2 AIR ROTOR STRIPPING - Adult Orthodontics Create up to 8mm of space in a single arch without extraction or expansion. A level of safety has been added to the Air-Rotor Stripping Technique. Safe-Tipped Air-Rotor Stripping (STARS TM ) Burs The STARS series of burs has been developed to assure the precision reduction of interproximal enamel while drastically reducing the possibility of excessive bur-induced grooves. The STARS burs are specifically designed for air-rotor stripping. For quality, precision and durability, the STARS series are the finest on the market. There is no comparable product. Dr Jack Sheridan, originator of the Air-rotor Stripping Technique, has tested and endorsed the STARS series of burs. He states, The development of a series of safe-tipped air-rotor stripping burs is an additional assurance that physiologically acceptable proximal walls can be obtained during the air-rotor stripping procedure without the danger of inadvertently damaging enamel surfaces. I strongly recommend their use. Conventional tipped bur may notch proximal enamel wall Safe-tipped ARS(STARS) bur can not notch proximal enamel walls STARS Bur Kit BK Kit includes: A sterilisable 10 piece bur block Four safe-tipped cross-cut carbide fissure burs ( ST) Two medium-particle size (100 microns) Safe-tipped finishing diamond burs ( MDST) Two fine-particle size (30 microns) Safe-tipped finishing diamond burs ( FDST) Two anterior fine needle diamond burs Non safe tipped. For anterior interproximal stripping. Open field not necessary.

3 Incremental Thickness Gauge Six stainless steel gauges for measuring interproximal spaces. A set consists of the following thicknesses: 0.1mm, 0.2mm, 0.25mm, 0.3mm, 0.4mm and 0.5mm. Incremental Thickness Gauge 6 per set The Sheridan Interdental Space Measuring Gauge The Sheridan Space Measuring Gauge is a multipurpose instrument constructed from laser-etched stainless steel that is impervious to alteration from conventional sterilising mediums. The gauge consists of a series of cylinders, of progressively increasing diameters, which can measure natural or created interdental space from.75 to 3.0mm in increments of.25mm. The diameter of each cylindrical section of the gauge is correlated with the indication on the handle. The Sheridan Gauge enables the clinician to: (1) Measure naturally occurring generalized spacing. (2) Measure and chart the amount of enamel that may be removed during stripping procedures. (3) Aid in the establishment of parallel proximal walls during enamel reduction. (4) Tuck ligatures with the knurled tip of the large end. (5) Obtain indications of the severity of periodontal pocket depth. Sheridan Gauge G The STARS Manual A compilation of STARS literature, including articles and notes of Dr Jack Sheridan, the clinician who developed the technique. This illustrated how to and why to manual includes technique details, research data, periodontal and various rationale. STARS Manual Ortho-Care (UK) Ltd. Facsimile: Website:
