How to use the various triangular toothsticks: Sensydene, TePe sticks, Interdens
6 Reasons Why Dentists Recommend Triangular-Shaped Wooden Dental Sticks!
1. The triangular shape.
Designed in the shape of an isosceles triangle, fit perfectly between your teeth. By placing the base of the triangle against the gum tissue, you can remove plaque from the inner tooth surfaces and massage the gum tissue all in one motion.
2. The tapered point.
The tapered point fits so perfectly between your teeth, no matter how tall or short that space is. Perfect for dislodging food particles and plaque – keeping you clean and comfortable.
3. The wood.
Made of special wood that creates the ideal texture and flexibility when wet, they squeeze in between teeth and remove sticky plaque before it becomes tartar (the stuff your dental hygienist has to scrape off during your cleanings). And the wood is biodegradable and comes from managed forests.
4. They stimulate your gums.
They will remove plaque and food from between your teeth, but that’s only the beginning. The in-and-out motion used also stimulates blood flow to your gum tissue – keeping your gums nourished and healthy.
5. They’re safe.
The flexibility of the wood means they will bend or break if you push too hard – they will never shift or damage your teeth. (Don’t try that with a conventional wooden toothpick!)
6. You’ll actually use them!
They unchain you from your bathroom sink – remove plaque after every meal, on the phone, watching TV, in the car, after you go to bed. Seriously. Anywhere, anytime.
