At the drug store there’s so much choice this day in age, you don’t really know what’s the best choice for you.  You can buy interdental brushes in all sorts of different shapes, colours, sizes and materials. Eline and John are therefore testing two different interdental brushes this time. What’s convenient, the regular straight interdental brush by Lactona or the diabolo shaped Circum interdental brush?

Circum vs. Lactona ragers

Circum vs. Lactona ragers

Appearance Circum

Eline:bluem test panel
The interdental brushes and their handles look good and sturdy, 5 stars!

John: 
A different look for interdental brushes than I’m used to. It’s an interdental brush consisting of a handle and a separate brush. Though, nicely designed so therefore 4 stars.

Appearance Lactona

Eline: 
The Lactona interdental brushes are relatively long unlike the other interdental brushes. They’ve no handle. Also I am missing a piece of protection so you can easily take it with you.

Johnbluem testpanel
The interdental brushes come in a plastic bag and have no solid, thick handle. Therefore I give three stars.

User convenience Circum

Eline:bluem testpanel
It’s easy to use. The interdental brushes lock securely in position and are easy to swap. After one week you’ll notice that the interdental brush is more difficult to use. The brush is too flexible. Making it harder to position it between your teeth. Then it’s time to replace it.

John: bluem test panel
Again, I need some getting used to that the interdental brush consists of two pieces. It’s very convenient to use. You can place a brush on both ends, so you can easily switch between two sizes.

User Conveniencee Lactona

Eline
Good quality! The interdental brushes are long so you can reach anywhere you want and the flexibility is very good.

Johnbluem testpanel
I’ve fairly large hands whereby these interdental brushes aren’t convenient to hold. I miss a handle to hold the brush or a holder to put the interdental brushes in. It’s rather handy that they’re quite long.

Result Circum

Eline:
I’m a fervent user of interdental brushes and I don’t notice a difference in use between the one I currently have and the Circum. Although it cleans your teeth more efficiently because of the brush shape. Regular interdental brushes are often straight or tapered; This interdental brush is in the form of an hourglass.

 

John: 
In the first days my gums were sensitive. I contacted blue®m and they advised me not to use a interdental brush that’s too thick. I also applied some oral gel on the interdental brush before using it. After about three days of use of the Circum interdental brushes with oral gel, my gums improved a lot.

Result Lactona

Eline:
My gums feel nice, 4 stars.

 

 

 

John:bluem testpanel

I don’t notice much difference to my gums. I feel like they take away as much plaque as my toothpicks.

 

End result Circum

Eline : 
I give the interdental brushes 4 stars: they’re sturdy and easy to use.

John:  
Normally, I use toothpicks and I now I’ve noticed that this isn’t enough to clean my teeth. Through the use of interdental brushes my gums became a lot calmer than they were before. I find it very convenient that the brush/handle is so firm, this means much more comfort. I’ll keep using these interdental brushes.

End result Lactona

Eline:bluem test panel
I prefer the Lactona interdental brushes compaired to those from Circum because of their length and flexibility. 5 stars! Maybe some form of protection to take it with you, would be a great idea.

 

John: bluem testpanel
I don’t recommend these interdental brushes if you’ve fairly large hands. To fragile. Not a fan: 2 stars.

It’s extremely important to clean (between) your teeth daily. The blue®m test panel gives the most points to the Circum interdental brushes. These and the Lactona brushes are available at the ‘Alles voor je tanden’ webshop
