Flossing every night is the best thing you can do for your gums and teeth. Flossing with braces is more challenging initially but once you get the hang of it, it becomes routine, takes less time and isn’t that bad at all.
We at Orthodontics at Don Mills pride ourselves in the time, detail and engagement of the oral hygiene instructions we provide for our patients when their braces go on. If at any time during your treatment you need a refresher, we are more than happy to do it again, please ask! And please do your teeth and gums a favour and floss every night, it will keep your teeth for a lifetime.
