Our patients love having the ability to remove their clear aligners when they eat and brush their teeth. This allows them to continue their usual hygiene routine of brushing and flossing.
Many patients who have traditional braces find it difficult to properly take care of their teeth because they either had poor oral hygiene to start with and do not make adjustments to their cleaning routines while wearing braces, or they fall into poor oral hygiene habits once their brackets are placed.
One of the best ways I can be more clinically effective and reduce the discomfort my patient’s experience is through the combined use of clear aligners and impressionless scanning. Impressionless scanning is becoming more widely used in dentistry, which is one reason why many of our patients opt for clear aligners.
