What is "SOLO PROPHYLAXIS"?

Can you clean the shoes by stacking them next to each other?

They can only be partially cleaned; the side remains uncleaned. The tooth surface is concave in the molar area, as well as between the teeth, so when cleaning with a normal toothbrush, only a part of the tooth surface is cleaned. A tooth cannot be taken in your hands like a shoe and cleaned on all sides.

Cavities in the tooth (caries) are formed between the teeth or the toothed surfaces (fissures) of the teeth, which are more difficult to clean and form plaque. “SOLO SWING” a single- toothed toothbrush has a shape that can effectively remove plaque from each tooth.

If the gaps between the teeth are not being cleaned, holes occur in the teeth, inflammation of the gums, which can turn from gingivitis into a more serious gum disease - periodontitis. Dental floss can be used for interdental cleaning, but due to the anatomy of the tooth, cleaning with dental floss is not sufficient. SOLO-STIX. The gaps between the teeth may vary, so the size of the cross-tooth brushes is determined and a dental hygienist is found.

SOLO-STIX interdental brushes are made of a special surgical wire (a wire that contains the bristles of the brush) which is strong enough and thin enough to fold well and avoid tooth and gum injuries.

The wire has a special coating suitable for cleaning tooth gaps in the implant area. Brush bristles are special plans, but multilayered so that cleaning is gentle but efficient.
