As someone else said I use the rest room for disabled persons when possible as usually there is a sink inside. If I have to wash my teeth in public I only use the toothbrush, no interdental brushes and definitely no flossing. The worst place to brush my teeth is during very long flights when you have to wash your teeth every time you eat and by the time I'm done, I'll find a long queue of people waiting to go in. And it seems now I have a bonded retainer which I suspect will accompany me for life, things don't seem to be any better as unfortunately despite of my lengthy teeth cleaning I get a lot of plaque formation. But I definitely wouldn't were my removable retainer over unwashed teeth.
In these three years and 1 week I've been in braces (as my uppers are still on) I've visited more restrooms than I had been in in the previous 38 years before braces. And some restrooms were really nasty indeed.........
