During my restorative lectures, many people ask me, “What instruments do you like using?” Well, I do have my favorites that I’m comfortable with, but I also tell people it’s not always about a specific instrument but how you might use different instruments depending on the situation you are facing. I definitely like to try new and novel approaches, as not all teeth and restorative situations present themselves in the same way.
Kerr Dental has come up with a unique composite instrument called the CompoRoller. It’s a composite instrument specifically designed to provide modeling control of all layers and contours of your direct composites.
The CompoRoller's working ends feature proprietary, non-stick rolling tips that allow a bubble-free, homogenous application of any composite in thin, even layers. It also eliminates any undesired traces of bubbles that may form on placement. The disposable rolling tips are made of smooth, medical-grade thermoplastic elastomer. They are available in five shapes for shaping margins, occlusions and the overall body of your composite restoration.
Why do I recommend trying the CompoRoller? For one thing, the unique rolling tips contour composite quickly in thin, even layers while minimizing the time it takes to finish and polish. They create precise, predictably smooth composite contouring. This definitely helps to optimize your margins and provide easier polishing.
The CompoRoller has non-stick tips that roll freely, resulting in bubble-free applications. As you know, it’s important to have a homogenous application of composite rather than streaks and layers. The instrument’s versatility is easy to see as the various tip selections are suited to specific contours, depending on your preference. It’s also very hygienic as the tips are disposable, preventing issues with cross contamination. The handle is ergonomic and autoclavable to 134 degrees Celsius /273 degrees Fahrenheit. Why not give the CompoRoller a try and see for yourself?
