CORONAflex Crown and Bridge Remover
Crown and Bridge Remover
Removing crowns and bridges is a potential problem you would like to avoid and clearly, one problem that ranks high in patient discomfort. KaVo's CORONAflex makes prosthesis removal quick, easy and safe.
CORONAflex crown and bridge remover utilizes compressed air to produce a precisely controlled and powerful impact that is delivered to the tip of the instrument. The energy created by this impulse destroys the adhesive qualities of the layer of cement below the surface of the prosthesis, removing it undamaged in most cases.
As a result, the dangers of breakage created by traditional leverage techniques are eliminated. More importantly, patient comfort is greatly enhanced.
The CORONAflex system contains dental forceps and clamps to be used for crown removal and a loopholder/loops for bridge removal.

Removing a Crown
The CORONAflex crown remover has a selection of reusable accessories suitable for all shapes, sizes and types of crowns and bridges.Here is how the CORONAflex is applied:
- Switch off the water spray on the treatment unit
- Attach the CORONAflex to the MULTIflex coupler
- Activate compressed air via the foot control. Keep the foot control pedal depressed
- The impact impulse is triggered manually via the trigger button on the instrument
- Remove your finger from the trigger button to allow the instrument to reset for the next impulse
Step 1- The Forceps
Position the forceps below the height of contour or at the margin of the crown.
Position the CORONAflex crown remover against the forcep arch to ensure an axial pulling direction.
Depending on the kind of cement used, several impact pulses may be necessary.
Step 2- The Loop
For removing bridge elements in the anterior and posterior regions. The loop is threaded under the bridge as close to the anchor tooth as possible. The loop is then connected to the loop holder.
Position the CORONAflex against the loop holder. Applying pressure to the loop holder in an axial direction to the root, and triggering the impact impulse are usually necessary for this procedure.
Step 3- The Clamp
In 80% of the cases, the forcep technique prevails for crowns but the CORONAflex clamp may be an option for difficult posterior cases. With the addition of the loop technique for bridges, you have a complete selection of solutions at your fingertips for a fast, effective prosthesis removal.
