Frequently Asked Questions

 

Question:

How are Inlay/Onlay Styx more efficient for aiding in the try-in and seating of inlays and onlays than using one’s fingers or other implements?

 

Answer:

Inlay/Onlay Styx are easy to use and are ideal for the positioning and seating of inlays and onlays during the try-in phase and during cementation. The Inlay/Onlay Styx tip holds the restoration securely within or around the tooth during the try-in phase, while the contacts are being checked with floss. This helps to prevent any chance of the patient accidentally swallowing the restoration during the try-in.

 

The slender, contoured design of the Inlay/Onlay Styx tip also enables you to seat inlays and onlays with a gentle and even distribution of pressure, giving the assurance of predictable results while enhancing the dentist’s vision during placement. The tips of the Inlay/Onlay Styx rotate to allow you or your assistant to approach the restoration from different angles, and also enables you to fit restorations that transverse both mesial-distal and buccal-lingual directions. This rotation, along with the slender design of the tips, help to keep the margins of the restoration clearly visible and accessible, allowing easy access for the light source, floss and interproximal serrated metal strips.

 

Question:

What makes the Inlay/Onlay Styx tips so unique?

 

Answer:

The Inlay/Onlay Styx tips are made of a semi-soft, flexible and slightly tacky material that is ideal for the positioning and seating of inlays and onlays during the try-in phase and during cementation.  Each tip has an internal hex, which allows it to rotate to allow you or your assistant to approach the restoration from different angles. It‘s slender design and elongated point of contact is designed to fit the occlusal groove of any molar or premolar restoration.  Additionally, Inlay/Onlay Styx are excellent for seating any posterior ceramic crown, as they apply just the right amount of gentle pressure without any slippage.  Inlay/Onlay Styx tips are also disposable, so they are compliant with infection control guidelines.

 

Question:

Can I use my new Inlay/Onlay Styx tips on my Veneer Styx handle and visa-versa?

If you already own the Veneer Styx® Starter Kit, you may purchase the Replacement Tips for the Inlay/Onlay Styx, and vica versa.
