Clinical Tips: ProphyCare
Prophylactic dentistry demands more and better products than ever. Products belonging to the line of ProphyCare are all appreciated by dental professionals thanks to the high quality as well as they all are results of the demand on innovations. Prophy Paste CCS is second to none in performance, handling and dispensing. The unique non-splattering, homogeneous formula does not dry out, liquify or separate. Thick layers of plaque and stains are easily removed leaving a fresh and smooth minty sensation after each treatment.
Select the appropriate ProphyPaste according to dental substrate and degree of discolouration. It is advised to always switch to a separate rubber cup for each finer grit agent. Dispense the needed amount of ProphyPaste in the disposable FixyDap cup and stick to any surface such as a glove or a tray. Thick layers of plaque and stains are easily removed leaving a fresh and smooth minty sensation after each treatment.
For best and long lasting results use at least two different prophy paste RDA values for each treatment - RDA 250 and/or RDA 170 for cleaning and RDA 120 and/or RDA 40 for polishing. It is advised to always switch to a separate rubber cup for each finer grit agent. RDA can be measured on two different scales; 10 or 100. ProphyCare Prophy Paste PRO is measured with the 10 scale and prophy paste with the 100 scale.
Apply polishing cup lightly to the rooth surface at low speed. Use light pressure for the cup to slightly flare and slip into the sulcus. Move the handpiece to adapt rubber cup to targeted tooth surface, including interproximal surfaces. Work from the gingival third to the incisal third of the tooth. The ProphyCare design allows for both interproximal and subgingival cleaning.
The design of the rubber cup with its flared, soft edge facilitates collection of Prophy Paste until the last drop. The interior webbing enhances paste holding capacity and splatter control.
