Thornton Bridge & Implant Interdental Cleaners
What took me so long to find these special-use, interproximal dental cleaners? I have been using Thornton 3-in-1 Floss for a long time to clean up excess cement because I love the spongy filament brush. But I have always complained that the plastic threader was not stiff enough to get through tight embrasures. Thornton Bridge & Implant Interdental Cleaners provide a stiffer version that can pretty much get in anywhere and feature a slightly larger, spongy filament brush. However, they do not have a floss section, so I always use Glide® floss (Proctor & Gamble; Cincinnati, Ohio) separately during cement cleanup.
