At the recent Greater New York Dental Meeting, Sunstar debuted its new Butler® Prophyciency™ disposable prophy angles, that clean and polish without paste. In addition, the company announced the launch of an easy-to-handle alloplastic bone grafting system.

Butler Prophyciency disposable prophy angles can reportedly save hygienists considerable time by eliminating the need to refill the cup in the prophy angle, as well as the need for the patient to rinse during a cleaning, by providing much better visibility during cleaning, and by simplifying cleanup between patients due to the lack of paste splatter or mess. Butler Prophyciency also has a unique ButlerBloom™ Contouring Cup, designed to effectively clean and polish interproximally, subgingivally and on all facial and lingual tooth surfaces. It adapts to follow contours on all tooth surfaces, and it transitions easily from tooth to tooth.

Sunstar also announced the introduction into the North American market of GUIDOR® easy-graft®, a fully resorbable, synthetic bone graft substitute that helps with stability, osteoconductivity and control of placement. GUIDOR easy-graft is a complete system that can reportedly predictably and efficiently handle all socket preservation and immediate implant needs.

Each easy-graft system is composed of beta-tricalcium phosphate granules coated with a polylactide polymer that are mixed with an N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone liquid activator called BioLinker® to form a permeable, moldable material that hardens to form a porous scaffold. This unique combination of materials provides the foundation for easy preparation, dispensing and shaping. The porosity of the granule supports material resorption and bone regeneration.

“We feel these two innovations will have a dramatic impact on the efficiency of our valued customers,” said Aaron Pfarrer, Senior Director of Marketing and Professional Relations for Sunstar. “Butler Prophyciency builds on our rich heritage of enhancing the efficacy and convenience of hygiene care, while GUIDOR easy-graft will enable us to bring the same degree of ingenuity to periodontics that we have been bringing to dental hygiene for decades.”
