Ultrasound Technology Helps Clean and Whiten Teeth With Braces

Although braces are essential to correcting a variety of dental issues, cleaning braces with a standard toothbrush is as difficult as trying to floss with a jumprope.

The interweaving of wires and brackets traps all kinds of bacteria and food particles that cause plaque buildup and present the risk of tooth decay. Bacteria are usually the source of most dental problems—gingivitis, periodontitis, tooth loss, bad breath, you name it.

Unless teeth are kept scrupulously clean, cavities may emerge that wreak havoc on enamel, often leading to discoloration and stains.
