Shofu's Launches System for the Removal of Orthodontic Attachments

Posted on December 4, 2015

SAN MARCOS, California, December 2, 2015—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, will help dental professionals safely detach the composite resin and restore the tooth to a highly aesthetic look, without marring the surface.

The composite attachment removal technique supports minimally invasive dentistry. The protocol begins with outlining the composite with a pencil. This step will 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 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. 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, firstly, 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 pre-lustered. Lastly, with a dab of superfine, diamond impregnated DirectDia Polishing Paste (PN 0558) directly massaged on the tooth surface, using a Super-Snap SuperBuff disk (PN 0536), the tooth can be buffed to create the desired wet, glossy look.

Shofu’s Attachment Removal Kit for Clear Aligners delivers both the finest instruments and proven protocol to help dental professionals safely remove the orthodontic attachment and restore the tooth to a highly aesthetic look in an efficient and predictable manner.
