While we agree that good things come to those who wait, we’re all for speeding up the process when it comes to creating smiles. That was one of the reasons that Dr. James T. TenBrook invented T1 braces. What typically takes at least two years can now be done in less than one with an average of only eight visits to the office. Plus, you’ll spend the time you are wearing braces in very little or no discomfort. Pretty cool, right?
How it works
Dr. TenBrook’s T1 system uses low-friction technology that keeps the force exerted on your teeth to a minimum – about 1/5 of what you would experience with a traditional bracket system. No more painful wire tightening from the days of old. In fact, even the wires are advanced. T1 braces use a series of high-efficiency, nickel titanium archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably. They work 24-hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align your teeth. Every minute counts.
Easy to keep clean
When wearing braces of any kind, it’s important to keep them clean. It may require a bit more effort than what you’re used to, but the T1 design makes it easier than ever to keep your teeth healthy while wearing braces. That’s because TenBrook brackets are designed to minimize materia alba which is the accumulation of microorganisms due to food debris that cause plaque.
Cleaning tips include brushing at least four times a day – if possible, after each meal or snack. You should also floss your teeth once a day. Your orthodontic staff will show you how to thread the floss through the wires to loosen any food that may be stuck there or near the brackets. Using a fluoride rinse once a day is also a good idea. Keeping your teeth clean will protect your braces, as well as prevent cavities and plaque buildup. Make sure you visit your dentist every three to six-months for a professional cleaning.
