Electric Toothbrushes & Braces

You need to clean your braces thoroughly to get rid of plaque and bacteria that builds up on your teeth. An electric toothbrush makes brushing your teeth and braces more effective and efficient.


Choose an electric brush with a round and 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, which makes it easier to reach awkward crevices in your mouth

Electric toothbrushes come with special features to help give you 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. All you have to do is guide your tooth brush across the surface of your teeth. Just make sure you get all the surfaces of each tooth!
