Why do orthodontic patients require specialist products?
During orthodontic treatment patients find it considerably more challenging to control dental bio-film (plaque) and as a consequence are at a high risk from; tooth decay, enamel demineralisation, gum disease and bad breath. Additionally, due to the rubbing of the brace, ulcerations and small lesions are also extremely common.
This unique combination of risks requires the use of specialist hygiene products. VITIS Orthodontic has been developed to protect patients and help safeguard the success of the treatment.
Important note, aligners inhibit the natural function of saliva; the ‘wash-out’ action responsible for elimination of food waste, the remineralisation of enamel, maintenance and lubrication of the oral tissue. Consequently aligner wearers need to pay particular attention to their oral care regime and are also advised to use the VITIS Orthodontic range
What makes VITIS Orthodontic different to other oral hygiene products?
VITIS Orthodontic Mouthwash & Toothpaste contain a unique combination of 4 essential active ingredients that combine to provide superior all day protection, these include:
- Fluoride – prevents tooth decay and remineralises initial lesions.

- Aloe Vera – promotes healthy gums and reduces gingival inflammation.
