Disposable Prophy Angle Reduces Splatter

Ultradent ProductsUltrapro Tx Sweep DPA disposable prophy angle is designed to reduce splatter, which is a concern for dental hygienists during polishing. According to the company, 80% of hygienists report at least a moderate amount of splatter while using their current prophy angle. After switching to the Ultrapro Tx Sweep DPA, five out of six hygienists experienced a significant reduction in splatter, and 95% said they encountered little to no splatter compared to the former angle, Ultradent says. 

The Ultrapro Tx Sweep DPA’s performance upgrades come from the unique brush guard attached near the head of the angle, effectively sweeping away saliva and prophy paste as it accumulates, the company reports. This method significantly reduces splatter by 95%, Ultradent adds. The flexible bristles of the brush guard are designed to prevent splatter before it gathers by efficiently stopping saliva and paste from collecting and roping around the outside of the cup. To reduce prophy paste waste and keep the treatment field clean, the Ultrapro Tx Sweep DPA sweeps excess saliva and paste back toward the tooth. This allows hygienists to continue working, with no need to refill the cup with additional paste.
