Dr. Terry Vines of the Redlands area is a dentist who also provides his patients with orthodontic treatments. Patients who visit Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry are welcome to learn about the two treatments he provides which include traditional metal bracket and wire braces and Invisalign, a clear aligner treatment. Using some of the latest technologies, his practice takes a step above the rest in providing orthodontic services and avoiding the need to refer patients to another specialist whom they do not know and trust as they do him. Dr. Terry Vines takes pride in offering his patients dental solutions that fit their lifestyles and budget.

One aspect of orthodontia that requires special attention is care. Both traditional braces and Invisalign have their own set of oral care suggestions.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces use metal brackets glued to the teeth and wires to hold them together and help them in repositioning the smile. When traditional braces are placed on the teeth, it can greatly affect one's oral health. It can be difficult to get between the brackets and wires to brush and floss effectively. Patients who have braces placed on their teeth are encouraged to speak with Dr. Terry Vines about special flossing devices that can help in getting floss thread through the braces and between the teeth. Patients should also be diligent about brushing after every meal as food particles can easily be stuck between wires and teeth. Brushing can eliminate plaque and tartar, which can develop around the brackets and result in cavities and even discoloration of the teeth after the brackets are removed at the end of treatment.


Invisalign helps patients maintain their natural smile and oral health easily because they are removable. Patients are encouraged to remove their aligner trays to brush and floss their teeth as they normally would. Patients should also brush and rinse their aligner trays as well to make sure they stay clean and help facilitate better oral health.

Dr. Terry Vines is proud to give his patients options when it comes to orthodontic services and welcomes new patients into his practice to learn more about traditional braces and Invisalign aligner therapy. Contact him today to book an appointment and find out how Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry can assist you in achieving a more beautiful smile!
