We have numerous patients who visit us at our Houston dental office asking about how to achieve optimum oral health despite having Invisalign. Practicing good oral hygiene may be be quite a challenge when wearing aligners and similar corrective devices as they can trap more food particles in between teeth and stop you from brushing and flossing effectively.

So how exactly do you take care of your teeth when wearing Invisalign? Read on below!

1. Brush the right way using the right type of toothbrush.

By using an interdental toothbrush,start brushing at the outside of your teeth and brush at a straight angle using circular strokes. When cleaning the areas between your braces, you can efficiently brush by angling the toothbrush up and down. In addition, don’t forget to brush your molars (the chewing surfaces in your teeth).

2. Continue to floss even though it may prove difficult at first.

3. Brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

4. Stay away or limit your intake of foods which can cause discoloration such as coffee and tea.

5. Get in touch with us for regular check-ups!

If you’ve been dealing with single or multiple tooth loss for now, you have probably realized that there’s more to your teeth than giving you that bright, confident smile. In addition, your teeth is also important in helping you chew and speak well which in turn could affect your level of nutrition and speech abilities.

Here at our Houston dental implant practice, one of the most common concerns of clients seeking tooth replacement options is whether or not dental implants are the optimal tooth replacement option. If you’re one of these patients, below is a list of reasons why dental implants outshine traditional tooth replacement alternatives such as dentures and bridges!

  • Dental implants do more than just fill gaps; it can also avoid further tooth loss. By and large, implants can help promote and maintain the health of your surrounding teeth as it does not rely on adjacent teeth for support but naturally fuses with your jawbone instead. This reason alone should convince you to choose dental implants than other existing options such as dentures which rely on surrounding teeth to be able to function.

  • Aside from preserving the surrounding natural teeth, dental implants also help preserve the integrity of your facial structures which in turn results to improved appearance. Specifically, this means avoidance of one of the common consequences of multiple tooth loss — the appearance of wrinkles and collapse of the lower third of the face resulting to making you look older than your real age.

  • Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can replicate the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. This fact translates to you being able to smile, eat, and speak naturally. The nutrition aspect is particularly important for elderly patients who can have a hard time chewing and swallowing resulting to inability to meet daily dietary requirements.

  • Dental implants can last you a lifetime if it’s properly cared for.

Ultimately, choosing dental implants will result to increased confidence and comfort on your end! Despite being more expensive than other tooth replacement alternatives, nothing beats dental implants when it comes to improving overall quality of life.
