Apply elastically with the thin spatula
Inside the LM arte kit it is possible to find a thin spatula, thinner than many others in the market. In this arIcle we wanted to point out the advantages of modeling with a thin spatula like Applica.
Allows the practitioner to be precise when modelling the proximal wall either in posteriors or in anteriors. Specially in small diastema.
Adapting the composite in the cervical area is almost impossible to do it right if it is not with a thin and small spatula. Modelling the interincisal angle is also easier with the thin spatula.
It can be used to gently smooth the composite with more precision as the touch sensation increases and also to model precisely the incisal edge, because Applica is very elastic.
Apply with a twist within the narrow spatula
Especially fine, flexible and narrow spatula for composite modeling. With the LM-Arte Applica Twist it is very easy to model in the approximal spaces and marginal ridges in matrix.
Thanks to its bended angles, Applica Twist allows to reach even more difficult areas without twisting so much the hand, as modeling approximal walls or the marginal ridge in matrix.
LM Arte Applica Twist: Enamel is placed on silicone key.
Super thin and wide spatula to Model flexibly
Super thin and wide spatula ideal for composite modeling, especially on big surfaces such as a vestibular wall of a frontal tooth. The wide blade allows to flatten the surface very efficiently and the extreme thin tip makes the spatula very sharp.
When taking the composite directly from the syringe is preferable to use a less elastic instrument, like LM Modella, to avoid loosing the material.
We proceed with the distal interproximal wall and than we recreated the distal angle with the same thin spatula, LM Arte Modella.
Layering of the final enamel layer with LM Arte Modella instrument, followed by smoothening with brushes.
A long and round plugger to push composite softly
LM-Arte Condensa has both a thick and a thin tip which may be used in cavities of different sizes, in both anterior and posterior areas.
A long and round plugger especially designed for modeling composite. The angulated shanks of the instrument enable unlimited access to all cavities.
A final single mass of enamel is placed. LM Condensa are used at this point to create some macroanatomy of the tooth.
LM-Arte Condensa Plug gently,the plugger has two tips, a thick and a thin one. Both ends are non-angled so we can gently press without the risk of sticking to the composite.
A unique instrument for horizontal and vertical measuring
A unique instrument for horizontal and vertical measuring of thicknesses of composite layers on the anterior restorations, preventing the unpleasant grey effect of the composites.
The thicker, short tip of the Misura is placed horizontally on the margin of the prepared cavity so that the edge of the tip remains on the original enamel. This determines the right amount of transparent composite to apply on the finishing line.
One layer of dentine composite is applied. Excess material is removed with the LM Arte Misura tool, which creates a calibrated 0,5mm space free for buccal enamel composite. The goal of the restoration should be additive and not substractive.
After removing the excess dentine do not leave a sharp interface between the dentine and the enamel. Using appropriate brushes one can ramp up the dentine mass almost to the top very close to the enamel surface.
Sculp delicately with the Extremely sharp pointed tips
A modeling instrument with extremely sharp pointed tips. The flexibility of the LM-Arte Fissura enables the gentle probing possible excess bonding resins on the tooth surfaces.
The conical tip is perfect for sculpting the anatomy of occlusal area of the posterior teeth. The fine, probe shaped tip is optimal for modeling fissures and mamelons as well as for layering characterization composites and sealants.
A silicone index is made from a lab wax-up. LM Arte Fissura is used to create a landmark of the area to be restored.
Dentin body is split in 3 mamelons and sculpt with LM Fissura extremely sharp tips.
Finish neatly, removing composite and bonding residue
An instrument designed for the removal of composite and bonding residue. This fine but solid instrument is characterized by an optimized length, thickness and width of the blade.
The special angulated working ends of the Eccesso are ideal for excess removal from cervical anterior and interproximal molar areas.
