Cleaning between teeth

Prevent the buildup of plaque between your teeth

Effective cleaning between your teeth can help prevent the development of oral disease. We recommend using an interdental brush daily. Interdental brushes come in a range of sizes, so it is important to come to the surgery to be fitted for the appropriate size and pick up a free sample. If you'd like to try interdental brushes we would recommend TePe Easy pics, widely available in stores or from ourselves.

You or your dentist may find that the gaps between your teeth are too narrow for effective interdental brushing. In this case, the traditional dental to floss may be the most appropriate way clean between your teeth. Dental floss can be found in most pharmacies.

Our advice is to discuss the best way to clean between your teeth with your dentist at your next appointment.
