Did you know that nearly 40% of the surface area of your teeth is unreachable by most toothbrush bristles?
This means that even if you are the most diligent brusher in the world, you will still be unable to remove plaque-causing bacteria from over a third of your mouth. The only way to reach those tight spaces, then, is to:
- drink lots of water
- floss at least once per day
The Sonicare AirFloss Ultra interdental cleaner, for instance, removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas. **
Remember, cavities and gum disease can form wherever plaque is left to grow and harden, so keeping your teeth healthy means getting to all those hard-to-reach areas, in between.
