Piksters Interdental Brush Size 1 Purple 10 pack

Piksters are an Interdental Brush that very effectively cleans the gaps between teeth and removes decaying food particles which may cause bad breath, plaque formation and gum disease.



Description and use

Piksters are like a toothpick with bristles and these bristles have the capacity to expand into the indents on the teeth surfaces, particularly at the gum line of molars and premolars. Most people find Piksters easier to use than floss a they can be used one handed and they really give you a 'just cleaned' feeling. People that have implants, crown and bridgework, braces or periodontal disease need to pay special attention to these areas and Piksters makes this job a lot easier. Toothbrushes and floss are often not as suitable in these situations as they have difficulty gaining access.


Choose a size that inserts without force. The correct size will fit easily. Do not bend the handle back and forth against the brush head when the brush is inserted. Back Teeth: Use one finger to push the very tip of the brush head over to an angle of approximately 45-90 degrees. Pushing the tip will avoid a sharp bend where the plastic meets the wire and reduces stress and breakage in the metal. Insert the brush SLOWLY with a gentle twisting or wriggling action - this will ease the brush in so that the wire does not buckle. Do not straighten the brush after it has been bent more than a few times as this will stress the wire and increase chance of breakage. Front Teeth: Insert the brush head straight in line with the plastic handle, using a gentle twisting or wriggling action.
