CHICAGO, Illinois--A recent study conducted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center's College of Dentistry showed that Butler Paste-Free Prophy is less abrasive on composite resin and enamel and provides a higher-gloss finish than the paste products tested.
Butler Paste-Free Prophy also maintains the original finish and gloss on porcelain, according to the results of the study.
Caren M. Barnes, RDH, MS, co-principal investigator and professor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center's College of Dentistry noted, "This is the first time we have seen a paste-free product actually perform as well as or in some cases better than traditional paste products."
Specifically, the study found that:
* Butler Paste-Free Prophy is safer for polishing cosmetic restorations than traditional prophy paste
* Butler Paste-Free Prophy is less abrasive than prophy paste on composite resin and the enamel
* Butler Paste-Free Prophy provides a higher gloss finish than prophy paste on composite resin and enamel
* Butler Paste-Free Prophy maintains the original finish and gloss on porcelain (does not damage porcelain restorations)
