f Continued, ‘The Fender …’ DENTAL TRIBUNE | April 2010 Industry News 17A AD There are many uses of the Velopex Aquacut Quattro Fluid Air Abrasion Unit. Here are some of them: • minimally invasive and cos- metic dentistry, • patient-friendly stain removal and cavity preparation, • fast, efficient cutting and cleaning, • ideal for repair of composites. The Aquacut Quattro will give you greater control and flexibility than any other piece of equipment you own. Some of its other benefits include: • no vibration, turbine noise, heat generation or smell, • greatly reduced need for local anesthesia, • a handpiece that creates a fluid curtain around the pow- der medium, • a triple-action foot control that speeds treatment by allowing cut, wash and dry operations through the same handpiece, • no chipping or stress fractur- ing, • minimal loss of sound tooth material.

(Photo/Velopex) Velopex’s air abrasion unit fits many occasions The combined wedge and matrix design of FenderMate means that it may be applied quickly without the fumbling of tradition multiple-piece matrix- ing. A flexible “wing” on the wedge ensures a sealed cervi- cal margin, thus avoiding the possibility of overhang occur- ring. The matrix is pre-curved to adapt to the tooth and has a pre-shaped contact point. No retaining ring is required. FenderMate has already made a tremendous impact worldwide and was rated as one of the best new products in the dental field in 2009. The product is available in four sizes: left/right and nar- row/regular, and is color-coded for ease of identification. It is available as an assorted kit of four boxes, each box containing 18 pieces, or as separate boxes.
