"Flossing, or using wax-covered thread to clean between teeth, scrubs the hard-to-reach places that are easily missed by brushes, especially with brackets and wires in the way. Floss between each tooth once a day, and use a small interproximal brush to clean around the brackets and under the wires."

"Plaque develops when foods containing carbohydrates (sugars and starches), such as milk, soft drinks, raisins, cakes, or candy are frequently left on the teeth. Bacteria that live in the mouth thrive on these foods, producing acids as a result. Over a period of time, these acids destroy tooth enamel, resulting in tooth decay. Plaque can also develop on the tooth roots under the gum and cause breakdown of the bone supporting the tooth."
