Flossing with Linguals

#1 Post by Smileybrace » Tue Sep 21, 2004 10:42 am

Dr Rick,
I have lingual braces and now a powerchain. I do not know how on earth I am supposed to floss anymore. The only way I can even see the backsides of my teeth is to hold up a little round mirror while looking in the bathroom mirror. With only one free hand I can't figure out how to floss.
Do you have any helpful advice for me?
Thank you.

Hang in there you will get the hang of it :wink:
