Proxeo Twist Cordless

The new freedom of rotary polishing

  • Inspired by Prophy professionals

    The Prophy Angle Cups offer a smooth surface on the edge
    for gentle cleaning into the sulcus, Nubs on the outside which reduce splattering of the paste and polish the interdental space at the same time. The special internal fins ensure easy pickup and targeted application of paste.

  • Small head and thin neck

    for an optimum view of the treatment site and better accessibility of hard-to-reach areas, such as the molar and tuber regions.

  • Cordless and ergonomic

    The cordless, ergonomic design means that the handpiece can easily be rotated 360 degrees in the hand, enabling dynamic adjustment of the working position.

  • Allows you complete freedom

    Twist and turn the handpiece at will and change your treatment position as needed for better access and an unrestricted view.

        • Prophy Angle Cups

          Prophy Angle Cups

          W&H offers the appropriate disposable prophy angles in various hardness levels for the Proxeo Twist Cordless Polishing System. They were designed in consultation with Prophy users. Great emphasis was placed on features such as optimal adaptation, simple paste pickup and distribution as well as gentle cleaning into the sulcus.

          Bernhard Eder
          Strategic Product Manager
          W&H, Bürmoos

          The cordless Proxeo Twist offers more freedom of movement and comfort during treatment. We also paid particular attention to the weight. Compared to a contra-angle handpiece with an electric motor, the cordless Proxeo Twist weighs less than half as much and therefore minimises wrist fatigue when polishing.

          Monika Riedl
          Dental hygienist, Munich

          The cordless Proxeo Twist eliminates the stresses and uncomfortable aches that are usually caused by the tensile strain from a cable.
          • One control unit – two devices

            The new W&H prophylaxis solution presents itself as convenient, wireless and efficient. From now on, the PB-530 Proxeo Ultra Piezo scaler and the wireless PL-40 HW or
            PL-40 H Proxeo Twist Polishing System can be controlled using just a single wireless foot control. This not only makes it more convenient to operate, but also ensures more efficiency in working process.
