These strips are flexible measuring instruments in three different thicknesses. They measure the height of the preparation on grinding teeth for restoration(e.g. crowns, bridges or telescopic crowns). The thicknesses of the Fleximeter Strips 1,0mm, 1,5mm and 2,0mm can also be used to enlarge the vertical dimension (height of bite). They  are made from a special silicone rubber that can be sterilised up to a temperature of 200°C (390°F).
