Everyone is different

Every mouth, every tooth and even every tooth spacing. This means that the ideal way to clean teeth needs adapting to the user’s individual anatomy, age and abilities. Get advice and training from professionals. You cannot learn how to brush your teeth perfectly, effectively and yet gently just by reading about it.

A professional can help

Your dental professional can tell you exactly which spaces you should clean with floss and which with interdental brushes. Have your cleaning technique checked regularly by your dental hygienist or dentist.
