KEEP YOUR PRACTICE

IN TIP-TOP CONDITION

CLEAN DENTURES WITHOUT SCRATCHING

Poligrip FreshFoam is a unique, foaming denture cleanser that is gentle enough for use with partial or complete dentures.

Your patients may not realise that dentures are approximately ten times softer than natural teeth.

Abrasive ingredients in regular toothpaste can scratch the soft surface of dentures, which can create a breeding ground for bacteria.

Poligrip FreshFoam is non-abrasive to clean the denture without scratching. It kills 99.9% of odourcausing bacteria with around four times more freshening ingredients than some toothpastes, and removes stains and plaque, when used as directed. Most importantly, it offers the convenience of a toothpaste, whilst providing a fresh, clean feeling that lasts,

The AZO range of products provides complete solutions for all cleaning problems.

AZO takes into account the different requirements of individual practices, ensuring it provides efficient solutions for all.

A NEW STANDARD FOR ROTARY FILE SYSTEMS

ProTaper Next from DENTSPLY brings the latest technological advancements that set a new standard for rotary file systems.

ProTaper Next has a unique off-centre, rectangular cross-section that gives the file a swaggering motion for superior canal shaping and debris removal. ProTaper Next also comes with NiTi M-Wire technology that makes its files stronger, more flexible and more resistant to cyclic fatigue.

The biggest advantage of DENTSPLY’s ProTaper Next file system is the added simplicity and efficiency of the files. Most canals can be prepared with two rotary files, and the off-centre design of the files’ cross-sectional bulk leads to greater debris removal and canal shaping from the ‘swaggering’ motion of the rotating giving your patients the confidence they need.

Poligrip also offers the

Poligrip for Partials range, consisting of Clean & Protect denture cleansing tablets and Seal & Protect denture fixative. Even a well-fitting partial denture can increase the mobility of neighbouring teeth. This daily range is specially designed for your partial patients to help them protect their remaining natural teeth while they care for their partial.

Recommend Poligrip to help your patients enjoy a better quality of life with dentures. For more information visit www.gsk-dentalprofessionals.co.uk. files. As always with DENTSPLY materials, you can be assured of excellent quality.

For a streamlined file system that gives consistently excellent canal preparation even in complex cases, turn to ProTaper Next.
