Which Steps Should be Followed When Brushing with Braces?

Braces are the perfect way to get those pearly whites in a perfect straight line, but they can make the fight against the Sugarbugs a bit more challenging. So, how can your Little Hero stand up to the challenge? Our caped crusaders have prepared the perfect plan to keep that smile bright and healthy even with braces on!

  • Preparing for Battle – Before brushing, make sure your Little Hero removes any rubber bands or other detachable parts from the braces.
  • Start Your Brushes – Encourage your Little Hero to place his/her brush at a 45-degree angle to reach those tricky spots between the wires. Each tooth should be brushed with a circular motion for at least 10 seconds. It’s important to remind your Little Hero that every corner of the mouth must be cleaned. This means both inside and outside surfaces.
  • The Finishing Touches – After brushing is out of the way, your Little Hero should floss with super floss, which is designed to reach the places that may prove challenging to get to with braces. To top things off, your Little Hero should eradicate any leftover particles by rinsing with mouthwash.
