What Is Interdental Brush?

 

If you have spaces between your teeth or are wearing braces, it is recommended that you clean them with interdental brush. Usual size toothbrush is unable to reach these spaces, so you need the right tool to remove that piece of food trapped in between the teeth or wires.
If left uncleaned, the food may cause cavities and gum problems.
There are many types of interdental brushes available, so choose the right size for the job.
