"In the 12 years I've been using this system, I have not had any problems. It is stronger and gives much better retention. I really like it."
--Kenneth Nevar DDS - Willoughby, OH
"I have been using the Kurer K4 Anchor System for 15 years. It's simple, and it works -- as opposed to losing them."
--Michael Uss DDS - Onalaska, WI
"The Kurer System is very retentive and yet kind to the tooth. There is less chance of splitting the tooth. I have been using it for 18 years."
--Robert Murray DDS - Glenwood Springs, CO
"I like than you can easily adjust the length and still get good retention. It works for me, especially on bicuspids. I have been using it for 10 years."
--Tom Bucker DDS - Johnson City, NY
"It's simple. There is no rotation problem. It does the job. It's good. I like it. "

* The K4 Anchor Concept uses a sharp, three bladed Thread Cutter 20-25 microns wider all round than the matching threaded shank.
* The unique K4 cutting profile ensures there will be no lateral contact between the crest of the threads and the canal wall. The space so created becomes a cement buffer.
* The overall parallel configuration and the buffer layer of cement contribute to the distribution of forces.*
* There are 72 threads to the inch (0.35 mm pitch), creating a larger surface area for optimum retention and stress distribution.
* The K4 post does NOT flex, it is rigid. It cannot bend away from the preparation, producing optimum retention and stress distribution.
* The crest of the K4 thread is rounded. No sharp line angles exist which can cause points of stress concentration.
* The K4 Anchor achieves a passive fit in the preparation, it can easily be screwed in by hand; try the same with self-threaded posts and feel the difference. The vital difference!
