Did you know that approximately 65 million Americans over the age of 30 have some form of gum disease? Many research studies also link gum disease with heart disease, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Scientists believe that inflammation may be the basis for the link between these systemic diseases. It is now known that gum disease is one of the most prevalent non-communicable chronic diseases in our population, similar to heart disease and diabetes. The American Academy of Periodontology has gathered extensive amounts of data and research examining the amount of bacteria and plaque remaining from tooth brushing alone. It has been shown that there is a significant improvement in oral health by using an interdental brush vs. floss in conjunction with brushing. Interdental brushes are simple to use and reach interdental grooves and fissures which can physically not be touched by any other interdental cleaning device or tooth brush. Oral Prevent has designed an ergonomically shaped interdental brush in 8 different sizes. The Smart Grip handles allow for easy access to all teeth especially the hard to reach back teeth without bending the brush. The plastic coated wire prevents injury to gums or damage to implant surfaces as well as around crowns and bridges. These brushes are also useful for anyone with braces or limited motor skills. The double row of bristles ensure a more efficient removal of plaque and bacteria. The cap makes this brush portable, to be used anywhere and everywhere. This is a small brush with BIG effects which everyone loves to use. It is essential to visit your dentist and hygienist regularly. Daily use of the Smart Grip interdental brushes and tooth brushing will change the statistics of gum disease in the years to come. Prevention of gum disease is a lifelong commitment and our Smart Grip interdental brushes will maximize this undertaking.
