eZr is designed for use on today's ultra-hard restorative materials but is suitable for use on any ceramic. It is too aggressive for use on composite materials.
The Rally system is designed as a single patient, disposable finishing and polishing system. Autoclaving while possible, is not recommended.
Fusion Anterior wedges may be used with any anterior matrix to improve its performance.
Fusion wedges are single patient disposable items and should not be sterilized and reused.
You can gently burnish the matrix bands to make contact with the adjacent tooth. Vigorous burnishing is not required and will distort the pre-contoured shape of the band and may cause a gap to form, compromising your contact.
No. Any Garrison ring placement forceps will work. However, the new Fusion Forceps make placing the Fusion rings much easier. They have a different fulcrum point and tip positioning than previous forceps, making the super strong Fusion rings easier to open. This is particularly important for people with smaller hands or medical conditions such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.
Yes and no. Use of the blue silicon carbide polisher is optional. The coarse blue polisher is used for faster removal and contouring and may not be necessary depending on the situation. The red medium grit and gray high shine should be used in the proper order to achieve the best possible polish.
Yes. Use the blue burs for making adjustments, followed by the green medium and orange high shine in that order to polish the surface to a smooth finish.
Fusion rings should be cleaned before sterilization with a soft plastic brush and warm water. You can use a mild detergent alongside warm water if needed (no harsh chemicals should be used in this process). Sterilization is not a substitute for proper cleaning. If debris has accumulated due to improper cleaning, the use of a scaler or other metal instrument may be needed to gently scrape the debris from the ring tips. Debris does not negatively impact ring performance or reduce ring life; it's simply not aesthetically pleasing. To sterilize the rings, steam autoclave only.
There is no set number of expected uses. During internal testing, opening the ring to 10mm between the tips and placing it on a typical molar, the ring provides proper separating pressure for hundreds of cycles. Your use will vary depending on how far you open the rings to place them and if you're properly cleaning, sterilizing, and storing them between uses.
