Go to AccuFILM ® OCCLUSAL MARKING FILM • Super thin for greater precision. • Won't trigger mandibular reflexes that might skew the bite. • Consistently produces sharp, easy-to-interpret marks. • No false markings. • It stretches, but doesn't break. There's no snap-back to distort the marks. • Features the highest plastic deformation of all major brands tested. USING A LASER? In the field of laser dentistry, many doctors use AccuFilm ® for laser tip initiation. This "carbonization" of the tip partially prevents laser light from exiting the fiber, essentially turning the tip into a hot glass rod that is primed to vaporize the soft- tissue that it directly contacts. You simply move the flat surface of the laser's fiber tip across a piece of AccuFilm and this will effectively block the tip. So, you see, like many Parkell products that handle multiple tasks, AccuFilm is much more than just an exceptional occlusal marking system! For decades, AccuFilm has been the standard for marking occlusion. Why? Well for starters, it measures the thinnest—a mere 21 microns thick. As a result of its super thinness, patients don't sense anything between their teeth when they are biting down. It doesn't take years of study to figure out that thicker products not only increase the size of the marks left on the tooth, but they also stimulate proprioceptive reactions that deviate the mandible. 1,2 A study in the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation not only showed AccuFilm I and AccuFilm II as being the thinnest of the products tested (Figure 1), but also determined that AccuFilm elicited muscle activity similar to that of natural occlusion. 3 What also separates AccuFilm from other occlusal marking systems is its elasticity—it has the highest plastic deformation of all major brands of articulating paper. AccuFilm stretches and stays that way so there's no chance of distortions on the marks due to rebound or breakage. 1 Schelb E, Kaiser DA, Brukl CE.
