You've just gotten braces and you're excited about the smile transformation that awaits you.
But there's one thing you might not have considered - how to properly care for your teeth while wearing braces.
It's important to choose the right toothbrush to ensure that you maintain good oral hygiene throughout your orthodontic journey.
In this article, we'll explore the different types of toothbrushes that are best suited for braces and why they are important.
What Kind of Brush is Used for Braces?
When it comes to choosing a toothbrush for braces, there are a few key factors to consider. First and foremost, you'll want to look for a brush with soft bristles.
Braces can make your teeth and gums more sensitive, so using a soft-bristled brush will help prevent any discomfort or irritation.
Additionally, soft bristles are more gentle on the brackets and wires of your braces, reducing the risk of damage.
Another important feature to look for in a toothbrush for braces is a compact head.
The smaller head size allows for better maneuverability and access to those hard-to-reach areas around your brackets and wires.
This ensures that you can effectively clean all surfaces of your teeth and braces, preventing the buildup of plaque and food particles that can lead to cavities and gum disease.
Lastly, consider opting for a toothbrush with a non-slip grip. As you brush your teeth with braces, you'll need to apply a bit more pressure than usual to effectively clean around the brackets and wires.
A toothbrush with a non-slip grip will make it easier for you to maintain control and prevent accidental slips or injuries.

What is a Braces Toothbrush Called?
The toothbrush specifically designed for braces is commonly referred to as an "orthodontic toothbrush."
These toothbrushes are specially designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with braces. Orthodontic toothbrushes typically feature all the qualities mentioned earlier, including soft bristles, a compact head, and a non-slip grip.
Orthodontic toothbrushes often have bristle patterns that are specifically designed to clean around braces.
Some may have longer bristles in the middle to effectively reach the areas between the brackets, while others may have shorter bristles on the sides to clean the surfaces of the teeth.
These specialized bristle patterns help ensure that every nook and cranny of your mouth is thoroughly cleaned, promoting optimal oral health during your orthodontic treatment.
It's important to note that you can also use a regular toothbrush if you're unable to find an orthodontic toothbrush. Just make sure it meets the criteria of having soft bristles, a compact head, and a non-slip grip.
