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!
- Brush directly on your braces
- With your brush angled at 45 degrees brush between your braces and gums
- Brush the chewing side of your teeth
- 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.
