Ortho Prophy, Rubber Cup?

I have been very conflicted, and haven’t found anything on the internet. My office doesn’t have a air polisher, or occlusal polishing cups… all we have are regular rubber cups. Is it possible to use a regular rubber prohy cups for an ortho prophy?

When I treat ortho patients we have their wires removed for easier access which makes a rubber cup prophy angle more effective. As long as you are using an ultrasonic, followed by hand instrumentation, and you feel you can use a rubber cup prophy angle, I see no reason why it’s not possible. 🙂
