How to Floss with Invisalign braces
- Posted on: Jul 15 2020
When patients think of braces, they often wonder how they can take care of their smile during treatment. Brushing and flossing are more difficult with the placement of brackets and wires glued and connected to the teeth. Dr. Paul A. Peterson and his team at Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry make it easier than ever for patients to care for their smile during orthodontic treatment with Invisalign braces.
What is Invisalign?
Dr. Peterson describes Invisalign braces as a treatment designed to reposition the teeth using individual clear aligner trays. These trays, which are made to fit perfectly over the patient’s existing smile, gently move the teeth within alignment of the dental arch. The benefit of this treatment is the ability of patients to maintain their oral health and wellness. This is because the trays are easily removed by the patient to brush and floss. Flossing with Invisalign is done just as before, except after the trays have been taken out. Once patients have brushed and flossed, they can replace the tray in their smile and get on with their day—with a healthier, more beautiful smile in no time!
Who is a candidate for Invisalign?
The best candidates for Invisalign treatment are teenage or adult patients who have mild to moderate malocclusion. Invisalign works to realign the bite, address overcrowding and bring together teeth when spaces have formed. This treatment is a much more desirable option for patients who want to avoid the appearance of metal brackets and wires while allowing them to care appropriately for their smile from start to finish.
