Interproximal cleaning aids are important for successful plaque removal.
Interproximal cleaners or other appliances that reach more of the proximal surfaces are vitally important to the successful oral hygiene treatment plan. Interproximal brushes, available in various sizes and shapes depending on contour or access needs, are effective to clean around complex restorative work seen in older adults.
Access will dictate which type of aid to recommend; several newer brush styles can improve interproximal cleaning. Again, the treatment plan must be customized to suit individual need.
