Even effective brushing only removes about 60% of the plaque in your mouth, the rest is found BETWEEN your teeth. Your toothbrush only cleans 3 of the 5 surfaces of your teeth, leaving the 2 surfaces between the teeth ignored. Effective cleaning between your teeth is critical for a whole mouth clean and to prevent several oral health issues.
Dental plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on and between your teeth. It must be removed regularly, or it can cause gum inflammation, cavities and bad breath.
