Speaking of IPR: How Accurate are You? How safe is your patient?
Speaking of IPR: How Accurate are You? How safe is your patient? 

Interproximal reduction is a widely employed technique in orthodontics to address crowding issues, but it also serves to enhance tooth shape and diminish the presence of black triangles. Surprisingly, when executed correctly, the amount of interproximal reduction (IPR) needed may be less than initially anticipated. Armed with the right tools and techniques, practitioners can conduct IPR more precisely and safely, avoiding the creation of sharp corners or causing discomfort to the lips or gums.

Patients often express concerns about enamel reduction to their natural teeth, but once they witness the simplicity and speed of the procedure, coupled with the absence of discomfort, they tend to relax and place confidence in the practitioner.

ContacEZ IPR Strips present a user-friendly approach for performing IPR without the risk of creating sharp corners or subgingival ledges. These flexible diamond strips adapt to the natural contours of the teeth, ensuring optimal tactile control with their single-handed design. The central opening enhances visual perception, preventing over-reduction or harm to the patient.
