Which tooth surfaces you can't clean with a toothbrush?

5 April 2018

Just under half of the surfaces of your teeth can't be reached with a toothbrush - because they're the surfaces between your teeth!

This is why flossing is an important part of cleaning your teeth - you can't get a toothbrush between your teeth, but you can get dental floss between them.

Flossing as part of your dental routine helps prevent plaque building up, gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath.
