How To Brush Your Braces

Remember to brush at least twice a day and try to brush after each meal if you can.

It’s best to spend at least 2 minutes brushing – don’t forget these steps!
  1. Brush directly on your braces
  2. With your brush angled at 45 degrees brush between your braces and gums
  3. Brush the chewing side of your teeth
  4. Don’t forget the insides also!

If you are using an electric toothbrush, place the brush in those areas and let the brush do the work. If you are using a handheld brush it is best to use a circular motion.
