NTI® Soft Tissue Trimmer

Integrating new technology into a modern dental practice has become an everyday fact of life. Some of these new clinical products make clinical chairside dentistry less complicated and more productive. The NTI® Soft Tissue Trimmer by Kerr Rotary, is a flame shaped hard oxide ceramic cylinder. It is used in the high-speed handpiece at full RPM without water coolant spray to excise and contour soft gingival tissue with minimal bleeding. Unlike radiosurgery or electrosurgery, there is little risk of over-heating the surgical site and compromising the bone.
