When you wear braces, plaque has more places to accumulate and build up. Learn how our electric toothbrushes more effectively clean around braces to remove plaque and help prevent gum disease.

Award-Winning Brushing Technology

When it comes to getting the best clean possible, the  Oral-B iO series delivers on every aspect—it combines powerful, yet gentle micro-vibrations with our unique dentist-inspired brush head for a professional clean feeling every day. With up to 7 smart modes to choose from and real-time coaching, your teeth will get an optimal clean, even when wearing braces. Plus, when brushing with the Oral-B app, you can achieve your specific oral care goals through different journeys, like the Ortho Care Journey for braces.

Oscillating-Rotating Power

It’s more difficult to clean hard-to-reach areas and along the gum line when wearing braces. However, the oscillating-rotating power of Oral-B® Electric Toothbrushes does the work for you and removes 100% more plaque than manual toothbrushes. The Oral-B Genius X provides daily personal coaching based on your brushing behaviors to help improve your habits so you can brush all areas of the mouth more evenly with just the right amount of pressure.

Specially Designed Brush Head

The Ortho Brush Head* has specially designed bristles to easily and effectively remove plaque around brackets and other orthodontic appliances. Simply let your brush head rest for 1 to 2 seconds on each tooth, and then guide it along in the same manner you would if you were brushing without braces.

Once your braces are off, you can switch to Oral-B’s  FlossAction Brush Head* which sweeps away plaque for a floss-like clean, while our CrossAction Brush Heads* feature perfectly angled bristles to help reach deep between your teeth.

Most advanced for healthy gums during and after braces


Your Choice of Cleaning Modes

All of our electric toothbrushes have the Daily Clean mode, which walks you through a full two-minute clean, but some also include a variety of modes. The Pro-Clean Mode guides you through an extra minute on your routine to make sure you spend enough time removing plaque around your braces, while the Massage mode lightly cleans gums to help protect against gum disease like  gingivitis.

Ensure a Complete Clean

Following a thorough daily oral hygiene routine is important, especially when wearing braces. In addition to brushing twice a day, keeping up with your orthodontic appointments, visiting your dental professional every 6 months, and regularly flossing at least once a day, consider supplementing your regimen with a water flosser. The  Oral-B Water Flosser Advanced, includes a Focused Stream for more precise and targeted cleaning to remove trapped plaque and food between wires and brackets.
