AbstractAn implement suited for cleaning also interproximal faces at the molars is made of pliable material, and includes a middle portion and two tapering end portions issuing therefrom. The middle portion is formed with a cross section to make it substantially rigid in use, and the end portions are bent in the same direction with respect to the middle portion.The end portions have a triangular cross section adjacent to the middle portion and taper towards the distal ends, where the end portions are very slim compared with the cross section adjacent to the middle portion. At least the side face of the each end portion turned inwards at the bend is roughened.
