Ivoclar Vivadent announces the introduction of OptraSculpt®Next Generation, an innovative new composite modeling instrument for use when sculpting direct posterior restorations. Representing an enhancement to the well-proven OptraSculpt Pad for the anterior tooth region, OptraSculpt Next Generation is the contemporary counterpart that is said to enable clinicians to easily reach the full range of posterior teeth and precisely manipulate composites.

Crafting esthetic restorations is a challenge that can have a decisive influence on long-term treatment success. With OptraSculpt Next Generation, sophisticated anatomical tooth structures reportedly can be professionally crafted using one of three available attachments: ball, point and/or chisel. A hygienic dispenser box is included for easy removal of the attachments, and the attachments and pads are interchangeable between anterior and posterior instruments. OptraSculpt Next Generation is designed with an ideal angle of incidence for the posterior tooth region, which means all areas are easy to reach.

OptraSculpt Next Generation is said to demonstrate all of the beneficial characteristics of the OptraSculpt product line, including nonstick properties for easy composite adaptation and specially adjusted attachment shapes for easy contouring that ultimately leads to highly efficient finishing and polishing. In the future, OptraSculpt Next Generation will replace the previously available OptraSculpt modeling instrument.
