Interproximal Finishing and Contouring System Suits Variety of Cases

Dentistry Today


Garrison Dental Solutions’ FitStrip Interproximal Finishing and Contouring System is designed to provide clinicians with the diamond abrasive strips necessary to successfully restore a very wide variety of cases. The kit includes 8 varieties of diamond-coated abrasive strips, 2 interproximal saws, and 2 interchangeable handles. FitStrip is indicated for use in interproximal reduction (IPR), contact reduction, interproximal finishing and contouring, crown and bridge cement removal and cleanup, and separation of inadvertently bonded teeth.

Single-sided and double-sided strips both are included. Each strip can be adjusted from straight (for contact reduction) to curved (for interproximal contouring) with a twist of the color-coded barrel, eliminating clinician hand fatigue. The interchangeable handle is designed to easily attach to any of the FitStrip components to significantly improve clinician ease of use and patient comfort. The clinician’s hand stays outside of the mouth to provide a clear field of view and easier operation.

According to Garrison, FitStrip represents the best solution for IPR, creating the space needed for minor movement of teeth when necessary. Working in concert with orthodontic treatments such as Clear Correct, Invisalign, and Six Month Smiles, the color-coded strips provide a roadmap for achieving the desired IPR quickly, easily, and effectively, the company states. A complete selection of refills also is available.
