An Interproximal Brush is a thin tiny brush that you use to clean food and debris out from between your braces brackets. (The word Interproximal means “the space between teeth.”) Interproximal Brushes come in different thicknesses and styles. Some are straight, and others are tapered like a Christmas tree. It is a good idea to use an Interproximal Brush to clear as much debris from your braces as possible before you brush and floss your teeth.
