Electric Toothbrushes & Braces

To remove the plaque that can build up quickly in their crevices, braces need to be cleaned thoroughly on a regular basis. An electric toothbrush can make brushing your teeth with braces easier and more effective.


Choose an electric toothbrush with a round, rotating head.

Electric toothbrushes with round, rotating heads create the ideal circular brushing motion. The rotating motion sweeps away plaque and food particles more effectively than a sawing “back-and-forth” motion does.

The round head is small in size, making it easier to clean those hard to reach crevices and get into those awkward angles.

Electric toothbrushes have special features that help you get a better clean.

Many electric toothbrush models feature handy timers that tell you how long to keep brushing for. Some even feature different modes, such as a gum cleaning mode or a deep clean mode.

Electric toothbrushes mean less work!

Electric toothbrushes make cleaning your teeth feel effortless. You gently guide the toothbrush across the surfaces of your teeth, and let the toothbrush do all the brushing work. Just make sure you get all the surfaces of each tooth!
