Cleaning the gaps between teeth is important for the health of your teeth. The spaces between teeth account for 40% of the tooth’s surface. Cleaning the interdental spaces removes both leftover bits of food and plaque. This tartar or plaque has to be regularly removed to prevent cavities and gum disease.

A toothpick is normally used for larger gaps between teeth. A toothpick can remove those stubborn bits of food that you can’t get rid of with a toothbrush or floss. Toothpicks are also ideal for cleaning the gaps or spaces between dentures and the gums.

Dental floss

Dental is used for the very narrow gaps between teeth. You shouldn’t pull the floss through the space between the teeth, but rather move it up and down and don’t forget the part where the gum meets the teeth.

Interdental brushes

For larger gaps or areas under dental bridges, an interdental brush is the perfect tool. These are available in various shapes and strengths.


It happens to everyone. You go to a restaurant and afterwards you are left with food between your teeth. A toothpick is just what you need. Portable metal toothpicks, such as those made from stainless steel or silver, are small, convenient, and can be kept handy in you’re wallet or handbag. Stainless steel toothpicks with screw-on tips (straight or slightly angled). The tips can be hygienically stored by screwing them into the handle. The Sanident toothpick’s flexible silver tip can also be stored in the handle.

To ensure they can get in the smallest cracks, indentations or gaps between teeth, metal toothpicks have a sharp and thin tip. That’s why it’s important to move the tip of the toothpick away from the gums when using.
