Interdental Brush FAQ
WHY ARE STAINO INTERDENTAL BRUSHES UNIQUE?
Ultra-fine white aluminum oxide - a proven dental stain removing abrasive - is blended within the nylon bristles for faster more effective plaque and stain removal while simultaneously whitening tooth surfaces. Other manufacturer's (Sunstar G.U.M., DenTek, Piksters, etc.) interdental brushes are just nylon and work solely on the basis of friction.
IS THE ALUMINUM OXIDE ONLY IN THE GREEN-COLORED BRISTLES?
No, it is blended in all the bristles, green and white. The green band simply makes it easier to identify a genuine STAINO Interdental Brush.
WHY ARE STAINO INTERDENTAL BRUSHES BETTER?
The ultra-fine white aluminum oxide in STAINO brushes remove plaque faster and difficult extrinsic stains.
WHAT TYPE OF STAINS DO THEY REMOVE?
Extrinsic (i.e. surface) stains commonly caused by tobacco, coffee, red wine, cola, red foods and the like.
ARE STAINO BRUSHES SAFE?
