How to Brush

3 reasons to consider interdental brushes in your daily brushing ritual

Interdental brushing is getting more popular, yet we’ve been advocating it for more than 30 years. How justified is it?

Everyone has interdental space

If you have two teeth next to one another, you have interdental space. That’s where bacteria build their colonies.

Plaque between your teeth is hard to clean with conventional brushing

Conventional brushing doesn’t reach interdental space

Which leaves the bacterial colonies between your teeth untouched, so they can breed and produce bacterial waste. This waste causes caries, gum inflammation and bad breath.

Dental floss doesn’t reach where it’s supposed to

If there are uneven dental spaces, the floss will do nothing to the bacteria inside such space, and the bacteria will keep breeding.

Floss barely reaches bacteria inside interdental spaces, plus, it might hurt the gums

Always consult a dentist to select the size and type of interdental brush that’s right for you.
