Introducing the Complete Solution for IPR: The Supra IPR Kit

With the launch of the new Supra IPR Kit from ContacEZ, Interproximal Solutions, it is now easier than ever for dentists to make interproximal reduction simple, safe, and stress-free for themselves and their patients. Designed to provide dentists with a single kit that contains all the best products for performing both motorized and manual IPR, the Supra IPR Kit is the complete solution for orthodontists and general practitioners, alike.


Central to the Supra IPR Kit is our latest product: SupraDisc. This unique, safe-edged diamond disc was inspired by a request from Dr. Rebecca Poling during her tenure as a professor at the NYU Department of Orthodontics. Noticing that many of her students would leave deep ledges and gouges in tooth surfaces after performing IPR with diamond discs, she contacted Dr. Daniel Kim to inquire about the possibility of manufacturing a new, safe-edged disc that could prevent this harmful enamel damage. In response, the ContacEZ R&D Team worked for two years to research, design, test, refine, and ultimately manufacture SupraDisc.

Released earlier this year, SupraDisc has been well-received by both dental schools and practicing orthodontists looking to improve the safety and efficiency of their IPR.

Combined with ContacEZ’s other orthodontic products, the Supra IPR Kit has everything an office needs to make what is often a stressful procedure for both doctors and patients simple and easy. Each Supra IPR Kit contains:

•                     SupraDisc—Top, bottom, and dual-coated 22 mm diamond discs with non-abrasive safe-edge.

•                     Snap-On DiscGuard—Simple and easy-to-use solution for eliminating risk and giving yourself peace-of-mind by protecting patients' soft tissue from spinning discs.

•                     IPR Strip System & IPR Plus—Flexible, single-handed diamond strips that make manual reproximation safe and accurate without leaving sharp corners, subgingival ledges, or flat contacts.

•                     Strip Trays—The perfect way to store and organize ContacEZ IPR Strips.

•                     Incremental Thickness Gauge—Confirms accurate IPR to remove guesswork.
