INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE SPOT LESS SYSTEM
The SPOT LESS BRUSH
The SPOT LESS BRUSH was anatomically-designed with a small, cylindrical head - including a rounded end, and a single row of short bristles, so that those bristles will be able to fit behind orthodontic brackets' tie-wings, even if they have built-in hooks on them. This design also permits the head to fit comfortably and well - into the deepest regions of the oral vestibulae. The handle is square - in cross-section, and the bristles are offset/angled at 45 degrees - they're in line with one of the "corners" of the length of the handle. Given this design, when the handle is held horizontally, the bristles will be angled at 45 degrees to the labial aspects of the teeth - in one quadrant, as depicted in the diagram, below. Patients should brush the gingival one-thirds of the teeth in that quadrant, gently and thoroughly, then rotate the handle 90 degrees, to brush the next quadrant, and so on...
B-E-H-I-N-D Y-O-U-R W-I-R-E-S Orthodontic Brushes
Generically known as "interdental" or "interproximal" brushes - an absolute misnomer, for their orthodontic application, our
B-E-H-I-N-D Y-O-U-R W-I-R-E-S Orthodontic Brushes are designed for cleansing plaque from the tooth surfaces directly behind orthodontic wires; thus, their TARGET is their NAME!! Using a gentle vertical motion, patients should brush the sides of each orthodontic bracket, and the adjacent tooth structure, as depicted in the diagram, below. They should then use a standard manual or power/electric toothbrush to eliminate all plaque loosened by The SPOT LESS BRUSH and B-E-H-I-N-D Y-O-U-R W-I-R-E-S Orthodontic Brushes, as well as to brush the remaining surfaces of their teeth, without orthodontic appliances on them.
***PLEASE NOTE***: The B-E-H-I-N-D Y-O-U-R W-I-R-E-S Brush should be inserted into the chamber of The
SPOT LESS BRUSH "handle-first", as in the diagram below, so it doesn't get stuck inside the chamber. If it still
does stick, just close the cap and tap the cap on your countertop, and it will become loosened.
