INTERPROX®: INTERPROXIMAL BRUSHES FOR 100% COMPLETE DENTAL HYGIENE

Dentaid News

Recommending elements of interdental hygiene is key to ensuring oral health. Proper oral hygiene habits should include interproximal cleaning elements, since the toothbrush manages to clean 60% of the surface of the tooth, leaving 40%, corresponding to interdental spaces, without cleaning. Incorporating elements of interproximal hygiene ensures complete dental hygiene, therefore preventing various oral conditions and diseases such as caries, gum problems or halitosis.

Identifying the type of space between the teeth is important so as to recommend the best solution. If the space is closed, there is crowding or the gum fills the entire interproximal space, it is advisable to use dental floss or tape. In open spaces,the gum does not occupy the entire space and interproximal brushes are most suitable. In addition, oral irrigators are a good complement to brushing as they allow for in-depth cleaning.


Choosing a quality interproximal brush is essential. The Interprox® range complies with ISO 16409*, guaranteeing secure filament retention and wire fastening for a long-lasting brush. For enhanced comfort during use, the Interprox® brush wire is coated with polyurethane, which protects teeth and gums from injury while also protecting implants. Another feature that makes Interprox® brushes stand out is their white Tynex® filaments which reveal bleeding and their black filaments which highlight areas with dental biofilm so as to make the user aware of the importance of in-depth cleaning; these brushes can also be used easily away from home, thanks to their protective cap.


There are different PHDs (passage hole diameters), which refers to the size of the interdental space, i.e. the smallest space through which the brush can pass. If the PHD required is unknown, it may be best to choose the smallest size (Interprox® nano 0.6) initially and then increase the size if the brush slips through loosely; it is also advisable to visit the dentist for a check up and full diagnosis.
