Orthodontic Products That Can Help During Treatment

We love seeing all of our patients at Bennett Orthodontics, and while we know you love visiting us, too, we understand that your main goal is to complete treatment as soon as possible.

To help you achieve your smile goals more quickly, we’d like to tell you about some services we offer and some products you can use out of the office. 

Diode Laser 

Using a laser for medical treatment might sound like something in a sci-fi movie, but we use it at Bennett Orthodontics every day! We are passionate about using the latest technology to give our patients a more comfortable and efficient.

We use the Diode Laser to remove excess gum tissues. We usually do this for accurate bracket placement or to increase the functionality of your tooth, though it can also be used for cosmetic reasons.

Accurately placed brackets allow for more control over teeth movement so Dr. Bennett can more precisely move your teeth. Increased precision means less time in braces!

Water Flosser

If you haven’t already incorporated a water flosser into your routine, we highly recommend doing so. The devices are perfect for orthodontic patients of all treatment types (and even non-orthodontic patients)!

Water flossers use jets of water to remove stubborn food residue. After meals, getting into all the crevices in and around braces can be challenging, but water flossers can eliminate that frustration. For patients with aesthetic treatment options like clear aligners and clear braces, it can help them keep their subtle appearance by removing food particles that can stick out against the natural appliance or stain them. 

The devices also remove bacteria and plaque that might have been left behind by brushing or flossing. That bacteria and plaque can cause foul smell/tasting aligners, which is not inviting when you need to wear them for hours per day. They can also lead to tooth decay, gum disease, infection, bad breath, and other complications that can extend your treatment and cause unnecessary discomfort.

Add a water flosser to your routine for cleaner teeth, gums, and orthodontic appliances!

Invisalign Cleaning Crystals

Bennett Orthodontics is a proud provider of Invisalign clear aligners for children, teens, and adults. These trays have changed the orthodontic scene with their removability and almost invisible appearance. They offer a custom fit and treatment that can take as little as six months!

You must clean your Invisalign trays to keep them as effective and transparent as possible! Luckily, maintenance takes little time because Invisalign has created a cleaning product specifically for their trays. Invisalign Cleaning Crystals clean your trays in just fifteen minutes! Make sure to follow the instructions closely, as improper use can damage the trays. 

Interproximal Brush

There might be times when you cannot use a water flosser, such as at work, a restaurant, or school. An interproximal toothbrush is a portable brush that can clean your braces on the go. It is small enough to fit behind the wire and between the brackets but large enough to clean your braces effectively! It’s perfect when you need a freshening up between meals.

Orthodontic Products That Can Help During TreatmentBennett Orthodontics Doesn’t Want You In Treatment.

We aim to help you finish your orthodontic treatment as fast as possible so that you can show off your new smile to the world. We know teeth and jaw alignment does more than affect your appearance. It can affect your self-esteem, career, lifestyle, and health. We also know that the more pleasant treatment is and the quicker it can be completed, the more likely you are to start and finish treatment.

That’s why we work hard to provide impeccable alignments every day and always look for things to improve or reduce your treatment.
