TePe Interdental brushes are designed to clean the surfaces between your teeth where your toothbrush can’t reach. If you don’t clean between your teeth you miss between 30-40% of the tooth surface – that’s a lot of bacterial plaque biofilm left on the teeth. The bacteria that live in the plaque biofilm (the sticky gel like film that grows on your teeth) can cause inflammation of your gums which may bead to bleeding gums – the first sign of gum disease. It is important to clean between everyday with a suitable oral hygiene aid. Learn more about bleeding gums and gum (periodontal) disease here, where you will find more links to professional guidance on looking after your gums for your oral and overall health.
SIZE MATTERS! If your teeth have tight contact points between them and the gum fills the space between your teeth you may be best to use floss – try GumChucks for easy flossing. If you have space between the teeth – this may be the result of gum disease, ageing or early tooth loss TePe interdental brushes are ideal. Think of how a bottle brush cleans – the bristles must make contact with the tooth surfaces to clean effectively. Always use the largest size that fits comfortably – make sure the bristles touch the tooth surfaces – otherwise you are just removing food packed between the teeth.
Straight brush head, short handle with plastic coated wire for safety and comfort in nine sizes.
