A study[i] found an average of 10 billion bacteria at participants’ interdental sites, a significant proportion of which are known contributors to adult periodontal disease.

Professor Denis Bourgeois, who was one of the authors of the paper, comments:

“Even the biofilm of young, healthy adults contains pathogens that can initiate periodontitis. Given the association of those interdental pathogens with periodontal and systemic disease, the habit of daily interdental brushing may be the easiest way to maintain a healthy mouth and body.

“The Curaprox CPS prime brushes used in the study are able to penetrate 94% of interdental spaces. This allows people to clean interdentally easily and effectively.”  

The Curaprox CPS prime brushes cater to the needs of a wide range of patients, with super gentle and ultra-fine bristles arranged in an umbrella shape for efficient removal of bacteria across the entire interdental space. Find out more today!
