Regular interdental cleaning is recommended for maintaining periodontal health,[i] which can be especially compromised by conditions like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.[ii] [iii] Special care can be implemented most effectively with FLEXI interdental brushes used with PREVENT GEL from TANDEX.

FLEXI interdental brushes come in 11 different sizes, and the brushes can be bent into the perfect shape to reach all the gaps that toothbrushing alone can’t reach.

Many medications and chronic health conditions affect the production of saliva, which can lead to demineralisation, and can impact on the management of bacteria.[iv] Adding PREVENT GEL, containing fluoride and chlorhexidine, to their FLEXI brush, strengthens enamel, and keeps the mouth cleaner for longer.

Find out more about how the FLEXI range and PREVENT GEL from TANDEX can improve the oral health of patients.
