KOMET USA, Rock Hill, SC, introduces Adhesive-Removing Instruments that are designed to remove tough adhesive residue.

According to a study conducted by Ralf Radlanski, DDS, at the University of Berlin, the instruments feature a special toothing that removes adhesive without damaging the enamel.  At low contact pressure, the instruments operate with low vibration and achieve smooth surfaces while generating minimal heat. Their twisted blades, made of durable tungsten carbide, are suited for precise reduction of soft materials and ensure smooth operation.

The instruments are available in three different forms: H22ALGK.204.016, H22ALGK.314.016, and H379AGK.314.023. In order to avoid the risk of damaging the gingiva, all adhesive removers feature non-cutting tips. The safety chamfer at the head’s end eliminates the formation of grooves. The tapered instrument is available for contra-angle and turbine handpieces. The H22ALGK is designed for canines and long anterior teeth. The egg-shape (H379AGK) instrument is suited for the palatinal reduction of adhesive in the lingual technique.
