Piksters interdental brushes are small cylindrical brushes designed to slide into and clean the spaces between the teeth. They effectively remove food particles which cause bad breath, plaque formation and gum disease. The unique design allows Piksters to be carried with you conveniently in your purse or wallet and for use after meals or snacks during the day.
Unlike floss, they have lateral bristles that spring out to engage and remove the plaque in the small crevices in between the teeth. Dentists call these areas of furcations. Flossing tends to clean in a straight line across the two humps on either side of a furcation whereas an interdental brush can spring out and dig into these areas and disturb the plaque.
As they have a stiffened wire core you can clean the spaces between your teeth one-handed, unlike regular floss. This makes it easier for the average person to use. Whatever is easier to do you are more likely to do. For general purpose cleaning sizes 1 to 4 can be used - these are typically used around the side of your mouth and towards the back of the mouth.
