How do I use my Philips toothbrush if I wear braces?
When you are wearing braces, brushing your teeth is not always easy. You can best use your Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush as follows.
Tips and tricks:
Make sure that the brush head is placed at an angle between the brackets and the gum line.
Using light pressure, gently wiggle the tips of the longer bristles between your teeth for 2 seconds. Then gently roll the brush handle so the bristles clean the bracket and the rest of the tooth before you glide the bristles to the next tooth.
Repeat this until you have brushed all your teeth.
Please do not force the bristles into gaps in the braces.
Philips Sonicare Mini brush head
Please note that all Sonicare toothbrushes may be used to clean around braces. However, our Mini brush head is especially suited for people with braces and other site-specific cleaning needs. It is 40% smaller than our Medium brush head and has a slightly longer neck.
