The latest addition to the ContacEZ Restorative Strip System, the ContacEZ Serrated Diamond Strip (Orange), is designed for use as an alternative to the ContacEZ Diamond Dental Strip when overly tight contacts are present or where there is a challenge in positioning the strip at the initial contact. This single-handed serrated strip has an ultra-thin and ultra-fine abrasive diamond surface on one side with a saw-tooth edge (0.05 mm).
Designed to be used prior to definitive cementation, this saw-toothed strip provides easy penetration into the interproximal space to separate overly tight contacts with the serrated edge. It also aids in achieving ideal proximal contact adjustment with an abrasive diamond surface.
ContacEZ Dental Strips are ultra-thin, therefore, you can use them between teeth to restore ideal proximal contacts of crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays without causing food impaction. Make sure to hold the crown in place and start to move the ContacEZ Serrated Diamond Strip buccolingually in one direction.
More than 30 years ago, Vancouver, Washington dentist, Dr. Daniel Kim began searching for a better crown seating method. He was determined to find a simple technique that would improve worldwide dental health care by enhancing patient comfort and functionality immediately after definitive cementation of indirect restorations, crowns, inlays/onlays, and fillings. In 2006, Dr. Kim introduced the revolutionary new crown-seating tool ContacEZ Diamond Dental Strip to dentists worldwide (www.contacEZ.com).
Since its successful debut in October 2006, ContacEZ, LLC located in Vancouver, Washington has been growing steadily. With a mission for better dentistry, we are continuously investing in research and developing new ways to deliver value to our dentists by providing excellent technical support and a total 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Our goal is to improve dental health care by providing dentists with devices that will enhance patient comfort and functionality immediately after definitive cementation of indirect restorations, crowns, inlays/onlays, and fillings.
