What are they?
Interdental brushes are small conical brushes ideal for cleaning between your teeth, much like dental floss. This is particularly important for preventing gum disease in these hard-to-reach areas.
When to use an interdental brush
They are especially helpful for cleaning around orthodontic braces or splints, as well as those areas you just can’t reach with a toothbrush. Use daily as part of your normal dental care, or from time to time if you are prone to getting food caught between your teeth. You can keep one handy as they are small enough to carry in a pocket or handbag.
Ask your dentist to recommend the right size for you.
