Nope, it's not an ortho brush. Just a regular 'ol toothbrush.

i used a reg brush for the first 2mths of being braced
i find the ortho brush is easier to use as it allows me to brush everything all at once, insted of with a normal to brush the gumline, then above the brackets etc as if i tried to use a reg and brush the brackets the bristles tended to get stuck and pull on my brackets (i have 3m smartclips, kinda bulky)
my story --
February 29 2008 - initial consultation, records and spacers
March 17 2008 - molar bands
March 20 2008 - 2 upper 1st premolar extractions
April 17 2008 - upper jaw braced
April 24 2008 - lower jaw braced
May 1 2009 - primary left central incisor extraction

i, too, use the preserve brushes. they have ones with 'ultra soft' bristles and are fantastic! i discovered them in february when i had a crown put on and came to love them even more in may when i got braced!

An excellent very soft toothbrush is the Dr. Collins Perio brush. I had been using the Oral-B extra soft brush and the Dr. Collins is a lot softer. It's almost as soft as the brush my periodontist gave me after my gum grafts, but it does a much better cleaning job.

I also like the Wisdom Click brush in sensitive. It has a bit of a V cut so it works good around the brackets and everything and is also quite soft.

Another great product I just discovered is Dr. Tung's Smart Floss. I love it.

My Ortho's assistant suggested a toddler brush because it's soft and small.
