How can I reduce complications after my child gets invisible braces?

You can reduce complications after your child gets invisible braces with good oral care. Invisible braces are attached to the back of the teeth, so food and bacteria can easily get trapped. Make sure your child brushes twice a day and flosses daily. Help your child avoid sticky and chewing foods such as gum and candy that can damage his invisible braces. Schedule regular cleanings with your child's dentist.
