When it comes to your oral health, it’s important to maintain a good oral hygiene routine that includes flossing at least once a day. Food particles, debris, and plaque buildup can get trapped between teeth and in hard-to-reach areas that a toothbrush may not be able to reach. For an optimal clean, especially if you have braces, add a water flosser to your daily routine to better reduce plaque buildup to help keep your gums healthy.
Braces are often composed of brackets and wires, giving food particles and plaque bacteria even more tight spaces in which to hide. As plaque accumulates on teeth and along the gum line it can lead to gum issues and tartar—something that only a dental professional can remove.
When paired with twice daily brushing, flossing can help remove debris and plaque for cleaner teeth and healthier gums. Traditional floss like
Oral-B Glide Floss has a silky texture that slides easily between teeth while stimulating gums to help promote gum health. However, it may not be the most ideal flossing option for cleaning braces. Oral-B Super Floss comes equipped with three unique features that work together for cleaning braces, bridges and wide gaps between teeth.
To further clean teeth and gums when wearing braces, adding a
water flosser to your routine can help remove even more trapped debris and reduce plaque buildup. Oral-B Water Flosser Advanced is expertly designed to deliver a powerful and effective clean for braces, bridges, implants, and crowns.
A water flosser, when used after brushing and traditional flossing, whether with an ortho-specific floss or regular string floss, can help wash away any leftover food and reduce plaque buildup in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth. The Oral-B Water Flosser Advanced features unique Oxyjet Technology that’s water enriched with microbubbles of air to clean deep and detoxify below the gum line*. Plus, its inspired design helps target and helps eliminate plaque bacteria for cleaner teeth and healthier gums.
Deep cleaning and detoxifying* while wearing braces with the Oral-B Water Flosser Advanced is easy, especially since its cordless design makes it both portable and easy to handle. Follow the steps below on
