How to clean in between Your teeth

HOW TO CLEAN BETWEEN THE TEETH. 


     Cleaning between the teeth is also known
as inter dental cleaning. Decay usually starts on the chewing surfaces of teeth and at the contact point between the teeth. 

     Plaque and food particles stick to the teeth in 
these areas. The bacteria in plaque are able to 
convert these food particles into acid. This acid is 
the major cause of tooth decay and gum disease. 
Therefore, you need to be aware of the fact that 
plaque is being formed continuously. Plaque 
formation and growth cannot be stopped. It can only 
be controlled by regular daily brushing, flossing and 
the use of other dental aids. This must be 
accompanied by a six monthly dental scaling and 
polishing of the teeth. 

      There are two essentially daily routines that will prevent decay and gum disease. 


They are to brush your teeth and clean between your teeth, at least twice a day. Tooth bmshing is necessary, but it cannot reach between the teeth. Cleaning between
the teeth is made possible by the use of the
following :
1. Dental floss
2. Inter-dental brushes
3. Single tuft
4. Tooth brushes
5. Dental sticks
6. Rubber tips
7. Stimulators
8.Irrigation devices.
