      The new LatchShort Polishing System compared with the standard latch system

      More space and better view

      The Proxeo TWIST LatchShort Polishing System is a particularly smart solution for Prophy polishing: The small head with the optimally matched Prophy Cups significantly reduces the working height.

      You gain as much as four millimetres
      compared to standard latch systems.

      Main advantages at a glance

      • Optimum access thanks to lower working height
      • Better visibility thanks to the smaller head
      • Change at the push of a button
      • Long service life owing to sealing system
      • Ideal speed for gentle and efficient polishing/cleaning
      • Ease of maintenance and hygiene-friendly
      • Thermodisinfectable and sterilisable
      • Access all areas

        Access all areas

        The combination of the slender W&H Proxeo TWIST LatchShort contra-angle handpiece with its small head and the Prophy Cups with a shorter shaft make access easy, particularly in narrow areas and to the posterior molars.

        The smaller the head, the shorter the Cup and the thinner the neck, the better the view of the treatment site.

      • Comfortable

        Comfortable and simple

        The easier the access the more comfortable the treatment.

      • Inspired by Prophy

        In addition to the Proxeo TWIST contra-angle handpiece, W&H is now also offering Prophy Cups and Brushes. 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 up into the sulcus.

        The new Proxeo TWIST LatchShort Prophy Cups in various hardness levels and Brushes are now available for optimal removal of biofilm and discolouration.

        All Proxeo TWIST LatchShort Prophy Cups have a shorter shaft for an even lower working height.

        The Proxeo TWIST LatchShort is the first system with a low working height and a push-button. With the working height as much as 4 mm lower than standard latch systems, there is more space and a perfect view of the treatment site.

        The best of both worlds: the unique combination of a low working height and convenient push-button chuck system combines the advantages of screw and latch systems: easier access, better view and maximum comfort on the one hand and the ease of changing polishing Cups and Brushes on the other.
