Dri-Angle Plain Small Box 400 - Dental Health Products
Dri-Angle is a thin, absorbent, cellulose triangle that provides an alternative to cotton rolls to provide a dry field for a variety of dental procedures including composite restorations as well as cementing and bonding. The silver coating is on one side and provides a complete moisture barrier and is ideal for orthodontics.

Placement technique: The Dri-Angle has been contoured to fit the inside of the cheek. Choose the small or large size for the particular patient. Place the convex side against the cheek with the apex of the Dri-Angle as far back as possible. The apex should almost touch the retro-molar pad area.
Use a double thickness of Dri-Angles or use the silver coated Dri-Angle. The silver coating acts as a complete moisture barrier to ensure absolute dryness.
If the Dri-Angle has not become saturated with saliva, wet thoroughly with a squirt of water before removing it from the cheek. If the Dri-Angle is not thoroughly wet, it can stick to the cheek and pull away tissue.
Dri-Angle as a tongue Protector
Dri-Angle can protect the tongue when preparing teeth in the lower bicuspid and molar area. Have the patient extent the tongue and place the tip of the tongue in the opposite buccal fold. Place a small Dri-Angle against the tongue where it will adhere slightly and give complete protection.
