Validity of ghusal after finding braces glue on one's teeth

Q: I recently got my braces off and there is still some glue from it stuck on my teeth. This is normal because the glue is transparent and may be difficult for the dentist to see. However, my next dentist appointment is next week and this week I will have to do ghusl after my haidh ends.

I can’t get an earlier appointment. When I looked online for solutions to get the glue off, they recommended stuff like baking soda but these things can damage the enamel. Will my ghusl be valid with this glue on my teeth?

A: Yes, your ghusal will be valid.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
