Appliance Care Tools
Rubber-tipped brushes — Special brushes that help you to get into difficult areas, and between teeth.
Oral irrigators — Used to shoot high-pressure streams of water onto your teeth to remove food. These are to be used in combination with regular brushing/flossing routine. They also should be used at a medium speed as to not cause damage to braces.
Antibacterial rinses — Perfect for adults, but the high alcohol content makes them unsuitable for children. Rinses are available for children, but not all are equipped to kill bacteria, only handle bad breath. When purchasing, make sure the label indicates management of bacteria.
Disclosing solutions — Disclosing solutions use vegetable dye to illuminate plaque in your mouth. Once highlighted, it is easy to use a toothbrush to remove the spots.
