Dr. Kevin Flood, dentist at Kevin Flood DDS is helping both teen and adult patients maintain healthier smiles during orthodontic treatment as they work to improve the alignment of their teeth. With the latest technology in Invisalign dentistry, Dr. Flood’s patients are able to easily maintain oral health during orthodontic treatment with removable aligners, compared to conventional braces with fixed brackets and wires.
Conventional braces require the use of special tools and products to properly floss and brush between teeth, brackets, and wires. Additionally, the metal parts increase the occurrence of food particles staying stuck on or between the teeth and gums. With conventional braces, proper brushing and flossing can take up to 20-30 minutes each day, preventing many patients from maintaining optimal oral health. With Invisalign clear braces, however, patients can simply remove the aligners to brush and floss their teeth normally, with virtually no change in their routine.
In addition to the hygiene benefits, Invisalign clear braces are much preferred by patients for their aesthetics and the lifestyle flexibility they offer. Because the aligners are completely removable, patients can easily remove them while eating as well as for special occasions like meetings, presentations, photographs, reunions, dates, and more. It’s easy for patients to still feel confident with their smile during Invisalign treatment, whereas many patients with conventional braces feel self-conscious about smiling during treatment.
For Invisalign patients who want a complete smile transformation, Dr. Flood also offers in-office and take-home teeth whitening services to brighten patient’s newly-straightened smiles. At his office in Cascade SE, Dr. Flood also offers services such as porcelain veneers, crowns, bonding, gum disease therapy, sealants, treatments for TMJ, and more.

We’re finding that on average, Invisalign patients have much healthier smiles at the end of their treatment which also means it’s less expensive for them in the long run because they don’t need to pay for extensive restorative procedures for their teeth.”ImagesContact
