Orthodontic Products That Can Help During Treatment

So many things go into giving you the smile of your dreams, including doctor’s education, training, customer service, product knowledge, customer service, passion, and dedication.

Whether you are a new patient curious about what we offer at Icon Orthodontics or a current patient who wants to learn how to upgrade your orthodontic experience from home to improve your final results, this blog post is for you. Keep reading to learn about some in-office products and some you can use at home.

Products Icon Orthodontics Offers

Our top priority is to provide you with the smile of your dreams. We offer multiple treatment options, including various clear aligners, Damon metal braces, and Damon ceramic braces. While they are all excellent and have advantages, we decided to share just three of our amazing products in this blog today. Let’s take a look!

InBrace SmartWire Technology

Another discreet treatment option we have is InBraces Hidden Braces. These braces sit behind the teeth for ultimate orthodontic privacy. No one will know you are in treatment unless you tell them! 

InBraces have the subtly of clear aligners with all the advantages of traditional metal braces, but they do more than offer an aesthetic appearance. Their personalized Smartwire uses Gentleforce technology to transform your smile quickly by exerting continuous pressure on the teeth. The wire is programmed to know what to do from start to finish, drastically reducing your time spent in our offices.

The unique shape of the Smartwire also allows you to floss and brush normally, so there’s no need to learn a new routine!

Guarantee My Smile

Though this is not a physical item, it’s still an important product that can impact your smile for years!

Guarantee My Smile is a 5-year warranty to preserve your look! During those five years, if you are unsatisfied with your look, have had teeth movement, or lose your retainer, Icon Orthodontics will provide you with a new retainer or traditional metal braces at a wildly reduced cost!

Orthodontic Wax

Some irritation is to be expected whether you get braces or clear aligners. Orthodontic appliances can cause pinching, poking, and friction on the cheek, lips, and gums. Orthodontic wax is a removable material that can be used throughout your treatment program and is a shield against the orthodontic appliance. It offers instant relief and prevents future pain.

Products We Recommend

There are many dental and orthodontic products you can use at home to enhance your smile during your orthodontic experience. Let’s take a look at a few.

Water Flossers

Before starting orthodontic treatment, your teeth and gums must be in good health! A large part of this is brushing and flossing, but for extra help, we recommend you invest in a water flosser! Water flossers use streams of water to clean the teeth and gums. For orthodontic patients, these machines can help keep the hard-to-reach places of braces clean and remove residue from the mouth that could stain your aligners. They ensure the mouth is fresh and clean for a beautiful smile before, during, and after treatment.

Nice Toothbrushes

Water flossers are not replacements for brushing your teeth! You still need to brush and floss your teeth to eliminate bacteria, plaque, and germs that cause tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and other issues. Right now, though, we’re not going to focus on types of floss. We want to talk about toothbrushes!

A nice toothbrush might seem frivolous on paper, but it can make a massive difference to your oral hygiene routine! Both under- and overbrushing can lead to a receding gumline and weakened enamel, which leaves your teeth vulnerable to threats! We recommend using an automatic toothbrush with a pressure sensor and timer. The sensor alerts you from brushing too hard, and the timer tells you when to move to another section of your mouth.

Upgrading your toothbrush means an upgrade in your technique and oral health status!

Clear Aligner Cleaners

At Icon Orthodontics, we offer many clear aligner options, such as 3M Clarity, Invisalign, Spark, U-Lab, and Icon Orthodontics’ own 3D printed trays. In order to safely and effectively do their job, your clear aligners must be cleaned daily. On the plus side, they’re super easy to maintain and cleaning them only takes a few minutes.

Different companies use different materials, so ask Dr. Sun or Dr. Sarpotdar about the best way to clean yours before applying any products to your aligners. The wrong product could warp or damage your trays, and you don’t want that!
