Practicon has released the SensorGuard, a dental product meant to reduce the possibility of damage to expensive digital sensor cables by encasing the cable at the sensor with a tough polypropylene shell. The slip-resistant spiral slit design winds onto sensor cables and protects against strong bite forces. The reusable 3-inch black guards come 12 per pack.

For 35 years, Practicon has partnered with dental professionals to advance patient care, increase productivity and profitability, and heighten professional enjoyment by bringing “practical innovations” to dentistry, the company says. For more information, visit or telephone (800) 959-9505.
