Learning how to brush with braces is easy. It's important to take your time and follow these instructions below so that you are doing everything you can to maintain optimal oral health throughout your life with braces.
Place the brush between your gums and the brackets tilting the brush toward your gums at a 45° angle. The bristles should reach under your gums. Apply short back-and-forth strokes.
Aim the brush bristles in the opposite direction tilting toward the brackets. Apply short back-and-forth strokes as before.
Aim the bristles under the wire and toward the gums. Again apply short back-and-forth strokes.
Be sure to do these steps on BOTH the outside/cheek side and the inside/tongue side of your top and bottom teeth.
The last step is to scrub your chewing surfaces.
