Butler® Prophyciency™ Prophy Angles
A smarter and more efficient way to clean and polish teeth
For more than 80 years, Sunstar Americas, Inc. has been providing high-quality oral care products to consumers and dental professionals worldwide under the GUM®, Butler®, and Guidor® brand names. At this year’s American Dental Association Annual Meeting, Sunstar launched the Butler® Prophyciency™ Prophy Angle with the ButlerBloom™ Contouring Cup, a patent-pending, revolutionary new prophy angle that is a smarter and more efficient way to clean and polish teeth. Butler Prophyciency is the only prophy angle that cleans and polishes without using paste because it has polishing and stain removing agents incorporated into the cup.
Because Butler Prophyciency with Butler Bloom Contouring Cup features built-in polishing and stain removing agent in the cup, no prophy paste is required. It has a flexible, flower-shaped cup that easily contours to all tooth surfaces during the cleaning process—facial, lingual, interproximal, and subgingival. It provides superior stain removal compared with the leading brand of prophy angle used with the leading brand of coarse prophy paste.
Since there is no need for prophy paste, this patent-pending technology virtually eliminates splatter and provides dental professionals with better visibility during cleaning. And because dental professionals do not have to refill from a prophy paste cup and the patient does not have to rinse, the prophylaxis process goes more quickly, with less mess to clean up. This all leads to a more satisfying cleaning and polishing experience for the patient.
In a recent product use test and survey, 71% of dental professionals who used Prophyciency thought it would be beneficial to their polishing procedure and patient care. Additionally, 78% of patients surveyed in this use test said they preferred Prophyciency cleaning and polishing versus the traditional method of using prophy cups and paste (Sunstar Americas, Inc. data on file).
“We’re thrilled to offer dental professionals an innovative product that will be a ‘game changer’ for their practice,” said Evelina Leece, senior marketing manager, Sunstar Americas, Inc. “Butler Prophyciency Prophy Angles provide superior benefits to both the practitioner and patients and are sure to revolutionize the prophylaxis procedure.”
Butler Prophyciency Prophy Angles with ButlerBloom Contouring Cup are available in two versions—Clean & Polish and Polish only. The Clean & Polish version has additional polishing and stain-removing agents incorporated in the cup for more effective stain removal. The Polish version is designed for patients with low to no staining who just need a nice polishing. It also has the ButlerBloom Contouring Cup flower shape, designed to more easily adapt to the shape of the tooth surface.
