KOMET USA’s SF849 sonic tip for opening fissures is designed exclusively for use with the KOMET SonicLine sonic handpiece (SF1LM). Featuring a small-diameter tip, the instrument is operated at low oscillation amplitude for minimally invasive fissure-opening procedures to detect hidden caries, to remove fissure caries, and to prepare fissures for sealant applications. Made in Germany with outstanding attention to engineering and clinical requirements, the KOMET SonicLine system comprises a comprehensive range of high-quality sonic tips that cover a multitude of indications, including prophylaxis, crown-preparation procedures, and finishing veneer preparations as well as the opening of fissures. Special tip labeling allows the use to easily identify the correct tip for a specific procedure, and laser etching of the order number on the sonic tips facilitates ordering of additional tips as needs arise. Tips coated with fine grain are indicated with a red identification dot. The sonic tips can withstand regular reprocessing in a washer/disinfector through use of a rinse adapter.
