Maintaining Good Oral Health

The plaque on your teeth feeds on sugar, neglecting your oral hygiene can cause cavities, gum disease, and other issues.
With traditional metal braces, you would be forced to thread floss between each individual bracket to remove plaque. Due to this reason, many patients with braces stop flossing altogether.
