Super-Snap Singles (abridged)


Consultants’ Comments

  • “Excellent polish!”
  • “Plastic mandrels in each packet are great! No more hunting for the few metal mandrels in the office.”
  • “No metal in the center of the disk is great!”


Super-Snap Singles are thin, flexible disks with a silicone rubber center. The plastic, latch-type mandrel is disposable. Each Super-Snap Singles individually sterile pack contains a plastic mandrel plus eight disks: coarse, medium, fine, and extra-fine grits in both regular (12.5 mm) and mini (7.94 mm) sizes. The disks are color-coded for easy identification: black (contouring), violet (finishing), green (polishing), and red (super polishing). They are double-sided with an abrasive on both sides except for the coarse grit disk, which is single-sided. The disks are designed for use in a slow-speed handpiece at 10,000 to 12,000 rpm. Twenty-four consultants evaluated Super-Snap Singles in over 550 uses. This product received a 96% clinical rating.
