Our hospital recently started taking digital oral radiographs, and getting the disposable plastic sleeve over the probe was extremely frustrating.

One day, I decided to use some Glad Press’n Seal plastic wrap on the probe instead of the disposable sleeve. The plastic wrap goes on and off quickly and a little bit goes a long way. The other technicians and I have never looked back!
