Getting between teeth

Many people believe that brushing is all you need to do to clean your teeth, however that ignores one of the major areas of problems.

What is an interdental brush?

An interdental brush is a small brush specially designed for cleaning between your teeth, where a regular toothbrush doesn’t reach. Using an interdental brush every day, as a complement to toothbrushing, is an easy and efficient method to keep your gums and teeth fresh and healthy. Cleaning with an interdental brush prevents gum inflammation, cavities and bad breath.

Dental floss can be effective when the interdental spaces are very tight. This is often the first option when you start flossing in the late teens (or earlier if recommended by a dentist).
