With dental implant procedures dentists have the issue of later accessing the abutment screw. After a tooth is connected to the screw, it is capped with a filler which ends up clogging the screw head. Ad hoc remedies, such as plumber's tape, are often used as a barrier which leads to bacterial growth and infections. FirstPlug is biocompatible, bacteria impervious, expunges moisture, and is made in the USA. The dispenser design is airtight, allows one handed opening, prevents material fall back, includes finger recess, cutter, measuring strip, volume indicator, and is made from recyclable PP.
