What about toothbrushing & flossing?

November, 2012

If teeth are brushed correctly you need only brush your teeth twice a day, first thing in the morning & last thing at night. Remember, toothbrushing & tooth paste can be very abrasive & it is possible to over-do things. After meals, the best thing to do is rinse out with water. Conventional flossing is not possible, but there is such a thing as ‘super-floss’ which can be threaded directly between the teeth, under the arch wire. You will probably a lso be advised to use a fluoride mouthwash last thing at night, afte r tooth-brushing, to
further protect the teeth. Failure to keep your teeth & brace clean will lead to permanent scarring of your teeth.
