Empowering Patients to Succeed

Our doctors and team are concerned about patient care, patient involvement and oral hygiene. That is why we recently redesigned our in-house OrthoCare program with a new methodology of hygiene instruction using the latest products.

We adopted the Oral Health Solutions program developed by Crest® and Oral-B®. It is a program specially designed by orthodontists for orthodontists and their patients.

Each of our patients commencing a treatment with full braces will receive, as part of our Luks OrthoCare program, the following products:

  • Oral-B® Professional Care SmartSeries 5000 (Orthodontic Model)

This is the first power toothbrush with a wireless remote to provide feedback to proper brushing habits. It improves brushing habits by reducing aggressive pressure, improving thoroughness, and increasing duration.

  • Crest® PRO-HEALTH Toothpaste
  • Crest® PRO-HEALTH Rinse

Recent studies demonstrate that after two weeks, orthodontic patients who used an Ortho Health Solutions Regimen - the Oral-B® SmartSeries Ortho unit with Crest® PRO-HEALTH toothpaste and rinse - had up to 40% LESS PLAQUE than if they has used a regular manual toothbrush and regular anti-cavity toothpaste.

The Luks OrthoCare program empowers patients to take charge of their own oral hygiene. Patients are educated to assess their own oral hygiene using simple grading cards. The patient learns how to match the appearance of his/her teeth and gums to one of the photographs on the card to determine their score. This grading occurs chair-side at each appointment and is encouraged to be routinely completed at home.
