Brushing:

  • Hold your soft bristle toothbrush at an angle and press against the teeth, flexing the bristles.
  • Move the brush in small circles, cleaning the tooth surface.
  • Brush above the archwire and below it.
  • Brush the backside and the chewing surfaces of all your teeth.

Flossing:

  • Slide the floss gently between your teeth.
  • Avoid snapping the floss through a tight space.
  • Rub the floss up and down the sides of each tooth.
  • Do not use a shoeshine or see-saw motion.

Any questions?  We are always here to help!  Feel free to contact either of our offices any time.
