- Non-stick properties: reduce the stickiness of the composite versus the instrument
- Compatibility: attachments are suitable for both instruments
- Working angles are adjusted to the anterior and posterior regions
- No marks left by the instrument on the restoration surface
- Reduction of air inclusions in the composite during application
- Homogeneous surface texture
- Efficient, easy contouring due to specially adjusted attachment shapes
- Reduced effort in finishing and polishing
- Foam pad attachments for non-stick, mark-free contouring
- Two pad sizes for efficient contouring of direct veneers and large-surface class III and IV restorations
- Reference scale on the instrument handle for recording the axis alignment and the width of the anterior teeth
- Optimum working angle for the anterior region
OptraSculpt are contouring instruments for the efficient contouring of composite restorations
The contouring and shaping of state-of-the-art high-quality dental composites is a challenging task. Apart from other factors, it significantly influences the long-term success of the treatment, since the correct anatomical shape of the restoration is crucial to the overall health of the chewing system. The occlusal design is important for the proper functioning of the masticatory system. Correctly designed proximal marginal ridges facilitate the cleaning of interdental spaces. Moreover, smooth restoration surfaces minimize the accumulation of plaque, and carefully created margins reduce the occurrence of secondary caries.
- Suitable for adapting, shaping, and contouring uncured packable composite and compomer materials in Class III, IV, and V restorations and direct laminate veneers.
- The non-stick surface of the foam pad attachments prevents the adhesion of composite resins.
- The instrument does not leave any marks and therefore ensures the creation of even surfaces.
- The reference scales on the instrument handle ensure professional esthetic results.
DIRECTION TO USE
Application in the dental office
Step 1: Select the appropriate OptraSculpt or OptraSculpt Pad attachment, depending on the size of the restoration and the area in which it will be employed
Step 2: Remove the attachment from the packaging either directly or indirectly (e.g. using sterile tweezers), ensuring freedom from contamination
Step 3: Then insert the attachment into the ring-shaped end of the hand-held instrument
Step 4: The color-coded OptraSculpt attachments are supplied correctly aligned in refill boxes so that they can be taken up directly with the instrument
Step 5: To attach the disc-shaped OptraSculpt Pad attachments, place them flat on a firm, contamination-free working surface.
