Zooby – more fun during prophylaxis

Child-oriented, sensitive treatment is important, especially during individual prophylaxis. Not every child likes to go to the dentist. However, these feelings can be prevented or changed by turning the visit to the dentist into an exciting encounter with flamingos, zebras, and leopards.

For this purpose, there are a number of helpers who turn children’s visits to the dentist into a positive experience, such as the hygienic disposable prophy angles with animal designs for tooth polishing.

As the name “disposable prophy angle” suggests, it is a single-use product that combines a prophy angle and a dental prophy cup in a single product. Used together with the prophylaxis paste, the disposable prophy angle removes plaque and staining from teeth and facilitates surface smoothing and biofilm management for children and adolescents. Rotating polishing, i.e., polishing using a prophy angle with rotating prophylaxis cups or brushes, is often considered an important supplement to application with air-powder-water devices, as biofilm often remains on the teeth even after application.

Open wide – no problem with the fun prophy angles in animal designs

Disposable prophy angles with animals printed on them are a convenient and hygienic way of getting a thouroughly clean surface polish in children. The professional and mechanical removal of tartar and plaque is considered an especially preventive precautionary measure to prevent gingivitis and, later, periodontitis and/or peri-implantitis.

Involve young patients in their prophylaxis treatment and offer them their choice of different animal-themed disposable prophy angles before polishing their teeth. Here, for example, is Francesca the flamingo lady, who wears a pink gown. Or Penelope, the penguin with the red beak (= prophy cup). Tiger Talon, Chase the leopard and Zoe the zebra join in on this fun animal party. Together, they relax the treatment atmosphere and enable stress-free tooth polishing. And the fun isn’t complete without tasty paediatric polish pastes like melon, chocolate, and more.

The child-oriented, slim disposable prophy angles with animal designs help you get children to open their mouths wide (wider!) and allow you to optimally reach areas in the mouth that are difficult to access.

The fine ribbing at the lower end of the disposable prophy angles improves the grip for the user, which prevents wrist fatigue. The angle of the polishing head can also affect comfort significantly during tooth polishing. A disposable prophy angle with a round and small polishing bowl facilitates patient comfort and optimises the view for the practitioner during polishing.

No allergens in paediatric disposable prophy angles, either

Allergen-free material is very important, especially for children and adolescents with allergies. Many prophylaxis polishers contain latex. If you choose a latex-free polisher, you won’t run any risks with patients who may have an unknown latex allergy. BPA (Bisphenol A) intolerance isn’t uncommon nowadays, either, which is why BPA-free prophy cups should be used for individual prophylaxis.

Frequently asked questions about prophy angles for children

Can I buy Zooby disposable prophy angles with only one animal design?

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.

Are there any differences in the polishing heads of the Zooby disposable prophy angles?

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.
