I have 2 Py-co-Twin twin Head Interdental brushes, one still in the box and I have been using the other one for years. Mine are made in Poland. I had no idea that these are unique or old. I purchased them at a drug store about 15 years ago when they were going out of business. I initially purchased the Butler brush and brush heads that are currently on the market. The Butler brand does NOT compare to the Py-co-Twin. Too bad I cannot purchase them any longer.
