Discus Dental Ushers in the New Generation of Impression Trays With the Addition to Its Gripper™ Product Line

CULVER CITY, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 10, 2007 -- Discus Dental announced today the introduction of a new addition to its Gripper™ line tray products. The new proprietary Sideless Posterior Gripper Tray features a unique patent-pending polymer resin/metal hybrid design. The new rigid, disposable double-bite tray provides the ultimate in rigidity and patient comfort.

The Sideless Posterior Gripper Tray offers a sleek, super-rigid design, ideal for the majority of vinyl polysiloxane (VPS) impression applications. The new tray includes a stainless steel wire of only 0.055" in the retro molar pad area and the handle has been offset to the side for easier placement. This new extension to the Gripper line has been designed to substantially increase impression accuracy and patient comfort. With its large thumb-control handle, Gripper Trays provide clinicians a stable and steady grip during tray insertion and removal. In addition the tray's handle has a matte finish that can be written on for easy patient identification and date recording. The Gripper Tray line is also available in various other styles (anterior, full arch, full arch large, 3/4 arch & posterior).

"Our new Sideless Posterior Gripper Tray has been thoughtfully developed through the feedback and suggestions we have received from dental professionals throughout the country. Our goal is to make quality products that facilitate ease of use for the professional and ensure the comfort for our customers' patients," stated Robert Hayman, President & CEO, Discus Dental.
