Take Your Pik!

Everybody knows that brushing is important, BUT toothbrushes alone cannot get into all the gaps between your teeth where sneaky plaque can hide.

That’s where inter dental brushes also known as ‘Piksters’ come in.

Pikster’s are small rounded brushes designed to slide in and clean the spaces between teeth. It has┬átiny bristles on all sides that reach out and help to remove plaque in the small crevices between teeth. They have a wire core which can be bent to get to those hard to reach places right up the back! These small handy brushes can be carried in your wallet or pocket to be used in between brushing.

We recommend Pikster’s to many of our patients that would like a quicker, more convenient alternative to flossing.

There is a range of sizes available for purchase at our practice or in your local pharmacy.
