The gap between the two teeth in anyone’s mouth is known as an interdental gap. These tiny gaps usually occur due to the varying size and shape of teeth. But since these interdental spaces are so small, the conventional toothbrush can’t properly reach and clean these gaps. As a result, food particles that get lodged in those spaces aren’t cleaned out properly, and hence become a breeding ground for bacteria.
These bacteria, accumulated in the interdental spaces, start releasing toxic waste in the form of acid. This acid is usually responsible for degrading the enamel, irritating the gums, and consequently causing tooth decay over time. Not only that, but the bacterias residing in your mouth often lead to bad breath. This is a byproduct of the bacteria living and breeding inside your mouth.
In order to avert these side effects, we need to physically disrupt the bacteria colonies from accumulating in between our teeth. For this we need -

How To Improve Your Oral Health Using A STIM Interdental Brush
For a while now, STIM Interdental Brushes have been integrated into the daily oral care routine of the general populace. These brushes help in cleaning the slim gaps between the teeth which can become a breeding ground for bacteria. In this comprehensive guide let us take a look at interdental brushes, and how they can be beneficial for maintaining oral health.
Why Not Just Use Floss?
While floss has its own fair share of benefits, the STIM Interdental brush refills have their own very distinctive set of qualities. While floss can expertly remove the bacterial film in the straight interdental spaces, the interdental brush specializes in reaching every little nook and cranny of the interdental space and scrubbing off the tough bacterial film present on the interdental surface. An interdental brush can prove to be extremely beneficial in cleaning uneven surfaces, as the bristles can reach around the bumps of the surface and provide optimal cleaning.
When To Use A STIM Interdental Brush
Interdental brushes are suitable for all people. Since interdental brushes access the area which is inaccessible to normal brushes, they are the best preventative measure for oral care and diseases. We recommend the following brushing routine to our customers:
Always clean your interdental spaces once a day, before you go to bed at night.
Make sure you cover all interdental spaces, both in the upper and lower jaw
To properly clean your interdental spaces, gently push the interdental brush in the space between your teeth. Then follow that with a gentle in and out motion before proceeding to the next interdental space
In case you’ve ever used an interdental brush and experienced bleeding gums, then this bleeding might be a symptom of ongoing gum inflammation. The bleeding will start to slow down within the first 7 days of interdental brushing.
