Interdental brushes are used to clean in between teeth that ordinary toothbrushing can’t reach. With the use of this type of brush, gum disease can be prevented by eliminating food particles and interproximal plaque.
Interdental cleaning is the method of cleaning between your teeth; thus, your dentist may recommend you to use interdental brushes if interdental cleaning is advised.
Instead of using dental floss, use interdental brushes for cleaning wide gaps between adjacent teeth. Insert the brush into the gap between the teeth. Place the interdental brush close to the gum margin. Manoeuvre the brush back and forth to scrub neighbouring tooth surfaces.

Medically referred to as gingivitis, gum disease is the chronic soreness and inflammation of the gums that typically results from bacterial infection. If not treated promptly, gingivitis progresses to periodontitis, which causes aggressive damage to the soft tissues and supporting bone structures of the teeth. Among the most prominent signs of gum disease is the shooting dental pain that is often associated with having sensitive teeth.
