How do I know which size tepe brush to use and how do I use them correctly?
@anonfemale - the person who teaches you how to use them (either your dentist or hygienist) will tell you which ones are the right size for you.

It's a good idea to write down this info during your appointment, or get them to write it down for you. Usually, people need to use different size Tepe brushes between different teeth. It might be difficult to remember all this new info without having it in writing!

(P.S. you may know this already, but each size tepe brush has its own colour, which makes it easier to tell them apart)
