Interdental Cleaning

TePe’s selection of interdental brushes offers an option for every need – make your choice among a variety of sizes and models. The interdental brushes are developed in collaboration with dental experts to ensure the highest utility and quality, in every little detail.

What is an interdental brush?

An interdental brush is a small brush specially designed for cleaning between your teeth, where a regular toothbrush doesn’t reach. Using an interdental brush every day, as a complement to tooth brushing, is an easy and efficient method to keep your gums and teeth fresh and healthy. Cleaning with an interdental brush prevents gum inflammation, cavities and bad breath.

TePe’s interdental brushes are available in several color-coded sizes and models (see all): - TePe Interdental Brush Original: straight brush head, short handle, nine sizes. - TePe Interdental Brush Soft/Gentle: straight brush head, short handle, Soft/Gentle filaments, six sizes. - TePe Angle™: Angled brush head, long handle, six sizes.

Cleaning between teeth

Your regular toothbrush only cleans the front, the back and the biting surface of the tooth. Don't forget to clean the surfaces between the teeth, where the bacteria hide.

Keeping your mouth healthy

Bacterial plaque constantly forms between your teeth and is impossible to reach with a regular toothbrush. The plaque must be removed regularly, or it can cause gum inflammation, cavities and bad breath. In the late teens it is time to start cleaning between the teeth every day in order to keep your mouth fresh and healthy.

Don't stop cleaning between your teeth if your gums are sore and bleed. Bleeding gums are often a sign of gum inflammation. If you don’t notice an improvement within a few days, contact your dental professional.

Interdental cleaning options

There are several ways of cleaning between your teeth, depending on the size of your gaps and what you prefer yourself. The most effective method is to use an interdental brush. TePe offers interdental brushes in nine sizes to fit different interdental spaces.

Dental floss can be effective when the interdental spaces are very tight. This is often the first option when you start flossing in the late teens (or earlier if recommended by a dentist). A preloaded floss holder, TePe Mini Flosser™, is an easier way of flossing. Dental sticks are another alternative.
