Parkell, Inc. recently introduced The Prophy Pencil, a new air-polishing device that features a disposable, syringe-like tip and a rinse control. After polishing several teeth, the operator simply presses a small bar on the handpiece to wash away the spent sodium bicarbonate.

The long, plastic tip, which can be bent for access to hard-to-reach surfaces, reportedly allows exceptional control of the polishing slurry. The interior design is said to feature a liner-flow pattern that dramatically reduces clogging and powder surges.

The pencil requires no installation. It simply connects to an existing air/water handpiece connector and hangs on the unit like a handpiece. Separate models are available for two-hole and four-hole connectors. Everything except the powder reservoir and hose is autoclavable.

The prophy pencil comes with a three-month, money-back trial, plus a one-year warranty.
