Even while wearing braces, it is expected the patient will brush and floss their teeth every day. Some argue that with braces flossing is even more essential due to the wires making it easier for food to get caught between the teeth. Special threading tools have been developed to assist flossing while wearing braces. This helpful tool allows floss to be threaded by the gum line of the teeth despite the wire of the braces. This enables flossing of this difficult area, preventing an increase in plaque. Continuing to floss with braces will ensure a beautiful smile as well as healthy teeth!
