GUM® Go-Betweens® Proxabrush® Cleaner Refills-Ultra Wide Zoom

GUM® Proxabrush® Go-Betweens® Refills, Ultra Wide, 18 Packs of 2 Brush Refills

SKU# 618PA
GUM® Proxabrush® Go-Betweens® handle and refills are comfortable, easy to use, specially designed handle and brush systems to remove dental plaque from hard-to-reach places between the teeth most commonly missed by toothbrushing alone. Ideal for between natural teeth and around crowns, bridges, dental implants, and orthodontic appliances.

GUM® Proxabrush® Go-Betweens® refills have a precision manufactured brush head with unique triangular bristles that are proven to remove more dental plaque than conventional round bristles.*

The soft nylon bristles have an antibacterial coating** to help keep the brush clean and hygienic between uses.

Four sizes of brush heads are available to fit from the tightest to widest of between-teeth spaces. Ultra wide brush heads are designed to clean the tooth and gum surfaces adjacent to the widest spaces. If in doubt consult your dental hygienist for advice on which sizes are right for your mouth.

Clean between the teeth at least once per day to remove dental plaque from areas not reached by toothbrushing alone and where tooth decay and gum disease often occur!

*Data on file.

**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.

    GUM® Proxabrush® Go-Betweens® Refills, Ultra Wide, 18 Packs of 2 Brush Refills is rated 4.5938 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from DDS I have recommended this for more than 20 years for my patients and for the last 15 years, used these for myself. These brushes have gotten smaller and smaller, to where it is not much different than the tapered 614. The bristles have also gotten much more flimsy where do not hold up but for only a few uses. I really wish you would bring back the big cylinder 618 which distinguishes GUM from all others. So many companies make these small flimsy ones. I was just thinking that I need to research into some other brand after all these years as I need to look for a bigger interdental brush. Hope you will bring back the big cylinder soon. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Wide Tapered So far, I'm not satisfied with the Ultra Wide Tapered proxabrush refills. For many years, I have used the Large Cylindrical Proxabrush refills & have been very satisfied with them. I have had quite a few periodontal surgeries and the Large Cylindrical size fills the large gaps I have between my teeth. Unfortunately, the Large Cylindrical are no longer available. I am trying to use the Ultra Wide Tapered, but quite candidly, they are not much bigger than the "Moderate" or "Wide" refills that I can easily purchase locally. Without exaggeration, I would be willing to pay double the price that GUM previously charged if I could obtain the Large Cylindrical again. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any other company that offers proxabrush refills, so, "I'm stuck."

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from too small Being ultra wide, I was expecting a bigger size--it is no wider than the wide. I have wide gaps between some of my teeth and this won't do the job. But if this is as big as it gets then I have no other choice but to use it. I remember purchasing a refill that was tubular, not conical in shape, and it was wide enough for my gaps. It could not be a shipping mistake since the code for this product is 618 and the ones I got are 618.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost right! GUM used to make the ultra wide Proxabrush in a cylindrical shape which was much better at doing the job. I have had gum surgery and have some quite wide spaces between teeth. Having the entire brush the ultra wide width obviously will do a better job from front to back. I am going to try the short, "convenient to carry with you" ones since they look like they will do a better job for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from most disappointing Please let me join the chorus of complaint at your discontinuing of the 618 cylindrical brush. It's tapered replacement doesn't answer my need. When I called to order, I specified that I wished to buy the cylindrical brush. Very disappointing that the operator did not explain the change in design. I too will look for a competing product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from #618 has changed! If you are a habitual user of this proxy brush head, you will notice that it is now tapered instead of cylindrical (which is evidently no longer made). I prefer the cylinder, but still recommend this product. Also, it is great to be able to order a whole box of 36! Thanks for that, GUM.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not the same 618 I agree with the other reviews, I have used the old barrel 618 for years and it's been great! The new tapered one doesn't fill the spaces so it doesn't clean as well. Since there is no other option currently (please bring back the old 618) I will have to use the ones I just bought.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product not as pictured Dissatisfied! Product received is not the same as product pictured. Product pictured has more substantial bristle material than what was delivered. Product received bristles are somewhat blue in color, much lighter weight and do not have as good cleaning qualities.
