HOW TO FLOSS WITH BRACES



There are several products available to help clean between the teeth when you have braces.


SuperFloss has a stiff end that allows you to thread the floss between the wire and the teeth. Then, you can floss between the teeth like you do with regular floss.


Proxy brushes, shown below, have a tip that resembles a Christmas tree. They can be used to clean underneath the archwires. However, the tip is too thick to floss between the teeth.



Water flossers (for example, WaterPik) can also be used to clean around brackets and underneath the archwire. However, it cannot clean the tight contacts between teeth.
