Practice tip: What do I do if my composite resin sticks to my instrument whilst I am placing a filling?
17 April 2020
Do not panic if composite material happens to stick to your instrument. You can easily avoid this situation by using an instrument with a specially coated tip, e.g. OptraSculpt Next Generation. The innovative 2-component attachments come with a non-stick coating that enables you to adapt and shape composite resins without being hampered by excessive stickiness. Additionally, the soft quality of the tips reduces the likelihood of leaving instrument marks on the material. This allows you to achieve a homogeneous and smooth surface already during contouring.
Even demanding areas can be easily and quickly contoured
The three attachments available allow you to shape even tricky surfaces, such as fissures and proximal margins, with ease and speed.
