With periodontal disease now linked to the development of heart disease,[i] dementia[ii] and diabetes,[iii] the removal of dental plaque has become ever more important. Gingivitis develops due to plaque overgrowth and bacterial colonisation in the mouth, if left untreated this can quickly progress to periodontal disease.

The FLEXI range of interdental brushes from TANDEX can help patients remove more plaque than brushing alone. Each product’s handle is flexible, and the brush can be bent into the perfect shape to clean in between the teeth.

FLEXI brushes can be used to easily apply PREVENT GEL too, a product which contains 0.12% chlorhexidine and 900ppm fluoride known for their antibacterial and enamel strengthening properties.

To find out how the FLEXI range and PREVENT GEL can improve the oral health of your patients visit the website today.
