Disposable Prophy Angles

Disposable prophy angles are dental disposables, meaning they are single-use and therefore prevent cross-contamination between patients. A prophy angle is used to apply prophy paste to teeth during professional dental cleanings. Most disposable prophy angles are latex-free and available with firm or soft prophy cups. Some manufacturers also produce brush cups. These are helpful when cleaning the grooves of a tooth prior to the placement of pit and fissure sealants. Many disposable prophy angles have an angled neck to provide better visibility and access to posterior teeth.

Disposable prophy angles that don't require prophy paste offer a splatter-free cleaning.

Crosstex, Keystone, Mydent, and Sunstar Americas manufactures this type of prophy angle.
