Taking care of your teeth at home is an essential part of maintaining good oral health. An oral hygiene routine that prevents the harmful build-up of plaque will help you to keep using your natural teeth for many decades. You reduce the risk of bad breath, gum disease, and tooth decay when you keep your mouth clean.
However, some teeth are harder to clean than others. Because every tooth is differently shaped, and they don’t always emerge in the most convenient positions, awkward spaces can form. These are the spaces your toothbrush finds hard to properly cover. Maybe one tooth is slightly in front of another, or there’s a tiny gap between molars that seems to attract tiny particles of food. Conventional toothbrushes have a hard time removing plaque from places like these. Over time, the plaque hardens into tartar, which is very difficult to remove, and can lead to decay and gum disease.
