Interdental cleaning is a key part of any daily oral hygiene routine. It is especially important if you are at risk of gum disease or developing cavities between your teeth. If you are new to interdental cleaning you may find the gums bleed – this is because bacteria in the plaque biofilm that gathers on teeth is irritating the gums and causing inflammation. Spit out and keep going! You will find this will stop with regularly interdental cleaning. Healthy gums don’t bleed! If your gums continue to bleed, in spite of your best efforts contact your dental team. Clean between teeth before brushing unless otherwise advised by your dental care team. This means that your toothpaste ingredients can reach all tooth surfaces for maximum benefit.
Clean between teeth either before brushing or at a different time of day – it takes effort so try to fit it into your daily routine.
Use your interdental brushes dry or if high risk of tooth decay use a remineralising product on the brushes e.g. GC MI Paste plus
