For Karey Kershner, RDH, BS, the true testament of how well NUPRO® extra care prophy paste from DENTSPLY Professional worked came in the form of a compliment from a patient.
"I remember one patient who told me he was amazed after I used it during his cleaning. He said it was the most comfortable cleaning he had had in a long time and would definitely be back," Kershner recalled. "This was from a grown man who hated to come into the practice. I thought he was being a little wimpy, but I have learned that this is a product that definitely helps people with their sensitivity."
As a dental hygiene instructor at the University of Maine-Augusta, Kershner says she recommends NUPRO® extra care prophy paste from DENTSPLY Professional to all of her students to use when they start practicing.

Previously marketed as NUPRO® Sensodyne® prophy paste, the manufacturer says the name change to NUPRO® extra care is intended to more accurately reflect the multiple clinical benefits NUPRO® extra care prophy paste delivers with just one application, allowing clinicians to do more than just polish.
According to DENTSPLY Professional, the formulation remains the same, so clinicians and patients will continue to enjoy the many benefits they love. NUPRO® extra care prophy paste cleans and polishes teeth and provides immediate and long lasting sensitivity relief at the same time, saving clinicians time, money and effort.
NUPRO® extra care prophy paste is available in four flavors and two grit selections: polish (fine-medium grit) or stain removal (medium-coarse grit). A non-fluoride choice is also available. NUPRO® extra care prophy paste is Gluten-free, Dye-free, Sodium Laurel Sulfate-Free.
