Lunos for premium prophylaxis

The Lunos prophylaxis system from Dürr Dental offers a range of products to help with all aspects of the prophylaxis session.

The Lunos Prophy Powders Gentle Clean and Perio Combi, as well as the MyLunos powder jet handpiece, ensure that patients receive an air-polishing treatment that is both effective and comfortable.

The MyLunos handpiece is ideal for reprocessing manually and automatically and can be disassembled into its component pieces for placement into an ultrasonic bath and sterilisation unit. The handpiece's precise balance allows for ergonomic, fatigue-free working, while the convenient exchangeable chamber approach gives much flexibility while saving a tonne of time. The powder container may be easily changed on the handpiece, preventing the inconvenience of having to stop treating the patient to complete a time-consuming refilling operation. Powder containers are available in four colours: blue, orange, mint green and purple. These different colours can be used to help with the organisation and planning of prophylaxis treatments. For example, the container colours can be assigned to certain treatment rooms or specific powder variants.

Lunos Prophy Powders Gentle Clean and Perio Combi are the latest-generation of low-abrasive prophy powders made mostly of the water-soluble disaccharide trehalose. As an abrasive material, Trehalose is gentle on surfaces while still providing effective cleaning and this leads to more comfort for patients and minimal invasiveness during treatment. Additionally, Trehalose's excellent solubility protects suction systems and preserves their value. It is ideal to offer different flavours or a neutral option during prophylaxis treatments for patient comfort, accommodating different tastes and preferences while considering those who have allergies.

Lunos Prophy Powder Gentle Clean is available in the flavours Neutral (for patients at risk of allergies), as well as Orange and Spearmint. It is suitable for supragingival cleaning and removing extrinsic discolouration for general hygiene appointments, around orthodontic brackets or before fissure sealants. The 30 μm particle size of Lunos Prophy Powder Perio Combi makes it perfect for recall appointments. It effectively removes biofilm subgingivally, makes it easy to clean around implants and removes slight discolouration supragingivally. This neutral-tasting powder is ideal for patients who are sensitive to flavours.
