OHI Special Aids Proxabrush

Most patients feel as if their oral hygiene instruction (OHI) is right and they may not be willing to change.  Now it is possible for the patients to improve with their oral hygiene and to get help while doing this.

A person to change, they need to change their attitudes, belief, and knowledge. The patient should know if their oral health is in jeopardy, if they are suffering severe gum disease, if they are suffering from advanced gum disease or tooth loss. Sometime the gum disease can pose threat to the whole body as well.

  • We make it simple for you with easy tips and recommendations.
  • We modify the oral hygiene instructions in order to accommodate the specific lifestyles, motivation and abilities of the patient.
  • We provide copies of the recommendation.
  • We provide positive feedback with positive reinforcement.
  • We identify areas that may need more attention so you can focus on them better.

What it is Proxabrush?

To achieve better tooth cleaning, it is recommended to use Proxabrush which is around seven inches in its length. The typical brush is curved a little and it has a slip proof rubber on its grip at both sides and it helps to control the grip when cleaning in the teeth. On its top, there is a hole where the brush is inserted. The brushes are also found in different sizes and shapes. The brush has a release lever and the user should use it to press or to remove the head of the proxabrush.


Why do you need Proxabrush?

The proxabrush has been developed for healthy patients who have tighter contacts and they have new design elements which will improve with the use. The flossing is the best way to deal with plaque but most of the time; people do not floss because they do not have enough time. Proxabrush has been proven in removing plaque. It is easy to use, reusable and convenient.

How is a Proxabrush helpful?

It is not easy to get rid of all the plaque off the teeth by normal brushing. Plaque will cause gum disease and decay. When you brush, it is important that you remove plaque away of the teeth. The only reasons why you should use proxabrush is to remove the tartar or plaque away of the teeth as another tool. Having a dental examination and professional dental cleaning is recommended as soon as possible.

The benefits of removing plaque is to prevent systematic and dental disease, it is now being understood by the entire community. However, some daily routines like interproximal plaque removal had not been established by different people. The disruption of plaque or effective removal will not be achieved by brushing alone. The use of proxabrush or any other interdental brush is used as alternative to the flossing and it may be used on daily basis. It can be effective for the interproximal plaque removal compared to flossing as it had been suggested by many studies. Interdental brush uses special shape and size which had been proven to be effective tool to reduce interproximal plaque. Other considerations may include the motivation level of the patient, the right product to use and manual dexterity.

It is important to use Proxabrush if you would like to maintain healthy mouth. There are many people who like to floss instead, however the brush offers a practical and easy alternative.

It is important to know how to clean the teeth and around the gums, in order to maintain a healthy mouth. Many people choose to floss but others use interdental brush which is a more practical and easy to use method. The studies had found out that the brushes are effective way that you can remove the plaque compared to flossing when it is used with normal tooth brushing.

The interdental brush is a brush which has bristle held by the wire. There are specifically shaped handle and short handle which make the gripping easy. There are others that have long handles that look as normal toothbrush. They have been designed to be inserted within the teeth in a gentle manner.  The brush may be used many times and it can be rinsed as other brushes. The brush can be replaced if the bristles have worn out and if the wire had bent.

Who can benefit more from the use of the Proxabrush?

  • People that have limited mobility: when people suffer joint problems with limited mobility can find that the brushes are easy to use and this is especially when they clean their back teeth. The brushes may be a good option for older people who are not able to floss. The brushes will help in cleaning the space found between the gums, implants, bridges and dentures.
  • People who have braces: flossing is not possible for people who have fixed braces, but thin brushes may be used in removing the food or plaque on the teeth and braces.
  • People who have spaces within the teeth.
  • People who do not like the idea of flossing.

Very friendly staff who put up with my inane sense of humor. The entire team team spoke with me 1:1, including: Dental assistants, hygienist, dentist, and insurance admin (explained everything to me in detail including how my insurance works). They explained my x-rays to me, the effects of flossing correctly / incorrectly. I feel like they gave me the education I didn't get as a child on how to care for my mouth, and why it's important. I was doing good stuff for my oral health-- just not correctly or with a positive attitude. GREAT aftercare package.

I am usually scared of going to the dentist for my annual cleaning but I was completely blown away by the amazing customer service from the staff. Julia was extremely helpful and explained my dental coverage and out of pocket costs. Angela did an exceptional job explaining to me about the importance of dental hygiene and actually taught me how to floss properly. The office was extremely clean and upscale. Dr. Bridget was very sweet and great bedside manners. She explained everything about the treatment plan in a very thorough and concise manner. I was extremely impressed by everyone on the office and I cant wait to come back for my next appointment.

From start to finish great experience. Impeccably clean office, high tech tools, & friendly staff. Went to get my top teeth contoured/shaped. They did a Hollywood star job! I now, have a flawless smile. I even went back the next day for a touch-up on one tooth & they took care of it, graciously. If you want quality cosmetic dentistry inside the loop; look no further. These folks are the best in class.

Great place for all your dental needs. Very inviting and friendly staff. They are very knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. I've been looking for a good dentist for awhile while neglecting my oral health, but now I think I've found my place. 10/10 would come back for a follow-up appointment.

Very friendly staff. The hygienist's were so knowledgeable and really took the time to teach you about your teeth, they gave my husband and I "homework" to improve our oral health. Love it! Angela was great, great sense of humor (made me laugh a lot) and very professional. Awesome job Nicole, very friendly and took the time to answer all the questions we had (love she was recommending eateries for hubby to take me :). Julia was great at the front counter very lively and knowledgeable as well. They all really took the time and customized everything for us. Able to get free electric toothbrushes but didn't have any in stock.

Excellent service. Great first impression! Best cleaning I've had in several years, my mouth feels amazing. They even took the time to show me how to brush more effectively. My teeth are back to being pearly white. They were very knowledgeable in regards to my insurance and I've had no issues. The service there is impeccable!

I am not the biggest fan of the dentist, however this was the BEST dentist experience I have ever had! Everyone was so kind and I got everything I needed done in one visit! They provided super helpful insight about what was going on with my teeth and took care of everything I needed quickly. I will absolutely be returning! 🙂

Love the location, the dentist AND the staff. Everyone there is awesome. It's rare that I leave a dentist office feeling just as good as when I arrive. I was sad I didn't get to see Snickers, but all in all I had a great experience my first time here. Glad to finally have a new "home" dentist since moving to Texas.

Beautiful location and office. Very friendly and welcoming staff! I had a great time conversing with them about movies and music. Dr. Nguyen and his staff were very knowledgeable and stressed the importance of making sure the patient knew what their game plan was. The office is very high tech as well so it was super cool to know that I was getting the latest tech being use on me.

The staff is wonderful, very friendly and informative. I love how they not only take X-rays, but also photos of all your teeth and put them on the big screen. They spent as much time as I needed to go over each area and explain specifics of each tooth. I definitely have a greater understanding of what is going on in there and what I need to do. I also love their space, it has a calming vibe with all kinds of artwork on display. You almost feel like you’re not at the dentist! Thank you all so much, I look forward to seeing you all again! (Said no one to their dentist 😉 )
