Interdental Brushing

As a result of improved oral hygiene and fluoride, more people are keeping their own teeth into old age but in order to continue to maintain healthy teeth and gums, a regime of brushing and rinsing twice a day should be combined with interdental brushing – cleaning between the teeth.

The major cause of tooth decay and gum disease is plaque. The formation of plaque is continuous and its growth cannot be stopped. Whilst brushing controls plaque formation around the surfaces of your teeth, it does not reach between your teeth and that’s why interdental brushing once a day is so crucial.
Cleaning between your teeth is made possible by the use of the following:

> Dental floss
> Interdental brushes
> Single tuft toothbrushes
> Dental sticks
> Rubber tip stimulators
> Irrigation device

Consult your dentist and hygienist to learn more about the right method of interdental brushing for you
