The daily use of interdental brushes to clean between your teeth eliminates bad breath, keeps your mouth healthy and gives you a beautiful smile.
How often should you clean your teeth with interdental brushes? An experienced dental hygienist suggests to use an interdental brush to clean between their teeth once a day in the evening before using a toothbrush. By doing your incidental clean before bed, it removes all of the food residue that has built up over the day. If left overnight, this food residue will turn into plaque, and then if you forget to do it next morning, or even the next day, it will mix up with salvia and turn into harmful tartar.
This stuff needs to be scraped off by your dental hygienist and can lead to more serious or oral health conditions such as gum disease and cavities. Not to mention bad breath! If you can do it once a day, you’ll keep your teeth and gums healthy, and have fresh breath to boot.
60% of the bacteria in your mouth live on your tongue. Use a tongue scraper to clean your tongue twice a day before brushing your teeth with a toothbrush. Studies have shown that using a tongue scraper to clean your tongue reduce bacteria production by 75%, compared with 45% when using a toothbrush to clean it.
How often should you change your interdental brush? An intervention brush can be used until the bristles are worn and out of shape. However, I really don’t recommend this. For the best cleaning result, you want to brush to be in perfect shape and the bristles to be intact enough to clean all those hard-to-reach places. So, change the brush once a week. You don’t want all that teeth cleaning diligence to be let down by a worn-out brush, right? Clean your interdental brush with water after use this removes any food residue or bacteria they may be left on it, and helps keep the bristles in the best shape.
By now you are probably used to using interdental brushes to clean between your teeth. If you’re just starting out, keep at it. If you can be persistent and practice using your interdental brush for just five minutes a day, it will soon come naturally to you and fit in easily to your daily teeth cleaning routine. I recommend practicing in front of the mirror in privacy!
