As the number of cavities among Americans increases, dental professionals such as Dr. Richard Demke, DDS, Sr. Director, Technology and New Product Development at Sunstar, recommend that patients take a proactive approach to their daily dental hygiene regimen."Proxabrush Go-Betweens Cleaners are recommended for all patients given that they come in multiple sizes to meet every patient's needs. The Ultra Tight size will be especially beneficial to healthier patients with tighter contacts, to use either as an add-on or alternative to floss," says Dr. Demke.
