Komet USA Debuts Peri-Implantitis Kit

Posted on Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Komet USA’s Peri-Implantitis Kit 4684 features egg-shaped (H379) and flame-shaped (H48L) tungsten-carbide instruments indicated for intraoral work on titanium during surgical treatment of peri-implantitis, an inflammatory process that affects the soft tissue surrounding an implant and can lead to the deterioration of the surrounding bone structure. Employed in a resective approach to peri-implantitis treatment, the burs facilitate gentle removal of contaminated micro and macro surface structures of titanium implants. Both the egg- and flame-shaped burs are provided in fine (red ring) and ultra-fine (white ring) versions, which, when used in combination, achieve a remarkably smooth surface to inhibit the development of plaque at the implant site.

With an overall length of 30 mm, the instruments can reach hard-to-access and deep areas with ease, even in cases with firmly anchored restorations. Intended for use in a red contra-angle at 40,000 rpm, the carbides should be guided around the implant in a counter-clockwise direction to minimize the risk of drifting and maximize operator control. Very low contact pressure should be applied, and the instrument should be moved continuously and cooled sufficiently with sterile cooling liquid.

The kit contains four egg-shaped carbides (H379.310.014/023 fine and H379UF.310.014/023 ultra-fine) and four flame-shaped carbides (H48L.310.014/023 fine and H48LUF.310.014/023 ultra-fine) in the popular Komet 9989 laser-marked instrument tray.
