ROCK HILL, South Carolina--KOMET USA has introduced its new Sonic Tips series designed for the exact positioning and finishing of crown margins.
In collaboration with internationally renowned Italian specialist Dr. Domenico Massironi, Komet designed tips ideally suited for this indication. The company now offers a combination of rotary instruments and sonic tips that can produce an exact marginal seal, site preparation and clinical restoration.
KOMET, a leader in the production of precision rotary instruments for the dental industry, offers three instruments in its series, each featuring a different shape and performing a specific function in preparing the crown core. These include the Ellipse, Tapered with Rounded Edge and Flame. The best synergy effects are achieved by using a combination of rotary instruments and Sonic Tips.
As an example, in preparing a shoulder to receive an all-ceramic restoration, a supra-gingival preparation is performed using a rotary instrument. This is followed by the exact positioning of the preparation for the prosthetic marginal seal by using the Sonic Tip.
The final finishing is performed using the same Sonic Tip at a minimum setting. The Sonic Tips can only be used in combination with the KaVo SONICflex system. They do not only achieve excellent results, they also leave the gums completely unharmed, even if direct contact occurs.
A sonically placed and finished crown margin is the best precondition of an exact impression and the successful creation of a durable restoration.
