How to care for your braces
How to clean your braces
- Start by rinsing your mouth with water, to loosen food debris that has been trapped around the wire.
- Then clean the teeth and braces with a toothbrush using small circular motions. Don’t forget to angle the brush towards the gum line.
- Finish by brushing the inside and chewing surfaces.
To get a good result, you will need to clean where the toothbrush cannot reach. A small toothbrush with a round head is useful for cleaning around the brackets and gum line. An interdental brush will help clean under the wire and between the teeth.
