Maintaining a healthy mouth calls for cleaning between your teeth and around your delicate gumline. If you find flossing difficult, you have an easier alternative with an interdental brush.

Brush up on the Benefits of Interdental Brushes

Most people think that flossing is their only option to clean in between their teeth, and many find flossing to be a real challenge. Luckily, the fast and easy alternative to floss is an interdental brush. These are very thin brushes that have a small head with bristles attached by a wire. Some have a specially shaped handle intended to make them easy to hold, while others have long handles like toothbrushes. They are inserted between the teeth to gently and easily clean. Affordable dentists have long recommended these brushes because research has shown they actually remove plaque more effectively than regular flossing and brushing. They can be used several times, but should be replaced when the wire gets bent or bristles become worn. Ask your dentist in Indiana where to find them near you. 

When Interdental Brushes are Best

Affordable dentists suggest interdental brushes to people with different issues, including:

  • Limited Mobility Most people with joint problems, age-related conditions, or other limited mobility issues find interdental brushes much easier to use than regular floss. Ask your dental clinic for a lesson on how to use them.
  • Dental Work – Do you have dentures, bridges, or implants? These brushes can reach into the tight spaces between all of your dental work.
  • Gaps in TeethHaving large spaces between your teeth can make flossing very difficult because you may not clean teeth properly. To solve this problem, affordable dentists recommend using an interdental brush to completely remove food and plaque.
  • BracesThe brackets and wires of braces make flossing basically impossible. But interdental brushes can maneuver around braces to remove excess debris from both your teeth and your braces. Ask your dentist in Indiana to teach you to use them correctly, so as not to damage your braces.
  • An Aversion to Flossing If you’re ready to toss the floss because you find flossing hard or uncomfortable, ask about an interdental brush at your dental clinic – you’ll love how fast and easy it is.
