What Are Interdental Brushes?
Usually thin, round or cone-shaped, these brushes have a small head with bristles held on by wire. Some brushes have a short or specially shaped handle to make gripping easier, while others have long handles similar to toothbrushes. They are designed to be inserted between the teeth gently.
Interdental brushes come in different sizes, so make sure to choose one that comfortably fits between your teeth without having to force it. You might like to choose a different size for front and back teeth depending on the amount of space between your teeth.
They can be reused several times and should be rinsed just like a normal toothbrush after going between each tooth. The brushes should be replaced when the bristles are worn or if the wire is bent.
