Will my teeth fall out? Do you have any thoughts/advice?
I'm 21 & have already had 11 teeth filled from cavities and one root canal. The dentist say I'm brushing well & to keep it up. I just got braces as well. What's an easy way to floss my teeth.

just ask your dentist or go to a pharmacy to buy a special flosser for people with braces.

Your dental hygienist can show you the best and most effective way to floss while wearing braces. Take your dentist's advice, keep up the good dental hygiene, and you will have a beautiful smile for a lifetime.

avoid sugar absolutely and without any ifs ands or buts. brush and floss regularly particularly before going to bed. however, that should help unless there is a problem that you inherited from your forebears.

No. You should have asked the dentist about flossing. They do have those fuzzy dental probes to go between your teeth. You could try those...

Your teeth wont' fall out if your seeing a dentist regularly, but you might end up with inplants if you have soft enamel. Just floss like everyone else does pull out 2 foot of the stuff, wind it around your fingers and use a scissor like motion between each tooth. Alternative is get those little flossing 'swords' and use them.

You wouldn't have been a candidate for braces if your teeth were going to fall out! Go to Walmart or RiteAid and pick up SuperFloss. It's a special type of floss specifically for people with braces or bridges. One end of the floss is stiff so that you can slide it easily between the brackets.

Just because i isn't easy does NOTmean you shouldn't floss!! I am going to have to get a fake tooth because of a bike wreck i had a few years ago. If you have teeth, take care of them!!

11 cavities and a root canal by age 21 does not seem to me like brushing well. Get some glide floss and use it DAILY. And brush at LEAST twice a day. Use Listerine at night.

Yikes. I have always hated flossing, but I found these stick things that you just hold and one end is pointy and the other has floss on it. I can't think of what they are called, but they are awesome.

the sticks with floss on them

The nicest girl on earth!
just keep brushing, ask your orthodontist for a special flossing utensil called a needle its designed for braces and use a fluoride based mouthwash before you go to bed....

Listen to your dentist and your teeth will probably stay in.
For flossing there are these thin, plastic string things with a loop at the end, called floss threaders. Your orthodontist should have them. What you do is put the floss through the loop about two inches in and stick the threader under the braces to your teeth and floss like regular.
The link has illustrations on how to do this.

Buy the floss picks, they sell them at walgreens, walmart, etc... They are pretty easy to use. and cheap.

They make things that you put the floss through so you can weave in and out of your braces. Either buy them at walmart or ask your dentist/orthodontist if they have any.
