The most common oral diseases start between the teeth.
Both caries and gum disease can be successfully prevented by daily interdental cleaning.
TePe Interdental Brushes are available in several sizes and with a choice of texture to suit different needs.
Most people need several sizes for optimal cleaning in different areas.
Choose the size or sizes that fit you, or ask your dentist/hygienist for advice.
Use your interdental brush every day, preferably together with TePe Interdental Gel for extra protection against caries.
The original range of TePe Interdental Brushes comprises nine sizes to fit narrow and wider interdental spaces.
The colour coding helps you to find the right size.
The four smallest sizes are equipped with a flexible neck.
Choose a brush size that will fit your interdental spaces.
Very often more than one brush size is needed.
If you are not sure, let your dentist or dental hygienist choose the right size(s) for you.
Don’t use toothpaste, since it contains abrasives.
Instead, apply TePe Interdental Gel with Fluoride, which is specially designed for easy use with TePe Interdental Brushes.
Use the interdental brush once a day, preferably in the evening.Change brush when it is getting worn. Use a straight brush for the front teeth.Insert the brush gently between your teeth. Do not force the brush into a space; work it in gently or choose a smaller size. Move the brush full length back and forth a few times. Between the back teeth, where the cheek sometimes makes it difficult to reach, access may be improved if you slightly curve the soft neck by adding pressure with your finger. To make the brush last longer, do not straighten or bend at another angle.
