Interdental cleaning on a scientific foundation

March 12, 2019 | Advertorial

COLOGNE, Germany: Caries and periodontitis are the two most common oral diseases in the world. Periodontitis affects around half of all adults globally, and severe cases are found among 10–15 per cent of the population, increasing with age. The build-up of plaque around the teeth is the most important risk factor for the development of periodontitis. Besides its role in the treatment process, high-quality oral hygiene is therefore of the utmost importance to prevent the disease from developing and to prevent the disease from coming back and causing further bone loss. Studies show that a manual toothbrush used alone reduces plaque scores by 42 per cent on average and does not reach the interdental surfaces. Consequently, additional tools for interdental cleaning, such as floss, toothpicks or interdental brushes, are needed. The recommendation about which tools to use must always be individually tailored and based on clinical experience and scientific knowledge.
