Prophylaxis treatments without aerosols, or other ways prophylaxis can work. How can prophylaxis succeed if manual instruments are to dominate suddenly? Birgit Schlee DH report on their experiences and about their new prophylactic routine in their practice.
”Since my training as a DH, I have mainly been working with XP instruments from American Eagle Instruments. Why? Because I have always focused on minimally invasive work. The precision design of the working tips offers me enormously highly tactile sensitivity when curetting deep pockets so that I often manage without a probe. I also find added value in the ergonomic feel of the instruments as seen in their extremely lightweight and grippy handle, meaning that your hand doesn’t get tired or strained so quickly. In active PA therapy, I like to work with a large and varied range of curettes so I therefore find the color coding on the plastic handles optimal as that allows me to identify the instruments quickly during treatment. This is already proving to be a real advantage in these difficult times, because time, efficiency and effectiveness are now in great demand.Birgit SchleeDH
