Inspired by the demand for both speed and safety with motorized IPR, ContacEZ has unveiled its latest product —SupraDisc safe-edged diamond disc. Designed for use with Invisalign, ClearCorrect, eCligner, Six Month Smiles and other orthodontic treatments, SupraDisc offers orthodontists and general dentists a fast, safe and efficient way to successfully perform IPR, which has often been a worrisome, stressful procedure.

In the current market, diamond discs are coated with diamond particles all the way to their edges, making it easy to leave harmful gouges and ledges on tooth surfaces with even the slightest changes in angulation. This excess enamel damage is irreversible and the potential cause of a variety of serious iatrogenic conditions, including hypersensitivity and the deformation of tooth anatomy which leads to increased bacterial accumulation. With SupraDisc, however, these risks can be prevented.

Made in Germany using only the highest-quality materials, the unique design and technology of diamond coating leaves the outside of the disc uncoated and non-abrasive, guiding the path of the disc along the space between the teeth and preventing the edge from grinding deep cuts into the tooth. Additionally, this design helps ease initial entry between the teeth, helping doctors guide the disc straight down into the interproximal space. These benefits, in turn, significantly reduce chair time, decrease operator stress, and improve patient safety.

SupraDiscs are 19 or 22 mm in diameter and are available in top-, bottom-, and dual-coated.

Best of all, SupraDisc is a perfect complement to existing ContacEZ IPR Strips and products, Supra IPR, allowing doctors to create the perfect solution for their interproximal reduction. Doctors can begin reduction with the Yellow IPR Starter and Red IPR Opener from the IPR Strip System for easier access to tight contacts, improve safety by using a Snap-On Disc Guard, confirm accurate reduction with Incremental Thickness Gauges, and polish away surface roughness with the Gray Final Polishing Strip.
