The surfaces of our teeth are not cleaned completely only with a brush because it is not able to get their side faces, which are closely adjacent to each other. With a brush, we will be able to clean their facial parts, chewing surfaces and internal (Palatine). In order to remove food residues and remove plaque on the sides, people are used to using special toothpicks in the form of sticks with pointed edges or a thin and strong dental floss. Now dentists are using new technologies in disease prevention and dental treatment. These technologies also concern methods of cleaning.

So, people who have to wear braces to correct incorrect growth of teeth or their curvature, having bridges and prostheses, have difficulties to achieve good cleaning. Ordinary brush can not cope with the cleaning of braces and bridges. Here you will need to use irrigators that clean the oral cavity with a jet of water under pressure. Irrigators are available for sale, but they are sold at a high cost and are not yet widely used.

More affordable devices that cope with hard cleaning are interdental brushes. In the process of cleaning the villi massage the gums well and improve blood circulation. Quality of the materials of their manufacture meets high requirements. They should be durable, environmentally friendly and inert (not subject to oxidation processes in the oral cavity). If the exposed surfaces of our teeth undergo natural purification in the process of chewing, the lateral ones are practically deprived of such a possibility. But the total area of the side surfaces is about 40%.

Just imagine what a convenient place for the accumulation of small particles of food, plaque and the life of rotten bacteria! Interdental brushes are means of a new generation!
