KOMET USA introduces the Soft Cutter.
ROCK HILL, South Carolina--KOMET USA’s new Soft Cutter (SC1) protects metal surfaces during fine acrylic adjustments in critical areas. The Soft Cutter is suitable for detailed acrylic work, including the removal of excess marginal material from orthodontic appliances and detailed trimming around wire elements. In addition, the Soft Cutter is intended for precision work on temporary clasp dentures, as well as in transitional areas between metal and acrylics. While standard burs can damage brackets, connectors, orthodontic wires, springs, and other metallic retention elements, the extra-gentle Soft Cutter is engineered from a high-tech material that is softer than metal.The Soft Cutter’s design addresses an age-old dilemma: For any case in which acrylics are combined with metal elements, it is standard procedure to process the hard metal first. Oftentimes, these polished metal surfaces are roughened, damaged, or even destroyed due to inadvertent contact with burs during acrylic processing. Furthermore, the resultant reworking of the damaged metal brackets and springs weakens their structure and generates heat. This, in turn, can quickly damage the acrylics. The gentle Soft Cutter helps prevent damage to metal parts while avoiding heat-related acrylic damage.For more information, call (888) 566-3887 or visit read more about KOMET USA, go to KOMET USA.To comment on this product, go to
