Clinical Tips: FenderWedge
Bur damage to adjacent teeth is a common problem in everyday dental practice. Research shows that 70% of adjacent teeth suffer damage during class II preparations.* FenderWedge prevents damage to the adjacent tooth and gingiva that commonly occurs during Class II preparations. FenderWedge is a combination of a steel plate and a plastic wedge. It facilitates easy application of a matrix. To avoid aspiration it is recommended to secure FenderWedge with a waxed dental floss. > Read more about the importance of protecting the adjacent tooth.
Clinical Tips: FenderWedge Prep
FenderWedge Prep is a plastic wedge with an inbuilt steel plate specially designed for larger preparations such as crowns, veneers and inlays. FenderWedge Prep improves the quality of preparations and saves time thanks to increased vision and safety. The steel plate is perforated thus allowing it to be bent before insertion to lean against the adjacent tooth, providing better access and vision. > How should I use FenderWedge Prep?

Clinical Tips: CoForm
Anterior transparent pre-formed matrices for resin-based composite restorations. Supplied in a ready cut series of mesial and distal corners for anteriors and canines. Ideal for forming composite restorations as fractured incisive edges. > Learn how you can use CoForm.
Clinical Tips: Spotit
Before cementation of conventional crowns, bridges and implant prosthetics, it is necessary to assess the relationship of the crown to the neighboring teeth. Occlusion paper is often used to check the contact point. This method however shows a too broad and inaccurate contact point with the subsequent risk of excessive adjustment, often resulting in too large contact point. Spotit simplifies adjustment of C&B contact points helping with exact indication of contact points. As the marker traverses the contact between the prosthetic element and the adjacent tooth it leaves a clear and accurate indication of the adjustment needed for a perfect contact point. > Time-saving and accurate with Spotit.
Clinical Tips: ANA Etching Gel
ANA Etching Gel is an enamel and dentine etchant with 37% concentration of phosphoric acid. It is a well established fact that etching materials should contain 35-40% phosphoric acid. ANA Etching Gel stays in place without collapsing. The ideal viscosity in combination with the blue colour enables very precise and clearly detectable placement. The thin bendable needles allow accurate application. Very easy and fast to rinse off. > ANA Etching Gel and it’s texture is perfect for any way of etching.
