Flossing with Braces Just got Easier!

When you first get braces, maintaining proper oral hygiene can be a challenge but it’s more important than ever! Making sure you’re brushing and flossing around each bracket and tooth can be both time consuming and frustrating. At Dr. Reed’s orthodontic office in Aurora, we want to make flossing easier! We provide all new patients with a Waterpik brand power flosser! We know how valuable this device is for our on-the-go patients. It’s a true time saver! Instead of threading floss between each and every bracket, the power flosser simply requires placing a small rubber floss tip in the space between your teeth and gumline. Then, push the ON button and move the flossing tip up and down against the surface of your teeth and below the gumline. Super easy and FAST! The power flossers are clinically proven as effective as string floss plus they reduce bleeding gums, inflammation and plaque. It also cleans between teeth where plaque forms and stains are toughest to reach. As seen in the photo below, the ergonomic handle design makes flossing an easy, one-handed operation! Get your power flosser today and USE IT! You’ll be amazed at how easy and effective it is!
