Frequently asked questions about prophy angles for children
Why only one animal design when you can have them all?
The Zooby prophy angles are available in packs of 500 and 100 with an assortment of 5 different animal designs: penguin, zebra, leopard, tiger, and flamingo.
The same soft polishing cup is used for all 5 Zooby prophy angles. It’s designed to hug children’s teeth and keep the paste from splattering excessively. At the same time, it’s also small and slim enough to reach into a narrow mouth opening. The polishers for the Zooby disposable prophy angles are white; except for Penelope, the penguin lady, who has a red beak (= rubber cup).
The Zooby disposable prophy angles are specially designed with an embedded screw to ensure smooth, concentric rotation. This maintains close contact between the prophylaxis polishing cup and the tooth and ensures reliable tooth polishing every time. Each prophy angle is greased to ensure reliable, quiet, and vibration-free operation. The prophy angles sit safely and comfortably in the hand and are operated with high-quality prophy cups.
We recommend a prophylaxis handpiece with a 4:1 ratio or Doriot connection for using the Zooby disposable prophy angles. Doriot connection The disposable prophy angles and the handpiece are thus in perfect sync and enable comfortable prophylaxis treatment. Using a lightweight prophylaxis adapter also minimises hand fatigue.
Take the disposable prophy angle out of the plastic packaging. Place the prophy angles with the embedded screw over the opening of the prophy handpiece. The prophy angle has a small recess at the lower end. Position the prophy angles so that this recess aligns with the slot on the prophy handpiece. Now slowly slide the Zooby disposable prophy angle onto the handpiece. The disposable prophy angle is now ready for use.
Rotation speeds higher than 3000 rpm are not recommended for Zooby prophy angles.

No problem. Zooby offers dental practitioners an inexpensive starter kit. This kit not only includes a lightweight Young Proxeo prophy handpiece but also 500 Zooby disposable prophy angles.

What are the advantages of Zooby disposable prophy angles compared to prophy cups in combination with a prophy angle?
Use the Zooby prophylaxis products to ensure a relaxed atmosphere during individual paediatric prophylaxis. The prophy angles with animal designs enable anxiety-free treatment and create a positive memory for the child’s next visit to the dentist. Replacing the disposable prophy angle is quick and easy. The drive piece, i.e., the prophylaxis handpiece can be prepared for the next use with simple wipe disinfection. The handpiece sleeve is sterilised as needed. Disposable prophy angles prevent the ingress of damaging tooth polish paste into the prophy angle.
Compared to using a standard prophy angle with a polishing cup or polishing brush, you save time and money when using a disposable prophy angle, as you incur no expenses for the preparation of and wear and tear to the prophy angle. It also reduces the risk of infection.
