Using a toothbrush and Waterpik® can clean most, but not all, of your tooth surfaces. Accessing the entire side surfaces of your teeth is generally only possible with dental floss. Since the archwire blocks a piece of floss from gaining access between the teeth, a threader is often required to loop the floss around the wire.
It is important to floss at least once daily. The ideal time to floss is at night before going to bed. Flossing is time consuming but it becomes easy and routine once you get the hang of it. If you are struggling to find time for flossing, we recommend that you pair it with an activity such as watching TV or listening to music.
