3M ESPE’s Sof-Lex™ Spiral Finishing and Polishing Wheels offer a new way to put the final natural-looking gloss on restorations. With an innovative spiral shape that adapts to all tooth surfaces, Sof-Lex dental finishing and polishing wheels give dentists a versatile and simple alternative to traditional points, cups, discs and brushes. These new dental finishing and polishing wheels are designed with flexible spiral “fingers” that adapt to all anterior and posterior surfaces. The fingers of the dental finishing and polishing wheels conform to convex and concave surfaces as they move across the restoration, so there is no need to switch shapes during the procedure to fit various contours. Abrasive particles are embedded throughout the dental finishing and polishing wheels, so effective dental finishing and polishing can be achieved from any side—top, bottom or edge. With just one shape, and with no water-cooling necessary, dentists can use dental finishing and polishing wheels from any angle and quickly achieve a lifelike luster. The single-use dental finishing and polishing wheels have a simple two-step system. Dentists can use the fine Sof-Lex Spiral Finishing Wheel to remove minor scratches and prepare the surface for high gloss polishing. Then, the superfine Sof-Lex Spiral Polishing Wheel can be used to complete the procedure, creating a smooth, high-gloss, natural-looking surface. Dental finishing and polishing wheels are ideal for use with composites such as 3M™ ESPE™ Filtek™ Supreme Ultra Universal Restorative, resin-modified glass ionomers, bisacrylic temporary materials, precious and semi-precious metal.
