Thanksgiving Feasts and Orthodontics

added on: November 23, 2015

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Orthodontic options like braces can make Thanksgiving very frustrating. Affixed to teeth and held in place by bonding materials, many foods can break brackets or cause them to come loose and fall off. This means people with braces often have to avoid traditional Thanksgiving treats like nuts, fruits, vegetables, and candy. People with Invisalign®, however, have no such limitations.

If you are curious about the benefits offered by Invisalign®, please call 319-373-5082 to schedule a consultation with Marion family dentist Dr. Blaine McLaughlin.

Removable Aligners

Being able to remove aligners for eating and tooth cleaning is not only more convenient, it assists in maintaining better oral and systemic health. By removing aligners prior to brushing and flossing, more consistent removal of plaque and food particles in made possible. Keeping teeth whiter is also easier as surface stains have nowhere to accumulate.

Removing brackets for eating allows Invisalign users to enjoy crunchy fruits and vegetables along with nuts and seeds, all of which are prohibited during traditional orthodontic treatment.
