1To move GripStrip through the contact, place the uncoated section of the strip at the contact and exert a slight horizontal movement. NOTE: Do not twist, bend or pull strip too tightly or strip may break. For tight contacts, insert a wedge to create a slight separation between the teeth. To break a contact, use Centrix ProxiDiscs® Proximal Separator Discs.
2Using a back and forward movement, first work the more abrasive side of the GripStrip followed by the less abrasive side to shape and smooth the tooth surfaces until desired result is reached. Fine GripStrips should only be used for polishing and stain removal. NOTE: Skipping a grit size may reduce the quality of the final restoration.
3Remove the GripStrip by first positioning the uncoated segment at the contact and then slide out with a vertical movement. NOTE: Do not remove the GripStrip through the contact area using the diamond-coated sides.
4The tabs at the end of each GripStrip enable easy grasping. When space is tight or more control is needed, grasp the GripStrip closer to the midline and use normally.
