FURTHER INFORMATION ON THE INVISIBLE ORTHODONTICS TECHNIQUE SMILETECH
Interproximal reduction is one of the solutions to requisition space in some cases of dental crowding.
For interproximal reductions less than 0.30 mm, stripping is carried out with abrasive strips.
The enamel surfaces to be reduced and the degree of removal to be achieved is shown on the label that accompanies each box of the template.
To avoid periodontal trauma caused by the movement of the abrasive strip, it is recommended to start with the thinner one continuing with greater thicknesses.
At the end use the extra thin for polishing and fluorine with the micromotor brush.
For interproximal reductions greater than 0.30 mm, rotary tools such as cutters or abrasive discs can be used.
Using a calibrated feeler gauge, it is then possible to measure the value of the reduction made.
The necessary for interproximal reduction and the feeler gauge are provided free of charge and delivered inside the Smiletech box.
The SMILETECH® technique often involves the use of composite buttons on the tooth surface, which have the purpose of retaining the aligner and controlling movement.
A template section will help the operator to correctly position the buttons.
Clean the surface of the affected tooth with a solution of water and pumice and rinse.
Etch the enamel for 30 seconds and rinse.
Blow dry, pass bonding and photo cure.
Apply the composite in the concavity of the template reservoir, place on dry teeth and light cure for 30 seconds.
Remove excess composite around the button.
It is recommended to use reconstruction composites for greater resistance to abrasion.
