There is no doubt about it – it is hard to keep your teeth clean if you wear braces. Braces wearers are therefore more vulnerable to tooth decay and weakened teeth, even as they improve their smile. Clear braces from Felton Dental Care in Missoula provide a solution to this dilemma.
The problem with traditional metal braces are their brackets and wires, which create hard to reach places in which bacteria can thrive. Without vigilant hygiene, teeth can be permanently damaged.
Teeth are not the only thing at risk here, Missoula orthodontic patients can also develop gum disease, which can lead to bone recession and tooth loss.
One excellent solution: clear braces from Invisalign.
Invisalign clear braces are a total departure from traditional braces. They look like an athlete’s mouth guard. Made individually for each wearer, they fit into the mouth to gradually bring teeth into proper alignment. One of the things that makes them so attractive is that they can be removed at mealtime, so food particles stuck in braces becomes a thing of the past.
They are also, as the name says, almost undetectable – even to people standing just a few feet away.
