BRUSHING WITH BRACES

Use a soft-bristled, small-headed toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to carefully get around all of the parts of your braces. Pay close attention when brushing around brackets and other parts of the appliance. After every meal, brush for two minutes alternating between small, circular motions and back-and-forth motions. Make sure to brush the inside, outside, and chewing surfaces of your teeth and then tilt the brush to a 45-degree angle to gently brush the gum line.
