Founded by David Fyffe, DDS, ArtCraft Dental offers a wide array of dental instruments and diamonds and burs, including Xpanders™ atraumatic elevators and the company’s most revolutionary instrument—TempOff®.

With the TempOff instrument, clinicians can remove temporaries of all types in 3-5 seconds. According to ArtCraft Dental, using the instrument is not only fast and easy, but it is also virtually pain-free for the patient.

TempOff features a stable, 4-point contact tip that provides a firm, non-slip grip onto temporaries of all types allowing the practitioner to lock-on solidly to the provisional in the proper position—the upper one-third above the level of the underlying prep. Once locked on, less force is exerted on the tooth and build-up, and the lower two-thirds of the temp is free to flex out and break its own cement contact, according to the company.

There is no need for anesthesia, and no need for cutting off temporaries.

Xpanders are designed to enable clinicians to avoid broken root tips in their practice. Invented by Dr Fyffe, these atraumatic elevators are designed to upgrade extractions, making the procedure faster and easier. They’re said to help avoid the dreaded deep broken root tip mishaps.

The Xpanders power comes from the double-action tips. Just a small amount of penetration into the PDL space is all that is needed for maximum lateral tooth movement. With these elevators, users achieve both bucco-lingual movement and mesio-distal movement. The more movement you can get prior to the use of forceps, the less likely root tips break off, the company says.

Xpanders tips allow for a stable two-point contact between the crest of bone and the neck of the tooth.With simple twisting, one point locks onto the bone, while the other point pushes the tooth laterally, causing bucco-lingual socket expansion and superior pre-forceps loosening.

These powerful intra-ligamental elevators are designed to make extractions less stressful.
