Interdental spaces

Why are interproximal brushes suitable for interdental spaces?

Interdental spaces can be either closed, meaning that the gums fill up all of the space, or they can be open.

To clean open interdental spaces, the use of interproximal brushes is essential to remove all of the biofilm that accumulates therein.

The gums found on the inside of interdental spaces are also more susceptible to inflammation, as there is less keratinisation.
