Dentist: A New and Revolutionary Tool for Composite Trimming

Restorations are an important part of today’s modern dentistry. An important part of the restoration process for the dentist is trimming the excess composite material which can be difficult with standard dental tools. Dental trimmers is new and revolutionary way to trim composite in class 2, 3, and 4, restorations. This innovative device acts as a scalpel, and it is effective in trimming and smoothing the extra bonding material without causing damage to the teeth and gums and restored area. This smart device is equipped with a wide handle for control and leverage. Proper use of this instrument is done by placing the handle between the thumb and forefinger. The angular shape of the tool makes it easier to access hard to reach places.


One of the unique features that sets this helpful tool apart from similar devices is that it can work effectively on composite bonding material even after it has been cured. For effective use, slide the dental trimmer between the teeth, and angle the blade towards the tooth. Make sure that the tool is underneath the overhanging bonding material. When using the tool for planing action, make sure that to aim the tool towards the area where the upper teeth meet the lower teeth or toward the area where the incisors are located.

Other devices such as finishing strips are only good for polishing the restoration area. The strips are unable to remove the extra bonding composite. Other tools that claim to enable the trimming task, are not as effective as dental trimmers because they have small handles which do not provide enough torque for trimming hard to smooth areas. Within 10-15 seconds, dental trimmers can smooth the restored area as well as removing additional composite debris. When dentists purchase dental trimmers, they will immediately notice the positive results.

This unique tool was developed over 15 years ago. After becoming fed-up with tools that did not properly remove the excess material, he decided to develop a tool that would get the job done right. He found that the scalpel worked well on the front teeth; however, it did not perform as well on the back teeth. So he implemented the use of a wide handle and curved blade to get to the back teeth and other hard to reach areas.
