Orthodontic brushes provide a longer filament head to improve access around appliances. Use gentle but direct brushing to include the appliance and tooth surfaces. Interdental brushes clean simply and effectively around brackets and wires. Simple adaptation of the brushes helps clean tooth surfaces and the appliance. Single tufted brushes are useful for the difficult to access sites. Filaments can be splayed onto the tooth surface and under the gum margins.
