Even for those without braces, brushing your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes is essential for good oral health. Proper, consistent brushing and flossing habits become even more crucial when it comes to caring for braces.
If you have braces you should attempt to brush your teeth more frequently, ideally after each meal and snack.
In addition to brushing your teeth, make sure to floss your teeth at least once a day. For more information on this topic read our article Cleaning Dental Braces.
If you have braces and use a manual toothbrush, consider upgrading to an electric toothbrush. The Waterpik® Complete Care Water Flosser with separate Sonic Toothbrush offers everything you need to care for your braces in one convenient device.
