The indications for monolithic, solid zirconia restorations like BruxZir continue to increase, and the Axis BruxZir Adjustment and Polishing Set make post-cementation adjustments quick and easy.
Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) February 1, 2011
Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental lab products and services, announced today that the BruxZir® Adjustment and Polishing Set, developed by Glidewell Laboratories’ Director of Clinical Education Dr. Michael DiTolla in conjunction with Axis Dental, is now available for purchase. With the rise in popularity of monolithic zirconia restorations, clinicians will find it necessary to equip their operatories with diamonds and polishers designed especially for the adjustment, polishing and removal of zirconia crowns & bridges.
“The indications for monolithic, solid zirconia restorations like BruxZir continue to increase, and the Axis BruxZir Adjustment and Polishing Set make post-cementation adjustments quick and easy,” Dr. DiTolla stated. “I still remember the first few zirconia-based restorations I had to remove, and how it was nearly impossible with the wrong burs.”
The BruxZir Adjustment and Polishing Set (LS-7579) contains three special Zir-Cut diamond shapes, which help reduce the risk of chipping during adjustment, and two Zir-Cut zirconia polishing cups that finish with a high polish shine. The diamonds may also be used for cutting off zirconia crowns. The kit can be purchased through Axis Dental online (axisdental.com) or by calling 800-835-5063.
