Can you use an Oral-B electric toothbrush with braces?

While it's safe to use any of our electric toothbrush cleaning modes on braces, we recommend using the sensitive mode. It oscillates at a lower speed for extra care and comfort along the gum line -- and around the brackets and orthodontic wires.

Moreover, if you own an Oral-B iO toothbrush, for an even more effective brushing you can use the specific brushing head made for orthodontics – iO Specialised Clean. Its shape allows to clean the intra spaces between teeth and braces, so an effective clean.

  • Specially designed with dental professionals to reach and clean areas which require special focus such as braces, implants, and misaligned teeth

  • Oral-B iO Specialized Clean is precisely shaped with angled outer tufts which support the central tuft, to reach and clean hard to reach areas

You can find the iO Specialised Clean brush head in-store and online.
