A listing of featured products.


Sunstar Americas Inc, Chicago, has debuted its new Butler Prophyciency™ Prophy Angle with ButlerBloom Contouring Cup. This prophy angle incorporates both polishing and stain-removing agents right in the cup—eliminating the need for prophy paste. The patent-pending technology features a flexible, flower-shaped cup that adjusts to all tooth surfaces for a superior clean. Removal of prophy paste from prophylaxis improves operator visibility and virtually eliminates spatter. In addition, Prophyciency Prophy Angles decrease the need for patients to rinse, which quickens clean-up time and reduces mess. They are available in two models—Clean & Polish and Polish.

The single-use plastic tips are durable and can be recycled. Free samples are available. (888) 276-7783;
