Tooth brush is not important, toothpaste is the important thing and let me tell you something special every night before going to bed go for a mouth wash with salty water ' boil the water a little ' NOT TO HOT' a little cold then wash it keep the salty water in your mouth for half minute . do it 3 or 4 times and go to sleep . it makes healthy and strong.
Honestly,The dentist will tell you all the things you need and have do to for your braces including your toothbrush that you may need. But you should use a electric one with a thinner tip those are the good ones.
Tooth brushes really do matter when it comes to braces, I have braces myself. My orthodontist recommended the 'Phillips Sonicare Pro Results'. You can buy these at local grocery stores such as Walmart & Target.They run anywhere from $65- 90, depending on where you purchase it from. I hope this helps! -Shelby
I have braces and when I got them the dentist gave an eletric tooth brush but I just found that a normal tooth brush works just as well. Besides the electric tooth brush flicks the tooth paste everywhere
soft toothbrushes are best... water piks worked wonders when I had my braces on... I thought there was a brush out there like denture brushes that were small and conical these days made for brushes, but I have a friend that used the toddler brushes because they were smaller, I know there are disposable brush type of picks that will fit in your pocket as well... do a quick search on amazon.com and you'll find a number of options.

A child's toothbrush with soft bristles. And get a proxy brush from your orthodontist or dentist. You can also buy them at most department stores in mouth care section. It's a small brush on a slender handle that can get under your braces. Sort of like a toothpick with bristles. Also, you can get flossers that have a stiff end that makes it easier for you to get under your wires to floss.
