Icon interdental brushes are manufactured in the UK and come in the same sizes as TePe – PLUS a white size which is finer than the smallest TePe.
We know that the cost of interdental brushes can add up over time. Interdental cleaning is a key factor for preventing gum inflammation (gum disease/periodontal disease), preventing cavities and keeping breath fresh.
Using the correct size to reach the surfaces your toothbrush can’t reach. The aim is to breakdown the plaque biofilm the the ‘in between’ surfaces of teeth so the bristles must make contact to clean thoroughly. Sometimes cleaning between every space between teeth will require a number of different sizes -and the shape and space between teeth can change over time. Not sure what to use?

Interdental cleaning should be completed BEFORE toothbrushing. This is so that the fluoride and other active ingredients in your toothpaste remain around the teeth for longer, providing maximum benefits. After toothbrushing spit out toothpaste but don’t rinse. If you are using a mouth rinse, rinse with it at a different time of day to toothbrushing. This will ensure a healthy environment in the mouth over as much of the day as possible.
