In the region between two teeth, gum’s shape and surface are little bit different than in areas that are easily visible. These triangle gaps between two teeth are filled with the part of the gums (gingiva) which has the shape of a pyramid. It is called interdental papilla. In simple terms – due to its location in teeth gaps, the gums are less protected from the effects of bacteria from dental plaque. Therefore, it’s cleaning is very important, because inflammation of interdental gingiva ( gingivitis) first starts in these areas.
Because your toothbrush cannot reach the interproximal space of your teeth, it is important to use tools, such as floss or an interproximal brush to clean in between your teeth. This, along with regular brushing and dentist visits will be the best way to avoid an interproximal cavity.
