Permanent retainer question?

I got my braces off this morning and my orthodontist put a permanent retainer on my top and bottom teeth. He told me to floss, and he gave me a little brush thing to make it easier to clean them. The problem is that my teeth are too close together to fit the floss or the brush in between them to clean my retainers.... show more I got my braces off this morning and my orthodontist put a permanent retainer on my top and bottom teeth. He told me to floss, and he gave me a little brush thing to make it easier to clean them. The problem is that my teeth are too close together to fit the floss or the brush in between them to clean my retainers. I've tried normal floss and the special 'super floss' that you use when you have braces, and neither will fit through. Can anyone help with what to do? Thanks.
