GUM® Aluminum Proxabrush® Handle
GUM® Proxabrush® single-ended anodized aluminum handle with non-slip grip enables interdental cleaning with a variety of brush heads to meet individual needs. The contra-angled shaft uses a similar design to the instruments that your dental professional uses to work in your mouth. The screw-top closure securely attaches GUM® Go-Betweens brush head refills for precision cleaning in hard-to-reach areas.
GUM® Proxabrush® Go-Betweens® refills are a selection of four different diameter brush heads, tight, moderate, wide or ultra wide designed for cleaning everything from the tightest and narrowest spaces through to very wide gaps. The unique triangular-shaped bristles remove up to 25% more dental plaque than traditional round bristles* and have an anti-bacterial coating** to help keep the brush hygienic between uses. The wire brush stem is coated with nylon to reduce the risk of scratching the delicate surface of dental implants and to prevent creating galvanic (electric) shocks that may occur when dissimilar metals come into contact in the mouth (such as around implants, metal fillings and crowns).
Consult your dental professional before using around implants or if in doubt as to size of brush head or cleaning technique.
Perform between-teeth-cleaning at least once per day in conjunction with toothbrushing to remove dental plaque and to enjoy a greater level of mouth cleanliness than toothbrushing alone.

**Bristles incorporate a patented antibacterial agent for continuous bristle protection during the recommended life of the brush. Bacterial growth that may affect the bristles is inhibited. The agent in the bristles does not protect against disease. As always, rinse your brush after use.
