Gum Disease

A healthy tooth. Plaque builds up gum and bone may begin to recede. Sometimes the gum recedes with the bone and sometimes it doesn't. Either way the tooth may become mobile.

Interdental Brushing

The TePe interdental brush is used to clean in between teeth. Turning the brush on insertion will help access. Used daily, it removes plaque and food debris where your usual brush cannot reach. For spaces at the back of the mouth, bend the brush in a slight curve but never at right angles this will help you access the more difficult-to-reach areas. A choice of 8 colour-coded sizes is available to help clean different sized spaces.

Interspace Brush

Periodontal disease causes pocketing around the necks of the teeth. Left undisturbed plaque bacteria thrive in these pockets causing the pockets to deepen. A standard toothbrush is not able to access these pockets. The TePe Interspace brush can access these pockets and disrupt bacteria. Regular use will discourage disease-causing bacteria from accumulating.

Mini Flosser

Cleaning between the teeth is an essential part of a daily oral hygiene regime. Conventional flossing can be difficult especially when the teeth are very close together. The Miniflosser can help gain access to the interdental areas with floss. A Specially designed bite plane allows you to gently ease the floss between the teeth. Plaque in the interdental area can be dislodged with a gentle backwards and forwards motion. Visible plaque will be removed.
