All of Your Brushing & Flossing How-To's

It is important to brush and floss after every meal in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy throughout your treatment. Let us know if you have any questions in choosing the right toothbrush, toothpaste or dental floss.

When & How to
Brush With Braces

> Brush your teeth for two minutes after every meal with a soft-bristled, small-headed toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.

> Brush the outside and inside surfaces of your teeth using small, gentle, circular motions while positioning the head of the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line.

> Brush your teeth’s chewing surfaces and inside surface of your front teeth using short, gentle back-and-forth motions.

> The electric toothbrush you receive when starting your braces treatment should be used for the best brushing effectiveness.**

Flossing With Braces

Flossing after every meal will help keep your teeth and braces clean which will also keep your treatment time on track. Using a floss threader or special orthodontic floss, thread the floss behind each wire by wrapping the ends of the floss around your pointer fingers, leaving a few inches of taught floss between both fingers. Floss the sides of each tooth and beneath the gum line to remove any plaque and food particles. If the floss is not removing all the food particles between your teeth, ask about a water flosser.
