Wearing Braces Makes Tooth Cleaning More Complicated

Go directly to Products for Braces and Orthodontics

Fixed orthodontic appliances can make cleaning of the teeth more complicated, as food compacts and plaque rapidly accumulates around brackets, bands and wires. To prevent cavities, white spots, gum disease and bad breath, it is important to clean properly.

Using a regular toothbrush is not enough

Dental professionals recommend a variety of brushes for orthodontic care. TePe’s specialty toothbrushes have user-friendly handles, soft bristles and small brush heads to easily reach all tooth surfaces; while interdental brushes clean around brackets, under the wire and between teeth.

Important tips:

  • Brush with a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste after every meal. A new toothbrush may be needed every three to four months or sooner if bristles are broken or frayed. A worn toothbrush doesn't do a good job of cleaning the teeth
  • Use special brushes for additional cleaning in difficult to reach areas
  • Avoid sweet drinks and snacks between meals
  • See an oral health professional for cleanings every six months
