Photo 2ContacEZ, Vancouver, Wash, recently introduced its Hygienist Strip. Developed over years of clinical research by Daniel Kim, DDS, FAGD, and his hygienists, this new Strip is designed to remove extrinsic discoloration from interproximal surfaces without causing damage to tooth enamel. The nonabrasive, flexible, ultrathin, stainless steel strips are designed to clean proximal contact areas of tough coffee, tea, tobacco, and red wine stains quickly, safely, and easily to ensure patient satisfaction and save hygienist chair time.
