Interdentals

The prevention and management of gum disease is a lifelong commitment and depends on the daily mechanical removal of plaque, through toothbrushing and interdental cleaning [1]. The evidence shows that gum disease can only be managed with good compliance [2].

 

The key is to recommend tools that patients will be willing to adopt and use. While flossing might be a long-established and well-known interdental cleaning method, flossing effectively is difficult [3]. Studies have demonstrated that easier-to-use interdental brushes and rubber interdental picks are associated with greater compliance, efficacy and outcomes compared with floss [4] - [7].

Leverage ease of use to help patients adopt interdental cleaning

GUM has developed a simple recommendation that allows oral care professionals to consider their patient’s periodontal health status (healthy or not) and then match it with their patient’s behaviour and motivation to propose a solution that has a good patient fit and is more likely to be adopted. We call it the ’Oral health ease-of-use ladder’.
