Your toothbrush alone will not be sufficient to keep your teeth clean when you have your brace on. It is important to obtain a specially designed interproximal brush to clean in the small areas in between the brackets.
There are many different types of interproximal brush and it is recommended that a 0.7-1.0mm brush is used, which is would be a yellow, green or purple brush in the Tepe range.
A fluoride mouthwash used once a day before bedtime can help reduce the chance of permanent scaring (decalcification) around the brace.
