Crown and Bridge Cementation

When seating a bridge or a crown clean up is critical. Sometimes trying to thread the Superfloss through after seating the bridge can be difficult with the excess cement in the way, and stressful as the cement is setting.

So, when cementing a bridge, tie a Superfloss around the bridge before seating the restoration to help clean the excess cement from the pontic and connector area. Makes cleaning up quicker.

Similarly when cementing a crown, tucking the Superfloss interproximaly prior to seating the crown gives you more time and makes removing excess cement easier.
