According to Andrew Whitehead, VP of Sales and Marketing: “TWIST is the perfect
addition to our Crosstex brand model — innovative, high-quality, disposable and
manufactured in the USA. The popular TWIST prophy angle will now be available
exclusively through the Crosstex network of distributors, complementing the full line of
Crosstex Patient’s Choice ™ products that include Sparkle ™ and Sparkle Free ™ Prophy Pastes, Zap ™ Fluoride Gels, Foams and Trays as well as GumNumb ™ Topical Anesthetics.”

The TWIST prophy angle is the first and only disposable 90º reciprocating, back and forth prophy angle that completely eliminates the spatter of prophy paste, saliva, blood and other potential infectious matter. TWIST also eliminates frictional heat. TWIST’s gentle but firm oscillating motion allows one to maintain continuous contact and pressure between prophy cup and tooth surface at all times. No dabbing or dotting on and off the tooth surface is necessary and TWIST is effective and safe for use on gingival margins and exposed dentin.
The result is a cleaner, safer, faster and more comfortable chair-side experience for both
patient and healthcare professional. TWIST is also latex-free. Small wonder that TWIST
has attracted a following of devoted professionals who actually say they “love” and “cannot work without” TWIST.
The TWIST prophy angle is one of the latest in a line of ground-breaking products from
Crosstex, the company behind other well-known brands including Isofluid ® Face Masks, SaniTyze ™ Waterless Antimicrobial Gel, Sanitex Plus ® Disinfectant Wipes and Ultra Gauze ™ Non-Woven Sponges.
