated Orthodontists will no longer prescribe Prevident® toothpaste for patient use in their daily oral care routine.
Patients that still have a supply of Prevident® can continue to use the product!
We have decided to discontinue the use as a convenience for patients/parents (getting prescription and refills) and the recent addition of excellent over-the-counter products mentioned below.
PATIENT DAILY ORAL CARE ROUTINE
- Brush 4 times each day — after each meal and before bed with an ADA approved fluoride toothpaste.
- Use an over-the-counter Fluoride Mouthwash made specifically for braces, or another fluoride-based mouthwash.
- Fluoride Mouthwash products such as Colgate® Ortho Defense, Crest® Braces Care or Act® Braces Care can be purchased at retail stores or online.
- This mouthwash should be used at least once each day at bedtime, or per manufacturer’s directions.
