Flossing Your Braces
- Step 1- Floss at least once a day. The floss needs to be pulled under the archwire. A floss threader facilitates this. Start by pulling floss through the threader.
- Step 2- Push the end of the floss threader under the archwire and pull the floss through.
- Step 3- Pull the floss up between the teeth and gently move it up and down the side of both teeth. Remember to move it up all the way under the gums.
- Step 4- Pull the floss out and use a different section of it for the next tooth.
