If the composite filling does not have optimal contact surface to the adjacent tooth there will be food impaction.

The Aproxi® system solves the problem.

The Aproxi® system makes it easy and quick to achieve optimal contact surface to the adjacent tooth. The Aproxi® system consists of prefabricated composite inlays and a specially developed insertion instrument. The Aproxi® inlays are fabricated in three different sizes that fit the individual tooth preparation best. The Aproxi® system is used to obtain optimal contact surface to the adjacent tooth for composite restorations in molars and premolars.
The Aproxi® inlay is placed on the insertion instrument and is inserted into the uncured composite material. By means of the insertion instrument, the Aproxi® inlay can be pressed against the matrix band adjacent to the next tooth in a controlled and precise manner while it hardens and bonds to the composite restorative material. The specially developed insertion instrument lens conducts the light down into the Aproxi® inlay and ensures optimal polymerisation of the surrounding composite. When the Aproxi® inlay has been polymerised to the composite material, the insertion instrument is removed, and the Aproxi® inlay is left as an integral part of the composite restoration. The restoration is subsequently complete in accordance with the normal procedure.

The pressure is applied by either pulling or pushing the insertion instrument with the attached Aproxi® inlay in the un-polymerised composite against the matrix band/sectional matrix. The pressure that is applied to the adjacent tooth displaces the tooth in the direction of the pressure. Once the restoration has been completed, the tooth will revert back into place and compensate for the thickness of the matrix band when the band is removed. This results in optimal approximal contact surface being achieved.

The Aproxi® inlay distributes the un-polymerised composite optimally in the proximal cavity when it is pressed down into the uncured composite. In order to achieve the best possible approximal contact surface, the Aproxi® inlay has been designed so that it corresponds to the natural anatomical contact surface of the natural tooth.
