BurtonBands has announced the immediate availability of several new VursaWedge innovations, including the release of two new sizes – medium and large – and the addition of the Anatomical VursaWedge designed specifically for use in challenging furcation cases.
Invented by a practicing dentist, Dr Matthew Burton from the United States, the VursaWedge solves Class II procedural inefficiencies such as gingival seal issues, matrix contour issues and proximal contact issues in an easy-to-use device. With its proprietary split wedge design, a better seal at the gingival margin results in less flash, thereby achieving better results with less time needed for finishing and polishing.
“The flexible split wedge design of VursaWedge allows for proper contour and a tight gingival seal, as the two legs of the wedge splay out to effectively hold the matrix in place, creating a system that is fully compatible with all major ring systems,” said Dr Burton. “The current small size VursaWedge is ideal for use in healthy gingiva cases with little-to-no attachment loss. However, I quickly realised that larger sizes would be needed to overcome larger embrasure cases, and that’s where the new medium and large size VursaWedges come into play.”
Additionally, Dr Burton developed a specialsed VursaWedge for use with cases involving furcation. Due to its unique convex contour, the aptly named Anatomical VursaWedge allows clinicians to predictably seal difficult furcation cases.
VursaWedge is available to dentists in the US and Canada through an exclusive distribution agreement with Young Specialties.
