Designs of interdental brush

Which kind is suitable for you?
Choose an interdental brush that provides the most snug interdental fit. An interdental brush should be easily inserted into the interdental space and it fills up the space with no strong resistance.

Points to note

  1. If there are interdental spaces of different widths in the mouth, you should use interdental brushes of a few different sizes to clean the space.
  2. Don't put an interdental brush into the interdental space forcefully, it may damage your gums.
  3. You should clean the interdental brush every time after use. Leave it to dry and save for next time use.

Replace with a new brush when the bristles are worn or deformed.
