Product Safety, Clinical Tips & Instructions for Use
Wagostrips are hand held, single sided, finishing strips used for finishing a restoration in the posterior region of the mouth following use of the Wagotrix Sectional Matrix system. The Wagostrips are ideal to -
- smooth and/or finish interproximal composites;
- eliminate overhangs; and
- efficiently and simply achieve the optimal contacts.
- The Wagostrips in the Wagotrix Sectional Matrix System Intro Kit include (1) 1 Yellow 0.7mm single-sided straight; (2) 1 Yellow 0.7mm single-sided curved; and (3) 1 White 0.5mm contact breaker.
- As a safety precaution, prior to using the Wagostrips, secure the Wagostrips with a piece of dental floss through one of the tether holes located at the top of the Wagostrips handle and wrap the opposite end of the floss around one of your fingers to secure the Wagostrips to prevent inhalation.
- The depth limiting design prevents soft tissue injury, while the unique handle provides a comfortable grip for optimal tactile control, giving doctors easy access to interproximal spaces.
- Sterilize Wagostips prior to use following the instructions outlined below.
- Recommended use is 5-10 times prior to replacement
