As we learn more about our teeth and how to look after them, the more new products are designed to help us in all our oral hygiene plights and one such product you can buy in Leeds and that does an incredible job is the inter-dental brush. A lot of food debris can get caught between the teeth and gums and a normal toothbrush is just too big to get into these delicate areas- inter-dental brushes are designed to just that. They are soft because you are worker in sensitive areas of the mouth, but they also come in different, colour coded sizes in order that you get the one that suits these areas of your mouth although each space is going to be different from tooth to tooth so a range of sizes may be preferable (it would be wise to ask your dentist about the size of brush suitable for the inter-dental spaces in your mouth). They should be worked in gently, never forced, and worked around to remove any food and to avoid inflaming the gums. One of the advantages of an inter-dental is that they can be bent at different angles in order to reach difficult areas; another is that they can be great to use with therapeutic gels or herbal remedies in order to soothe sensitive or inflamed areas of the gums and once you’ve cleaned, you simply rinse the brush out between your thumb and forefinger- they are superb in the fight against plaque and gum disease and are just another fantastic product in a large range, all designed to help you maintain a high level of oral hygiene.
