Begin at the top of the braces. Press down onto the toothbrush, applying just enough pressure to get the tips of the bristles underneath the wires. Then, scrub from one side one side to the next numerous times. After that, brush under the braces using similar tension and speed. Finally, brush across the top of the braces, repeating both of these steps.
