Recently, I’ve noticed that some food gets stuck between my arch wire and teeth, and I can’t get it out easily.

The little brush thingie, aka the little Xmas tree, to the rescue!

I had to do some furious googling to figure out what this thing is called, officially. Looks like proxy brush or interdental brush.

See photo below for an action shot (from this website.)

I’ve only used the ones that came in my original care package from my doctor. And I realize that I left it out of my photo of my travel kit, but I do have one in there, just in case.
