Any dentist will recommend that you regularly brush and floss your teeth if braces are present. However, rinsing is just as critical. Why should you always remember this step and what advantages does it offer?
- Rinsing your mouth before flossing will clean out any food particles that may have become trapped underneath the braces.
- These particles can be tough to reach with a normal toothbrush.
- Rinsing before you brush and floss helps to reduce the chances of developing a cavity.
"Cleaning your teeth well when you have braces will take more time, but will also be more important."
