So now you have braces. You most likely want to ensure that they do the best job possible for you, to give you a straight, healthy smile. Clearing food debris from between your teeth and braces is a vital step, to avoid plaque buildup or problems with your braces. There are several techniques available to help you floss with your braces and maintain your cleanest smile possible.
Simple Flossing With Braces Tools & Tips:
- String Floss and Floss Threader – The perfect combination to use underneath wires and around teeth to dislodge food particles that threaten the function of your braces
- Plackers or Platypus Flosser (Floss on a stick) – Designed to fit right behind your braces and wire to clean between teeth and save you time
- Water Flossers – 50% more effective than traditional dental floss, easier to use, a faster and more efficient clean
- Fluoride mouthwash– a 30 second swish can help you fight off gingivitis and strengthen your teeth
