One important aspect of oral care is cleaning the spaces in between and the sides of the implants. You have several options for cleaning interdental spaces, depending on the width of the spaces and your preferences. The most effective method is to use an interdental brush.
A conventional toothbrush can clean only the front, back and chewing surface of the teeth. Do not forget to clean between the teeth, an area where bacteria is commonly found.
Keep your mouth healthy Bacterial plaque constantly forms between your teeth and remains impossible to reach with a normal toothbrush. If not removed regularly, this plaque can cause inflammation of the gums, cavities and bad breath. From the end of adolescence, clean interdental spaces daily to keep your mouth fresh and healthy.
Do not stop cleaning your teeth if your gums are sore and bleed. Bleeding gums are often a sign of gingival inflammation. If you do not see improvement after a few days however, contact your dentist.
Further solutions for interdental cleaning Fluorine-loaded wooden dental sticks can assist in the protection against cavities. However, dental floss can be very effective, especially where the interdental spaces are very narrow.
For enhanced protection and a smoother feel, use an interdental brush with Interdental Gel Fluoride; which includes chlorhexidine and fluorine gel for inflamed gums and other dental problems.
