Orthodontic Tools that Should Be in Your Dental Kit


Every day, you make sure you have high-quality orthodontic tools in order to do your job. Your orthodontic instruments include scalers, mirrors, wire-bending pliers and more. These items are vitally important to help ensure your patients have healthy teeth and gums.

You may be fully equipped, but are your orthodontic patients? Do they have the tools they need to care for their braces after they leave your office?


Braces are no longer limited to adolescents, and more adults are having orthodontic procedures. In fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), an estimated 27 percent of all orthodontic patients are adults…and they are aware of the benefits of a strong, straight and confident smile.

Roughly 92 percent of them would suggest orthodontic treatment for others, and 75 percent reported improvement in their personal and professional lives as a result of their procedures. This means you can expect to see more and more orthodontic patients in your practice, and a large percentage of them will be adults.

While clear align trays such as Invisalign ® are an option, many patients require the traditional metal braces that require a higher level of maintenance. When patients of all ages are investing so much time and money into treatment, it only makes sense to be sure they have the best items at their disposal. Therefore, having a comprehensive ortho kit is more important than ever.
