Irrigator while wearing braces

Sonic electric toothbrush

The time wearing braces can be troublesome, as it requires more attention in the cleaning process and the introduction of new habits. Using the right tools to achieve this goal can make everyday life much more enjoyable. Traditional flossing is very troublesome and time-consuming, which most people do not choose to do while wearing braces, so in this article we will tell you how the oral dobumua irrigator can become a great helper while wearing braces. The irrigator will significantly facilitate cleaning between the teeth by more effectively removing plaque and food particles during the use of braces.

The irrigator is easier to use than traditional floss

With standard dental floss, getting it between the brace wires and brackets is a very difficult job. By using an oral irrigator and choosing the most appropriate nozzle, the cleaning process will be much easier and more effective. You simply direct the water jet at your teeth and gums and it does the rest. This means that you can clean the oral cavity, gums and between the teeth with the irrigator in 1-2 minutes without traditional dental floss and achieve an equivalent result. Even better than flossing while wearing braces, because you can clean the braces as well.

Removes plaque and food particles more effectively

"Journal of Clinical Periodontology"[1] a published study compared the effectiveness of the irrigator to traditional dental floss and found that the irrigator was significantly better at removing plaque and reducing the risks of gingivitis. This is because the pulsating stream of water is able to reach places that traditional floss cannot. We recommend choosing an irrigator whose water jet strength can be adjusted in as many different strengths as possible, as this will help you find the most suitable one so that your gums are not excessively irritated. The Klinii Oral Irrigator is available with 9 different modes, check it out by clicking here.

Irrigator while wearing braces

The irrigator will significantly facilitate cleaning between the teeth by more effectively removing plaque and food particles during the use of braces. "Journal of Orthodontics"[3] published study found that patients who used an irrigator while wearing braces had significantly lower rates of tooth decay and tooth decay compared to those who only brushed their teeth and did not use an irrigator. This is because irrigators can reach places that traditional toothbrushing cannot, such as between teeth and near braces.

Using an irrigator can help improve gum health

In a study published in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene[4], found that using an irrigator cleaning brush can significantly reduce gum bleeding and inflammation. This is important for patients with braces, as brace wires and fasteners can often irritate the gums and cause inflammation.

Using an oral irrigator while wearing braces can provide several benefits to your oral health.The irrigator is simpler and more effective than traditional flossing, and can help prevent cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. If you currently wear braces, consider incorporating an irrigator into your oral hygiene routine to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Wearing braces is a time when you have to be especially careful about oral hygiene, because this process starts to take more time, which is not always to the heart of people. Therefore, we recommended choosing suitable tools for effective promotion of oral hygiene and we recommend you to take a look at the oral irrigator provided in the clinic. We also recommend that you consult your orthodontist to make the best decision for your situation.
