White spot lesions are a direct result of not brushing well around your braces. Plaque buildup causes acid to form, which dissolves away the surface of the tooth. The white spots can be permanent in a lot of cases. To help reduce the formation of plaque, Dr Gallagher uses a new sealant around and under the brace, called "Select Defense", by E34 technologies. Even though it is a great new tool for us, I still recommend the use of Fluoride rinses during treatment, brushing carefully after every meal, and continued regular dental checkups during your Orthodontic treatment, every 3-4 months.
