INTERPROXIMAL REDUCTION (aka Slenderizing, Stripping, Selective Enamel Reduction and Reproximation)

Interproximal reduction (IPR)????of enamel involves the removal of outer enamel (0.3ƒ?????0.5 mm) on the interproximal surfaces of teeth.????IPR is one of the techniques that may be used during orthodontic treatment to provide extra intra-arch space in patients with mild to moderate crowding and when extraction therapy is undesirable.????

Other advantages of IPR include decreased treatment time????and prevention of interdental gingival retraction.

It is also a means to acquire additional space to create ideal tooth alignment.

Interproximal enamel stripping has become an effective orthodontic treatment approach to regain space, improve tooth and gum aesthetics as well as maintain post-treatment stability. Nevertheless, orthodontists should choose appropriate indications by balancing between its benefits and risks.

IPR possesses????unique advantages????in facilitating better treatment outcome in a more conservative and physiological way without harming dental or periodontal tissue.


  • In cases of Crowding / relapse of crowding
  • In malocclusion cases where extraction is not mandatory
  • To correct black triangles in between the teeth
  • In cases when relapses have taken place, stripping is advisable to allow realignment without labial tipping of anterior teeth into unstable position
  • IPR is used for cosmetic re-contouring, most commonly in reshaping canines to mimic lateral incisors
