Interdental brushes to treat gum disease
Do your gums bleed when you brush your teeth?
Do you have spaces between your teeth and gums?
Interdental brushes are the most effective way to remove the plaque that is main cause of gum disease. Periodontal (gum) disease is not only alarming to find blood when you clean your teeth but does have other far reaching effects for instance there is increasing evidence suggesting that gum disease and heart problems may be closely linked. Researchers suspect that bacteria present in gum disease can travel throughout the body, triggering inflammation in the heart’s vessels and infection in heart valves. Our unique charting system designed and written by Dr Christopher Turner enables you to create your own dental record. The Chooseabrush® pack includes all you need to make the use of interdental brushes part of your daily dental routine.
Why is it so important if you are diabetic?
Do You Know: As a person living with diabetes that you are at 3 to 4 times greater risk of developing periodontitis (gum) disease than a non-diabetic? This rises to 10 times if you smoke.
If you control gum disease it can improve your blood sugar control, reduce your risk of hyperglycaemia, and reduce the risks of other known complications. If you have gum disease it can induce Type 2 diabetes and pre-eclampsia.
It really works!
The Chooseabrush® Interdental Charting System has been developed by Dr Chris Turner, Specialist in Restorative Dentistry.
Using your Chooseabrush® interdental brush charting system is easy
Once your kit has arrived, you can identify your teeth and mark any that are missing using the diagram supplied.
Start between your central incisors and work backwards. Test each space with the brushes until you find the brush size that has some resistance when you clean the space between your teeth.
Mark the colour brush you have found onto your chart to create your unique record. Remember to clean each space at least once a day, following the chart as your guide.

An interesting experience giving me confidence to use the correct size of brush
I have been using the Chooseabrush® system for almost a month. The system is very user friendly and helpful with clear information, colour coding and imagery of the layout of the mouth as well as all the elements needed to work out the right brushes for the spaces between my teeth. I have quickly got into the habit of following the colour chart in the morning and evening and feel confident now that I am doing good for my teeth and gums. Without the system you wonder if this is the case. The chart is easy to use with the colour coding and brushes provided in the kit and there is a very useful day to day calendar on the reverse side of my card. Thanks to Dr. Turner’s Chooseabrush® system I am really feeling so much more confident after years of worry that I am finally getting on top of my gum health.
I have been using the Chooseabrush® system for approx 3.5 weeks. As instructed I have used the TePe interdental brushes after brushing my teeth which for me is minimum 3 times a day! I started the process as instructed by using brushes that moved in and out of the spaces between my teeth. The key is to ensure that the brush has some resistance rather than easily sliding in and out of the gaps between my teeth.
The two TePe brushes that I now use are 0.7mm yellow brush and 0.8mm green brush. Between the two brushes I am able to clean between all my teeth apart from one from tooth which I cannot fit any of the brushes.
Since using this process I have found that my teeth do not bleed upon cleaning at all. What I had also found is as plaque was removed and kept away by using the brushes my gums were less inflamed. This is the first time this has happened as previous to using this system I was never told to clean daily with the TePe brushes – just periodically! I am very pleased with this system and will continue to systematically and diligently use the brushes alongside my electric toothbrush. Thank you Chooseabrush® system!
