How Should I Brush My Teeth With Braces?
Whether you’re an adult or a child, the technique for brushing around your braces is the same. Instead of brushing your teeth with your mouth closes, you want to make sure your jaw is open. When you brush, take care to brush both above and below the bracket on the tooth. Keeping your jaw open will help you remember to brush both above and below.
You should never brush your teeth with a back and forth motion, doing so will wear away your gums and cause more problems later on. Instead, you should make tiny circles and use an extra-soft toothbrush to keep your gums clean and strong while you have braces.
For a more visual demonstration, here is a handy video from one of our dental professionals, so you can see exactly how to brush your teeth while you have braces.
