The new Ultra Tight size is ideal for healthy patients and will help improve compliance, effectiveness and the overall comfort of the patient

Chicago, IL—Nearly three-quarters of patients will exhibit periodontal disease at some point in their lives.[1] To continue the innovation in its line of custom fit interdental brushes that help prevent disease, Sunstar GUM is excited to introduce its new size of Proxabrush Go-Betweens Cleaners– Ultra Tight. The new Proxabrush, available now, is ideal for healthier patients with tighter contacts, and features several new design elements to improve use. According to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), flossing is the single most important weapon against plaque;[2] however, most people find that their reason for not flossing is due to lack of time. Proxabrush Go-Betweens are clinically proven to remove plaque as well as string floss and are convenient, reusable and easy-to-use.

Highlights of the newly designed Ultra Tight Proxabrush Go-Betweens include:

  • More Plaque Removal. The re-designed Proxabrush family of interdental brushes has been constructed to remove up to 25 percent more plaque with new unique triangular bristles. Additionally, it stays clean between uses through an antibacterial agent that has been incorporated into the bristles. The central wire of each brush is coated for added comfort and to help prevent galvanic shock.

  • New Flexible Handle. The new, flexible handle has been ergonomically designed for better comfort, control and grip in order to make it easier to use. The bendable neck and longer length also makes it easier for patients to clean their posterior teeth.

In addition, Sunstar will be applying the new design elements to each of the existing Proxabrush Go-Betweens Cleaners sizes: Tight, Moderate and Wide. These redesigned Proxabrushes will be available in June.

As the number of cavities among Americans increases, dental professionals such as Dr. Richard Demke, DDS, Sr. Director, Technology and New Product Development at Sunstar, recommend that patients take a proactive approach to their daily dental hygiene regimen.

“Proxabrush Go-Betweens Cleaners are recommended for all patients given that they come in multiple sizes to meet every patient’s needs. The Ultra Tight size will be especially beneficial to healthier patients with tighter contacts, to use either as an add-on or alternative to floss,” says Dr. Demke.
