Shofu Dental Corporation, a leading manufacturer of award-winning dental materials and equipment, has launched a new system for the removal of orthodontic attachments.

The Attachment Removal Kit for Clear Aligners is designed to offer proper tools and provide choices for safe and effective removal of orthodontic attachments created with direct composite. Arranged in a sequence of logical steps, the designated tools and removal protocol, included in this kit, reportedly will help dental professionals safely detach the composite resin and restore the tooth to a highly esthetic look without marring the surface.

The composite attachment removal technique is said to support minimally invasive dentistry. The protocol begins with outlining the composite with a pencil. This step is designed to help dental professionals visually define the canvas for safe and effective detachment. Depending on a patient and location of the attachment, a bulk of the composite can be removed with either a nonmetal flexible Super-Snap black coarse disk (PN 0503), an 8-fluted Robot Carbide CTF Finisher (PN 0770-3) or a combination of both.

In the next phase, using either OneGloss PS (PN 0176, 0177, 0178), a one-step single-use aluminum oxide finisher and polisher or a flexible Super-Snap violet medium disk (PN 0503), the prominence of composite residual can be safely reduced. In the final step, using a non-metal Super-Snap green fine disk (PN 0503) then a Super-Snap red superfine disk (PN 0503), the tooth surface can be polished and prelustered. Lastly, with a dab of superfine, diamond-impregnated DirectDia Polishing Paste (PN 0558) directly massaged on the tooth surface and using a Super-Snap SuperBuff disk (PN 0536), the tooth can be buffed to create the desired wet, glossy look.
