#tuesdaytip: how to use a proxy brush

 

Here’s this weeks Periodontal Associates – The Dental Implant Team’s #tuesdaytip on how to use a proxy brush. This how to video shows how proxy brushes keep teeth clean and gums healthy. Proxy brushes can be used with dental implants too.

The use of the proxy brush is demonstrated by Ally, who at the time of this video was Dr. Doug Heller’s assistant, who is now a hygienist here.

Correct way to floss around a dental implant #tuesdaytip

 

If you have dental implants make sure you are flossing around it correctly. To removed excess bacteria, plaque and debris from dental implants, pull the floss inwards towards the post of the implant and use a back and forth sawing motion instead of an up and down movement.
