Pivot or Plastic? 4 Out of 5 Hygienists Prefer Our Non-Latex Cup
Unlike many other cups, Pivot NL latex free cups are not plastic. That’s why 4 out of 4 hygienists surveyed prefer the Pivot NL DPA with a non-latex cup over other non-latex brands.*
Pivot NL DPA cups are designed to be softer, more elastic, like natural rubber. Better elasticity means our cup reaches deeper interproximally and splays into the sulcus easier, allowing for a more complete cleaning and polishing.
Hygienists tell is our cups stay more concentric too, which means they spin truer, reducing splatter and providing a more predictable polishing edge … not like plastic cups that often “wobble like a bad tire.”
Best of all our non-latex cups comes attached to our “American Made” runs-like-metal Pivot Disposable Prophy that’s 100% guaranteed to get through the prophy every time. Order Pivot NL Disposable Prophy Angles from your favorite dealer today!

Why does the PIVOT NL disposable prophy angle cup feel softer and more pliable than other latex-free disposable prophy angles?
PIVOT NL (Non-Latex) disposable prophy angle cups are made using compression molding, a process that involves taking firm strips of natural rubber and extracting the latex protein. This process allows PIVOT NL’S latex-free cup to maintain the handling characteristics of natural rubber. Pivot NL cups are designed to be softer, more elastic and with improved concentricity allowing them to spin truer, reducing splatter and providing a more predictable polishing edge. A recent market research survey showed that by 4 out of 5 dental hygienists preferred Pivot NL disposable prophy angles compared .
In contrast, the majority of manufacturers use injection molding, a process that involves using liquefied plastic and forming it into cup shapes. Plastic is stiffer, less elastic than rubber and can lose its concentricity once it’s splayed into the sulcus or pushed interproximally. This often results in increased splatter, wrist fatigue and “wobbling like a bad tire.”
What speed (rpm’s) is recommended for a prophy procedure using Pivot disposable prophy angles?
While Pivot disposable prophy angles will run smoothly on any 5,000 rpm handpiece, for optimum performance we recommend running it between 1,500 and 3,000 rpms for dental prophylaxis. This speed also reduces paste splatter and heat due to friction making it a more pleasant experience for your patient.
