Using the DISCtance IPR system in your practice

July 31, 2017

The system is said to allow for a greater degree of precision in the course of reducing interproximal enamel.

Komet USA unveiled an advanced stripping system designed to help dentists more easily, efficiently and accurately perform interproximal enamel reductions on adult patients being prepared to receive braces fixed at the buccal or lingual side of the tooth or prior to treatment with dental aligners.

Efficient: The DISCtance™ IPR system reportedly simplifies and speeds up the task of stripping when indicated for correcting lower jaw tooth sizes that are disproportionate to those of the upper jaw, for eliminating crowding and for creating full-surface contact (especially in the lower anteriors) in order to improve results stability following the end of orthodontic treatment.

Precise: The system is said to allow for a greater degree of precision in the course of reducing interproximal enamel. The greater accuracy potential is attributable in part to the unique diamond coating on each of the kit’s included stripping discs.

Versatile: The discs come in a versatile assortment of sizes: 0.15 mm, 0.20 mm and 0.30 mm. Using progressively thicker discs on a patient reportedly makes it far easier to remove the precise amount of enamel.
