What size of interdental brush do I need?
Did you know that brushing alone only removes about 60% of the plaque on your teeth? The rest of the plaque is found BETWEEN your teeth. Dental plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on your teeth. It must be removed regularly, or it can cause gum inflammation, cavities, and bad breath.
TePe® Interdental Brush Original comes in nine sizes, which might seem overwhelming at first. We recommend asking your dental professional to help you find the correct size or to find your most suitable size yourself using a TePe® Interdental Brush Original Mixed Pack.
Start with a small brush size and change to a bigger one if you don’t feel any resistance from the bristles. Do not force the brush into a space; work it in gently or choose a smaller size. Often, you need more than one brush size, because the spaces between your teeth differ throughout your mouth.
We have created a sizing guide to get you started.
