What are the reasons for using an interdental brush??

Even if you brush teeth several times a day and pay attention to proper dental hygiene, there are areas in the mouth that you can not easily reach with a regular toothbrush. The interdental spaces are to be mentioned in the first place. Equally affected are wearers of solid braces whose wires are also difficult to clean. If this is the case, or if the interdental spaces are only insufficiently cleaned, bacteria remain, which form, for example, from leftovers. As a result, plaque forms – which can lead to tooth decay, periodontal disease and worst case – if not treated by the dentist – to the loss of the tooth. An interdental brush helps prophylactically to prevent this.
