The Attachment Removal Kit for Clear Aligners from Shofu Dental gives clinicians the tools they need to safely remove orthodontic attachments created with direct composite.
The kit provides a minimally invasive approach and is arranged in a sequence of logical steps that make it easy to detach the composite resin without marring the tooth’s surface, according to a press release.
The protocol begins by outlining the composite with a pencil. This helps define the canvas for safe, effective detachment. Most of the composite can be removed with either a non-metal flexible Super-Snap black coarse disk (PN 0503), or an 8-fluted Robot Carbide CTF Finisher (PN 0770-3), or a combination of both.
Next, 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), dental professionals can polish and pre-luster the tooth surface. Then, with a dab of superfine, diamond impregnated DirectDia Polishing Paste (PN 0558) directly massaged on the tooth surface, the tooth can be buffed to a wet, glossy look by using a Super-Snap SuperBuff disk (PN 0536).
