The right application & selection of the right size
A healthy, radiant smile is a real eye-catcher and contributes to your self-confidence. In order to maintain this smile, conscientious oral hygiene is essential. In addition to daily, thorough brushing of teeth and choosing the right, sustainable dental care products, cleaning the interdental spaces plays a crucial role. In this blog post, we will show you how to choose and use interdental brushes correctly to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Paperdent's innovative interdental brush is made of FSC-certified paper. The flexible brush head is made of stainless steel and castor oil filaments.
Why interdental brushes?
Plaque and food debris can accumulate in the spaces between your teeth, where toothbrushes struggle to reach. Interdental brushes are an excellent solution to deep clean those hard-to-reach areas. They reduce the risk of tooth decay, gingivitis and bad breath. They are also totally practical to use because they are particularly handy.
Buying interdental brushes: What size and shape?
Our interdental brushes are available in three different sizes, S, M and L. Properly sized interdental brushes require light pressure when inserting, without force or injury. If you don't feel any resistance at all, the brush is too small. Different sizes are often necessary because the spaces between the teeth vary. Your dentist can also advise you on choosing the right size.
Use of interdental brushes
After choosing the right size of interdental brush, the fun can begin!
Insert the interdental brush carefully into the space between the teeth & slowly push it back and forth between the teeth. In particular, be careful not to apply too much pressure to avoid injuring your gums. Clean all the spaces between your teeth and rinse the interdental brush under running water after each use.
Replace the interdental brush once the bristles become worn or bent.
When you first start using interdental brushes, it is normal for your gums to be a bit sensitive at first. Don't worry, this should subside after a few days.
When is the best time to use the interdental brush?
We recommend using interdental brushes daily for optimal oral hygiene. It is best used in the evening, before bed, after brushing your teeth. By cleaning the spaces between your teeth every day with interdental brushes, you effectively remove plaque and food particles that have accumulated throughout the day, thereby reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath.
