Interproximal Relief and Complete Marginal Seating

Interproximal Relief and Complete Marginal Seating

In natural dentition, there is microscopic clearance or passive contact between teeth when they are in rest position, which is called Interproximal Relief (IR)*, and when a crown is fabricated, it is necessary to adjust the crown on the proximal contact surfaces to restore IR, and to achieve complete marginal seating for patient comfort and functionality.

And with that, PrepSure was born.
