Product Focus: R900 Wingrove Go-To Set
Solid titanium blades will not scratch implants, and the thin design allows for easy access to implant surfaces
Often, the best dental products are designed in close collaboration with the professionals who use them. That was the case—and it literally is packaged in a convenient case—with the R900 Wingrove Go-To Set of titanium implant instruments by Paradise Dental Technologies. The instruments were developed in coordination with Susan Wingrove, RDH, an instrument designer and author of multiple journal articles and the textbook Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist. The R900 Wingrove Go-To Set was designed to provide the best instrument selection to effi ciently adapt to any implant patient. Dental Product Shopper evaluators recently rewarded that effort by designating these instruments a Best Product.
The R900 Wingrove Go-To Set earned the highest marks for ergonomics, specifi - cally the large yet lightweight handle. The instruments’ durability and their ability to work with implants without scratching or damaging the implant rounded out the top 3 highest-rated features. Hygienist evaluators found that the thin design and angle of the blade allow easier access to implants. They also had ample use of the instruments before they required sharpening, and appreciated the custom cassette that’s convenient for sterilization and storage.
Evaluator feedback included: “These are the best implant instruments I have used,” “They are an answer to my prayer,” and “They are my new favorite!” Hygienist Lynn Southerland, who has nearly 30 years of experience, summarized that the instruments are more effective than anything she has used. “It has increased my ability to remove calculus effectively and therefore gave me peace of mind that there won’t be problems in the future,” she said. “These instruments have decreased the amount of time that I spend cleaning implants, helping me stay on schedule. The 3 different scaler designs allowed me to access areas that I couldn’t before.”
