This brush works for the following:

  • implants
  • attachments for overdentures
  • fixed braces
  • along the gum line
  • emerging or partially erupted teeth
  • misaligned teeth
  • removing surface stain
  • removing sticky plaque

How to use the Compact Tuft Brush

Due to its versatility, instructions for using the compact tuft specialty brush will be unique to your situation. Watch the video on the Compact Tuft Brush to see demonstrations on how to use. Below are some tips for common situations.

  • When using along the gumline, hold the brush tip at a 45 degree angle towards the gum line, moving the tip gently back and forth.

  • When using on the top of the tooth, hold the brush tip at a 90-degree angle towards the biting surface of the tooth. Move the brush tip gently with small, circular movements. This will clean the grooves and help prevent cavities. This works for emerging teeth or partially erupted teeth.

  • When cleaning around orthodontic appliances, implants, or attachments for overdentures use minimal pressure to flare the bristles outwards moving in a back and forth motion.
