Science behind how splatter guard works:
Lotus DPA is a unique, innovative and revolutionary product that addresses a long term unmet need for the dental hygiene industry. The splatter created by rotating cup has been a chief safety concern among the hygienists due to HIV and other airborne viruses. Dentists are concerned with increasing cost of the disposable DPA.
Lotus DPA addresses both performance, safety and cost issues. In order to make it splatter free, the prophy angle requires the following:
- Cup that accumulates and retains the saliva
- Splatter guard that eliminates the accumulated saliva from the outside of the cup during each rotation.
- A precise positioning of the wiper and a unique shape with thin blade that would remain stiff during the procedure, stay in constant contact with the Cup and yet be flexible enough for the patient comfort and effective splatter reduction.
