Sof-Lex™ Spiral Finishing and Polishing Wheels from 3M ESPE provide a new way to put the final natural-looking gloss on restorations.

Sof-Lex™ Spiral Finishing and Polishing Wheels from 3M ESPE provide a new way to put the final natural-looking gloss on restorations.

With an advanced spiral shape that adapts to all tooth surfaces, Sof-Lex finishing and polishing wheels give dentists a versatile and simple alternative to traditional points, cups, discs and brushes.

Flexible fingers: These new finishing and polishing wheels are designed with flexible spiral “fingers” that adapt to all anterior and posterior surfaces. The fingers of the spiral wheels conform to convex and concave surfaces as they move across the restoration, so there is no need to switch shapes during the procedure to fit various contours.

Abrasive Particles: The technology behind the product embeds abrasive particles throughout the Sof- Lex Spiral Wheels, so effective finishing and polishing can be achieved from any side-top, bottom or edge. With just one shape, and with no water cooling necessary, dentists can quickly achieve a lifelike luster from any angle.

Simple, Two-Step System: The single-use spiral wheels have a simple two-step system. Dentists first use the fine Sof-Lex™ Spiral Finishing Wheel to remove minor scratches and prepare the surface for high gloss polishing.

Then, the superfine Sof-Lex™ Spiral Polishing Wheel is used to complete the procedure, creating a smooth, high-gloss, natural-looking surface.

Added Plus: Sof-Lex spiral wheels are well suited for use with composites such as Filtek™ Supreme Ultra Universal Restorative from 3M ESPE, resin-modified glass ionomers, bisacrylic temporary materials, and precious and semi-precious metal.
