Interdental Aids

Interdental aids are used along with toothbrushing for the removal of plaque. It helps individuals begin a regimen of interproximal plaque removal. In determining which alternative method is most appropriate for you, the following criteria should be used:
  • Your periodontal condition (including anatomical challenges of the root surfaces and type of interdental embrasures),
  • Restorative work,
  • Age,
  • Motivation,
  • Manual dexterity.
All methods of interdental cleaning should be done one or two times per day with emphasis in the evening.
You should use the interdental aids before toothbrushing.
