How to get an A on brushing
How do I get an “A” or “B” on brushing?
Answer- clean teeth & healthy gums-
and here are some tips:
Brush. Most people do fine except for 2 areas
Behind the arch wires
The area between the gum line and the braces
Floss. You will need to floss every day, NOT just the day before your appointment. (This removes the bacteria which cause puffy gums and cavities.)
Use the threader and make sure the floss goes on the side of each tooth and not right in the middle.
