Jordan Interdental brush

It is more challenging to clean teeth with braces as the daily bacterial coating on your teeth get many places to hide. Thus, it is difficult to clean sufficiently with an ordinary toothbrush and dental floss, and the risk of cavities and inflammation of the gums increases. To ensure good dental hygiene with braces, there are specially developed tools that can be helpful. 

3 steps to cleaning teeth with braces

We recommend this dental care routine for those with braces twice a day – morning and evening.

1. Clean

Using a dental floss adapted for cleaning braces is optimal for cleaning between the teeth. Clinic Brace floss is a specially designed floss with a stiffened part at each end that makes it easy to thread the dental floss between the teeth and the braces. The spongy dental floss is extra soft for thorough and gentle cleaning.

2. Brush

First, brush your teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste for 2 minutes.

Then, use a special brush to keep the braces themselves clean, such as an interdental brush. Clinic Interbrush is reaching areas of the braces which is hard to access for a regular toothbrush. It makes it easy to clean around and behind the braces. In addition, it helps remove plaque on the teeth along the gum line.

3. Rinse

Finally, we recommend that you finish by rinsing with a fluoride mouthwash. Many people rinse their mouths with water after brushing their teeth washing away the fluoride protection that the toothpaste provides. If you rinse your mouth with mouthwash that contains fluoride, you preserve the fluoride protection and ensure long-term fresh breath. Avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol, as you will want to avoid irritation and dehydration of the mucous membranes in the mouth.
