Professional rotary polishing – using the prophylaxis instruments from W&H
‘Proxeo – Prophy for Professionals’ is the slogan that W&H is using to market its products for professional teeth cleaning and periodontal treatment. The medical technology company offers a wide range of solutions for the mechanical removal of hard and soft plaque. All these products have one thing in common: They are extremely effective, are gentle to use, and are designed with the patient’s well-being in mind.
Along with dental care at home, the mechanical removal of hard and soft plaque is a key element of the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) recommendations to substantially reduce the risk of developing periodontal disease. In addition to the W&H Piezo scaler, the Proxeo air scaler and the Proxeo Aura Air Polishing System, the W&H product range also includes rotary polishing instruments that effectively remove plaque, biofilm, and stains by mechanical means with the appropriate prophy cups and brushes, helping to prevent inflammation of the periodontium.
Proxeo Twist LatchShort Polishing System
The professional mechanical removal of plaque and biofilm is an integral part of the prophylaxis workflow in current dental treatment. The Proxeo Twist LatchShort Polishing System from W&H is an innovative product solution that offers users the benefit of significantly reduced working height compared to conventional latch systems. The small head and slim neck of the W&H polishing system provides much better visibility of the treatment site. When used in conjunction with the appropriate prophy cups with shortened shafts, the system makes it much easier to access narrow areas in the oral cavity and the posterior molars in particular. This results in stress-free and gentle treatment, even in paediatric and geriatric dentistry. As for the prophy cups, they impress with their simple paste pickup and distribution, and their gentle polishing of tooth surfaces.
Proxeo Twist Cordless
Proxeo Twist Cordless is the product to choose for wireless polishing. This state-of-the-art system from W&H guarantees maximum freedom of movement and the best polishing results. The LatchShort system can be combined with the Proxeo Twist Cordless, helping to provide a lower working height here too. Users particularly value the ergonomic design of the solution and how easy it is to use. The cordless device feels comfortable in your hand, is perfectly balanced and allows you to be in the perfect position for treatment at all times.
“The new Proxeo Twist Cordless with wireless foot control is highly ergonomic and makes relaxed prophylactic treatment possible for both patients and prophylaxis experts”, describes Libby Grounds, dental hygienist, the benefits of the Proxeo Twist Cordless.
