Flossing daily is crucial for oral health, but it’s even more important when undergoing orthodontic care. Braces and aligners create more areas for food particles and bacteria to accumulate, leading to tooth decay, gum disease, and bad breath.
If you have traditional braces, you can floss using a floss threader or interdental brush. Gently guide the floss or brush under the archwire and between your teeth using a back-and-forth motion.
One of the advantages of clear aligners is that you can remove them to floss and brush your teeth normally, so maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing dental problems is easier. Remember to wear your aligners for the recommended time each day, typically 20-22 hours.
At Canyon Creek Orthodontics, we understand the importance of oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment. Visit our Springville, Spanish Fork, or Santaquin, Utah office for the best orthodontic care!
