Your regular toothbrush only cleans the inside, outside and biting surfaces of the tooth. Don’t forget to clean the surfaces between the teeth, where bacteria can multiply if left undisturbed.
Keeping your mouth healthy
Dental plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on and between your teeth. It must be removed regularly, or it can cause gum inflammation, cavities and bad breath. The area in between the teeth is difficult to reach with a tooth brush and an interdental product is recommended to use in these areas.
It is recommended to start cleaning between your teeth in your early adulthood every day to keep your mouth fresh and healthy.
When you start cleaning between your teeth, your gums can feel sore and bleed but don’t stop since bleeding gums are often a sign of gum inflammation. If you don’t notice an improvement within a few days, contact your dental professional.
How to clean between the teeth
There are different interdental cleaning devices such as floss, dental picks or interdental brushes. An interdental brush is the most efficient tool to keep your teeth healthy and prevent gum inflammation and cavities. What product you need is dependent on your individual needs and preferences. Ask you dental professional for advice.
