When Patients Refuse to Floss, Recommend Go-Betweens Cleaners
If there’s one fact hygienists know better than anyone, it’s that there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all home care routine. While patients often have good intentions concerning their oral care, their tried-and-true methods for teeth cleaning may fall short. So, it falls on hygienists to recommend the best products for brushing, flossing, and everything in between—with the ultimate goal of keeping decay and periodontal issues at bay.
Part of Sunstar’s growing GUM family of between-teeth products, GUM Go-Betweens Proxabrush Cleaners help patients remove plaque and buildup from hard-to-reach areas. Available in 6 sizes to accommodate patients with healthy gingiva and tight contacts, as well as those with larger embrasures and gingival issues, the cleaners feature a brush head with unique triangular-shaped bristles that help remove more plaque than conventional round bristles.
“I was able to use it on everyone due to the diversity in sizes,” noted Jenna Hebert, RDH, while hygienist Cynthia Sanderson feels that Go-Betweens are a great tool for noncompliant patients or the elderly.
A Simple Routine for Every Patient
To combat the slippery hands and hard-to-reach feeling that are often associated with flossing (or lack thereof), Go-Betweens Proxabrush Cleaners feature a nonslip handle and bendable neck that allow patients to easily reach the back of their mouths, while an antibacterial coating on the nylon bristles keeps the brush clean and hygienic between uses.
A truly universal solution for between-teeth cleaning, Go-Betweens Proxabrush Cleaners are ideal for patients with healthy gingiva, restorations, orthodontics, as well as those who struggle with flossing or flat out refuse to do so.
