Flossing or interdental brushing? 🤔 Studies showed that interdental brushes are significantly more effective and less aggressive than floss. Dentists also point to the fact that floss can cut into gums and damage them, while the interdental brush doesn’t do that. However, some places will only allow access by floss, and your dentist will indicate this if needed. Interdental brushes go between your teeth and destroy the structures of the biofilm. A simple in-and-out movement is usually enough. The brush is then rinsed clean and can be reused. Unlike dental floss, interdental brushes have bristles that get into all corners and spaces and clean out the plaque. This makes them more effective than floss.

Checklist: 5 things to check before buying a new toothbrush. ✅ Is it soft? Use soft brushes to minimize the damage done to your teeth and gums. ✅ How dense are the bristles? The denser the bristles, the more efficient your cleaning. ✅ Is it small enough? A small head will make it easier to reach back molars. ✅ What’s the angle? A slight tilt will help you reach back molars. ✅ Do you enjoy it? Make sure brushing is a joy every time.

Considering interdental brushes? Ask your dentist to choose the right one for you 💡 Every dentist has a proper tool that helps them measure precisely your interdental space and match it with a proper type of interdental brush. You’ll get a recommendation for the exact size of the brush and maybe even some samples to try at home. It’s a good idea to try using your new interdental while still in your dentist’s office. That way, you’ll make sure you’re doing it right and not damaging your teeth and gums. Feel free to ask any questions and get familiar with your new interdental before taking it home.

Four things you need to know about the gentle whitening Curaprox 'Be You' toothpaste 👇 Glucose oxidase – a natural enzyme contained in the paste – turns sugar and oxygen into hydrogen peroxide, tackling discolouration and staining. Hydroxylapatite fills in the cracks and open dentine channels to prevent new discolouration particles from sticking to the surface of the teeth. Plus, it reduces sensitivity in exposed tooth necks. As a low-abrasive toothpaste, CURAPROX BE YOU is gentle on the enamel. It contains no SLS, no triclosan and no microplastics. It comes in six different juicy flavours.

Child unwilling to brush. Should you negotiate? 🤔 “We sometimes assume that small children are as smart and conscious as us grown-ups. But long-term thinking, willpower and discipline are very hard-to-master skills at an early age. Some parents believe that they can explain to a 2-year-old the need for brushing and oral hygiene. So, they tend to wait for the child to give their consent. But since the child does not give it, and the parents don’t want to put pressure on the child, the teeth are left unbrushed. This is clearly not the way to establish a healthy routine. Before roughly age 3 we need these short-term tactics to establish routines and rituals: games, quests, stories and challenges.” 👉 Read more on: https://gently.curaden.com/how-to-get-your-children-to-brush-teeth/

Should parents finish brushing after their children? (Yes!) “I strongly support parents helping to brush their children’s teeth all the way until the children are eight years old. A small child won’t be able to properly brush and clean out all the germs at an early age – at least, it’s very challenging. I explain to them that at 4 years old their child is unable to follow all the steps to good cleaning. Here is what I do: I show both the parents and the child the places loaded with plaque. I make them understand that this can be avoided if they do it together, as a team. I present the brushing techniques to both parents and children so the small ones know and practise, but the parents should definitely finish it.” 👉 Read more on: https://gently.curaden.com/how-to-get-your-children-to-brush-teeth/
