How to Floss With Braces From Orthodontist Dr. Brent Tyler Robison

There are many children and teens (and some adults) that don't know how to floss with braces. Or they have the misconception that they cannot floss at all if they have braces. But that's not the case at all.  In fact, daily flossing is especially important during orthodontic treatment because you're more likely to have food particles trapped in the braces, bands and wires, which could increase your risk of cavities. 

Robison Orthodontics has some helpful tips below for flossing with braces. 

You can use “Super Floss” or regular dental floss with a floss threader. 

A floss threader will help you get the dental floss underneath your archwires. 

Tear off about 18 inches of dental floss and pull it through the loop of the floss threader.

Insert the pointed end of the bridge threader gently underneath your archwire. Pull it all the way through until the floss is under your archwire.

“Super Floss” dental floss with a stiff end is also available. It is pre-cut and is very easy to insert underneath archwires.

Simply take the stiff end of the dental floss and insert it underneath your archwire. Pull it gently through. 

Once the dental floss is inserted, gently floss in between your teeth.

When you are flossing in between your teeth, remember to gently floss up and down under the gums.

Be sure to floss all of your teeth including the back ones.

During Your Invisalign Fitting With Dr. Brent Tyler Robison
