Komet USA is expanding its Deep Purple™ Diamond line to include two new bur shapes and is introducing the newest solution for debonding, Smoozies. These innovative products address the needs and challenges of crown preparation procedures and allow for an efficient treatment flow for glue removal.
“As we continue to improve our brand at Komet USA, I’m very excited about introducing these new, innovative products to the market,” said John McCoy, Vice President of Sales at Komet USA. “The Smoozies are an outstanding orthodontic solution for debonding, and I’m thrilled we are increasing one of our flagship product lines, Deep Purple™, with two additional product solutions.”
Komet is introducing Deep Purple™ parallel chamfer shaped diamonds in two new sizes, 881XC.FG.014 and 881XC.FG.016. These extra coarse burs allow for optimal substance removal and maximum operator control when preparing for crown procedures. The new configurations also have optimally embedded diamond grains and large chip spaces to reduce the probability of instrument clogging and to allow for reliable performance.
“For those of us that learned crown preparations using Kois and Spear burs, the parallel chamfer round end 881XC.FG.014 and size 016 definitely fill a gap in our rotary instrumentation armentarium. We greatly appreciate the consistent shape and industry-leading quality of Komet USA burs,” said Dr. Timothy Hess, DDS, a Komet Key Opinion Leader.
Komet is now offering a Smoozie kit, created as an orthodontic solution to assist in removing adhesives from start to finish. The expansion includes a carbide adhesive, H23VIP.RA.016, and rubber adhesive erasers in a flame shape, 9498.RA.050, and a cup shape, 9499.RA.060. These products can be found in the new, comprehensive Smoozie set, 4694, which includes four carbides and four erasers in a plastic bur block.
When in use, the Smoozies offer a fast-cutting but gentle adhesive removal process, thereby leaving the teeth clean and natural with no marks on the enamel.
“The Komet USA Smoozie kit features a carbide adhesive remover that was almost self-cleaning. It didn’t collect any adhesive on the bur and was very efficient in glue removal in combination with the rubber polishers,” said, Dr. Todd Bovenizer, DDS, a Komet Key Opinion Leader.
