Braces make it impossible to floss!

I’ll admit it: Flossing with braces is hard, but it’s not impossible. Besides, you’ve made an investment to better your smile and having straight teeth is only part of the package. While many patients struggle with flossing, or sincerely believe they can’t floss while wearing braces, flossing remains an essential part of maintaining proper oral […]

What about a good mouthwash?

Well, we can all dream, right? While a good mouthwash can fight gum disease, prevent cavities, and make bad breath disappear with a few swishes, it can’t remove plaque like a good flossing can.
