New ProFlare Offers Improved Polishing Efficiency With Better Ergonomics

Michele A. Fagan, EFDA, RDH, BS, on the ProFlare™ prophy angle by Premier Dental

As a hygienist with a career spanning 30 years, I've had the opportunity to use an assortment of prophy angles, and not all are created equal. After performing prophylaxis using the ProFlare from Premier Dental, I can confirm that Premier has designed an exceptional prophy angle with several outstanding features, including compatibility with most cordless and air-driven corded handpieces; a unique internal cup design to effectively hold paste and reduce splatter; a smooth, quiet gear mechanism; and a small head and thin neck for better vision and easier access to difficult areas. It also requires less pressure and minimal wrist movement, improving ergonomics.

The new ProFlare articulating disposable prophy angle has a unique internal cup design and an innovative pivoting feature to allow easy gliding over surfaces for complete coverage. The cup's thin edge and optimal flaring capacity allows for better stain removal and polishing in interproximal areas and beneath the gingival margins.

How does ProFlare's unique pivot and flare cup help achieve access to all areas?

It adapts to the tooth, providing maximum coverage and a smooth transition to each surface. The soft, flexible cup with its thin edge glides with ease to all surfaces. The pivot and flare design allows maximum adaptation to interproximal and subgingival areas.

How does the ProFlare contouring cup allow for more efficient polishing?

The ribbed design of the soft, flexible cup retains the prophy paste. The cup contours to each tooth and stays in contact with the tooth surface longer with each movement, which ensures more coverage and uniformity of the paste.

How does the cup lead to better ergonomics?

The soft texture and flared edge gives the clinician the ability to access more surface and achieve longer contact time. This allows the clinician  to reduce the need for numerous shifts in hand and wrist movements. A reduced effort in polishing and less wrist motion is an improvement to ergonomics.
