If you or someone you know wears braces, you’re used to getting food stuck in them. That’s just part of the whole experience. And when you wear cool wires on your teeth (yes, we’re talking about the fluorescent-colored ones), there are all sorts of new hidden cracks and corners for food particles to get trapped in, making it easier for plaque to build up and tartar to form. Adjust your rinse routine in this way for an extra layer of protection. The excellent thing about liquid, and LISTERINE® mouthwash is that it reaches all those tough-to-get-to spots to keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean.
Mouthwash Routine for Braces
TIP: As difficult as it is, make attempts to floss.
Note: After completing your healthy-mouth routine, its important to refrain from eating and drinking for 30 minutes.
Pour 20 ml (4 teaspoons) of LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN rinse into a paper cup.
Without diluting the solution with water, empty the cup into your mouth.
Swish for a full 30 seconds (try counting to 30 in your head, or using a stopwatch). Don't worry, if you can't get to 30 seconds the first time - it gets easier each time you try.
During rinsing, swish your mouth.
Spit the solution out in the sink.
