Orthodontic Proximal Enamel Reduction (IPR) is a means of removing a small amount of the outer enamel between two adjacent teeth and the tooth surface to gain extra space to create an ideal tooth alignment.
Standard configuration list:
●Single-side with hole type 15 (HD) 1 piece, single-side with hole type 25 (HD) 1 piece, single-side with hole type 40 (HD) 1 piece. Single-side with hole type 60 (HD) 1 piece, single-side with Hole type 90 (HD), 1 piece
●Double-side with hole type 15 (HD) 1 piece, double-side with hole type 25 (HD) 1 piece, double-side with hole type 40 (HD) 1 piece. Double-side with hole type 60 (HD) 1 piece, double- side with Hole type 90 (HD), 1 piece
●Manual straight handle: 1 piece, manual 90° handle: 1 piece, knife ejector pin: 1 piece.
Instructions for use: First, use 15 (HD) blades to obtain the gap, and then select blades with different sand grains and thicknesses for deglazing according to clinical requirements to obtain the desired effect. Because the blade moves in a straight line and the tooth shape is curved, in order to avoid the formation of steps on the teeth after deglazing, which affects the closing effect, manual trimming with sand strips is required.
Feature of Orthodontic Proximal Enamel Reduction (IPR):
●Create space to improve tooth alignment.
●Helps to improve bite force (suitable for the way your teeth are together).
●It can increase the stability of the teeth, so they will stay in their place for a long time.
●The "black triangle" can be reduced. This is caused by the lack of gum tissue (gingival mastoid) between the teeth, and a dark space or hole appears.
●IPR may reduce the permanent need for teeth under certain circumstances. ●Note: IPR may also be used for tooth extraction along with the reasons listed above.
●It may help to improve the appearance of teeth and reshape them for better aesthetic results.
