The ProxyBrush™ is designed to remove plaque and debris in open interproximal areas (areas that are very large and located between the teeth). These brushes are particularly helpful in cleaning the spaces that exist between caps and bridges.


Place the soft nylon filament brush into the handle.

  1. Moisten the brush and insert it into the interdental areas (embrasure spaces that exist between each tooth and its neighbor).
  2. Move the brush in and out several times in each interdental space (also known as an embrasure). Make sure to clean the brush by holding it under running water during each use. This is necessary in order to remove debris and plaque that may be deposited during the mechanical cleansing of the spaces.
  3. Clean the brush thoroughly after use and allow it to air dry. The brush may be used several times before it is necessary to replace it. Discard the brush when the filaments become loose or deformed.
  4. There are several types of Proxybrushes. Each type has its own particular area of use. There is even a portable brush as shown in the accompanying diagram. If you have any questions as to the best one to use in your particular set of circumstances, please ask your dentist.
