White spot lesions are permanent damage to the surface enamel of your teeth. They form despite proper brushing and flossing in patients fitted with oral braces.
Braces are hard to clean.
1. Bacteria form tartar around brace brackets.
2. Tartar degrades surface enamel.
3. Braces are removed and tartar cleaned.
It's challenging for patients to fight
the bacteria that cause white spot lesions.
