Learn To Floss Correctly With Braces

We’ve all been told how crucial it is to floss daily, yet many individuals still forget to do it—particularly those who use braces. While wearing braces, flossing is vital because bacteria may so readily become stuck in strange locations, even if it may feel like a bother.

After each meal, floss your teeth and braces to keep them clean, which will also help you stay on schedule with your treatment.

Choosing The Right Floss

The majority of the store-bought commercial floss will work well for you. Only when teeth are remarkably close together, do people experience an issue. A thin, lightweight floss would be a better option in this situation. Waxless floss is more prone to catch on braces and fall out in shards. When flossing while wearing braces, it is advisable to use waxed floss and a floss threader since they will slide more smoothly between each tooth without getting caught.

In most places that offer toothbrushes and toothpaste, you can find an affordable, disposable gadget called an orthodontic floss threader. Because it enables you to drag the floss through the teeth above the wire and reach the gum line, it is crucial when flossing teeth with braces.

The Technique

The floss should be angled to form a ” C ” around each tooth. Establish the routine of starting each time you floss in a new area and moving clockwise. Release a tiny bit more floss as you go from tooth to tooth. Brush your teeth thoroughly after flossing, and swish with good quality mouthwash.

Regular flossing may appear awkward at first if you are not used to it, but with time it will become much more straightforward. In reality, flossers frequently claim that they can’t go very long without using floss. Otherwise, I just don’t feel like their teeth are clean. Create this positive habit, and you’ll preserve your natural teeth for a more extended period of time while avoiding gum disease.

You're All Awesome!!
