Occlusal Onlays - The innovative alternative to crowns.
The minimally invasive approach: Occlusal onlays. Occlusal onlays have been introduced as a new, minimally invasive alternative for the restoration of occlusal defects in the hard substance of premolars and molars.
Clearly reduced loss of hard dental substance - and fewer biological risks.
The preparation of occlusal onlays used to be difficult without special instruments from a technical point of view.
Occlusal contouring and finishing
Ceramic preparations require perfectly round contours. The center of the occlusal surface needs to have a concave shape, whereas the area of the former cusps should have a convex shape to optimally support the occlusal onlay. Since none of the previously existing abrasive instruments were able to create such a special shape, we developed a brand new occlusal abrasive cutter - OccluShapers (370). These are the first instruments to combine both shapes. To ensure the abrasive instruments match the occlusal surfaces of each tooth, the OccluShapers are available in 2 sizes: One for molars and another one for premolars. To complete the range, we have added finishers of matching shape (8370). For occlusal ontouring, prepare the occlusal surface with an OccluShaper of suitable size in a mesio-distal direction along the central fissure. Repeat with a fnisher of the same size and congruent shape.
