Single-Use Prophy Angles for Dental Hygiene Cleanings

Any Dentist will tell you that your oral health is dependent on routine brushing and regular dental appointments where hygiene cleanings, oral exams and x-rays help trouble shoot potential problems. Dental prophylaxis is one of the most common in-office procedures and tooth polishing is a procedure carried out as a part of oral prophylaxis in most dental practices. It is an act of smoothening the tooth surfaces to make it glossy and lustrous.

Used by dental hygienists to polish a patient's teeth, prophy angles integrate a rubber cup into a high torque gear which can be plugged into a low speed handpiece to drive the rubber cup filled with prophy paste to polish the teeth.  The focus of dental polishing today is:
  1. To remove bacterial plaque biofilm and extrinsic stains from the exposed tooth surface
  2. To give the teeth an esthetic appearance
Today's prophy angles are designed to be single-use which saves time and money spent sterilizing metal type prophy angles, and they also weigh much less. Disposable Prophy Angles has improved infection control and ergonomics for the clinician.
 
Hand fatigue and wrist positioning are serious concerns. Handpiece weight can vary dramatically - thirty years ago, polishers weighed as much as 9.5 ounces, with much of the weight concentrated at the motor end, causing unnecessary strain on the user's wrist and forearm. Compounded daily and for years, it can result in repetition type injuries. Unfortunately, many of these metal devices are still being used even though today's models are well-balanced and weigh around 3 ounces.
 
Science and technology have provided dental professionals with efficient products that help preserve patients' dentition and cosmetic restorations, reduce the risk of workplace-related injuries, and provide patients with amazing smiles that they all expect.
