Daily interdental cleaning is key for oral health. It helps prevent gum disease and tooth decay and also promotes fresh breath. The gold standard for cleaning the surfaces your toothbrush can’t reach are interdental brushes where there is space to fit. This may not work for you – you may not like the sensation or have the room to use them. Whatever the reason you may prefer these Eco friendly floss picks and some form of interdental cleaning is always preferable to no interdental cleaning. Can’t use something directly between teeth? Try a Waterflosser.
The bottom line? You need to regularly and effectively disrupt and remove the bacterial plaque biofilm at a level that keeps YOUR mouth healthy, without doing any harm to the hard (tooth) or soft (gum) tissues. For some people this will mean cleaning between once or more times a day. For others it may be a couple of times a week. This varies depending on your risk of a disease/condition developing now.

Use daily before brushing or at a different time. Use a fluoride toothpaste and toothbrush to clean all surfaces of every tooth and around the gum line. Spit out after brushing but don’t rinse all the paste away – let the fluoride work for longer.
