SAVANNAH, GA (March 21, 2017) – Brasseler USA®, a leading manufacturer of quality instrumentation, is pleased to announce the expansion of its popular ImplantPro® family of products with new ImplantPro® Titanium Probes. A reliable alternative to plastic probes, ImplantPro Titanium Probes are ideal for use on both implants and natural dentition.
Designed with a winning combination of innovative design and superior ergonomics, ImplantPro Titanium Probes feature precise, black color markings on a smooth surface for a more gentle diagnostic evaluation and improved patient comfort.
“Our new titanium probes are both unique and versatile. Until now, colored plastic probes were the only alternative to stainless steel probes but they’re not designed for long-term use and must be replaced frequently to ensure the accuracy of the markings.” remarked Brenda McCarson, RDH, BS, Brasseler USA’s National Manager of Hygiene. “These titanium probes are ideal for all diagnostic examinations, eliminating the need for different probes for implant maintenance patients, and have the same durability as stainless steel.”
ImplantPro Titanium Probes are made from non-heat-treated 6Al-4V titanium, keeping the Rockwell C hardness at a low 25-31 HRC and comparable to most implant abutments, then coated in bright zirconium nitride for superior color contrast. All feature Brasseler USA’s distinctive, lightweight PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) handles for outstanding ergonomics.
Three single-ended probe marking styles are available:
Michigan “O” Probe with Williams markings (1-2-3-5-7-8-9-10) Order # TICPOW
Marquis Probe (3-6-9-12mm) Order # TICP12
UNC 15 Probe (1-15mm) Order #TICPUNC15
