Tips for Cleaning Your Teeth with Braces
When you’re wearing braces, it becomes even more important to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly. Food debris and plaque easily becomes trapped in the many crevices of your brackets. Orthodontists often recommend using a floss threader to make it easier to floss with braces. A floss threader can help you maneuver the floss under the archwire. Remember to apply the floss to both sides of each tooth.
