Do I brush the same way if I have removable braces?

No, you should remove your braces first before you brush your teeth. Then brush your teeth as you ordinarily would using a fluoride toothpaste. Take care to clean outside and inner surfaces, in between teeth and chewing surfaces. Be sure to also brush your palette and your tongue, and rinse thoroughly.

Clean your braces with your toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Gently brush all areas, making sure that no food particles remain on the braces. Rinse thoroughly with fresh water.
