How do I use my Sonicare if I wear braces?


If you wear braces, you can best use your Philips Sonicare toothbrush as follows.

Make sure the brush head is placed at an angle between the brackets and the gum line.
Using light pressure, gently wiggle the tips of the longer bristles between your teeth for 2 seconds. Then gently roll the brush handle so the bristles clean the bracket and the rest of the tooth before you glide the bristles to the next tooth.
Repeat this until you have brushed all your teeth.
Please do not force the bristles into gaps in the braces.

Please note that all Sonicare toothbrushes may be used to clean around braces. However, our Mini brush head is especially suited for people with braces and other site-specific cleaning needs. It is 40% smaller than our Medium brush head and has a slightly longer neck.
