Brushing With Braces
One of the most important steps in caring for your braces is maintaining excellent oral hygiene during your treatment. When brushing with braces, we recommend brushing twice a day for two minutes using fluoride toothpaste.
Pay special attention to brushing under wires and around brackets. To get beneath the wires of your braces, hold your toothbrush at an angle and brush each wire from the top down. Next, brush each tooth, starting at the gum line, and work your way down on the tooth’s surface. Additionally, brush thoroughly after meals, snacks, and beverages.
