Gingival Cuff Links
The Gingival Cuff Links, available from GCL Systems Inc., is a fully customizable and sculptable healing cuff that is to be used to preserve and perfect gingival emergence profile. In addition to being used as a healing cuff, it can be modified to serve as a provisional restoration.
Chairside sculpting/customizing of the Gingival Cuff Links is a distinct feature of the system and is done with routine dental materials. Removal of acrylic is done with a dental handpiece using the appropriate burs, discs, etc.
Additions to the Gingival Cuff Links are done by adding flowable composite (no primer necessary) or additional bis-acryl to a dry surface on the Gingival Cuff Links.
The Gingival Cuff Links can be used with both direct and indirect impression techniques.
