Dental Tribune United Kingdom Edition

I use the BK86 Arti-Spot® Highspot-Indicator (red) which is a contact colour for testing the accuracy of fit of crowns, inlays, onlays, tel- escopic crowns and clasps. It is applied to the test surface with a brush. The solvent evaporates in seconds, leav- ing a thin film 3µ thick. Every contact destroys skin colour exactly at the point of contact. The base material then shines through and high spots can be easily detected. Arti-Spot® can easily be removed after use. Hot wa- ter, mechanical friction (eg toothbrush or floss), alcohol, isopropyl alcohol and steam- ing will also loosen residual colour deposits. Marking on dental plaster can also be re- moved with a fine brush. Checking interocclusal clearance during tooth preparation The Fleximeter-Strips (BK 253) are a useful innovation ‘By understand- ing the design and differences between articulating papers allows the dentist to make accurate and precise mark- ings. This will then help more accurate adjustments to be made rather than “just chasing the blue marks’ Fig 5 Fig 6 Fig 8 Fig 7 15ClinicalApril 15-21, 2013United Kingdom Edition Bausch PROGRESS 100® ’s blue markings work as a bonding agent and form a contrasting background for precise occlusal markings.

The combination of Bausch PROGRESS 100® Articulating Paper, 100 microns, and Arti-Fol® metallic, 12 micron, articulating film offers considerable advantages, especially on occlusal surfaces like gold or ceramic which are difficult to examine. The first test should be made with blue articulating paper. Markings are immediately evident since the bonding agent of PROGRESS 100, Transculase® , is transferred as a fine coating. The next step is to use a thin film (preferably red) because of its intensity and excellent contrast with blue. The colour transfer properties of the film are considerably enhanced by the PROGRESS 100® s bonding agent. This method offers the utmost reliability in accurately identifying high spot markings.
