Case Studies

Multiple Tooth Restorations using Composi-Tight 3D Clear, Pinch Matrices and PerForm - Jack D. Griffin, Jr., DMD, MAGD

Jack D. Griffin, Jr., DMD, MAGD

With multiple restorations in a quadrant, many practitioners will restore a single tooth at a time or every other tooth. It is often more difficult to place the subsequent matrices and so it is often more efficient to do all teeth at one time if possible. The ring and sectional systems from Garrison allow for predictable, broad and deep contacts with high efficiency. We are way past Tofflemire matrix holders and bulky retainers.

Cervical Decay, Ionomer Filling and Matrix System: An Alternative to Composite

Dr. David Gerdolle

Due to the location of the decay and poor interproximal hygiene, the cavity was filled using a glass ionomer cement.

Robert A. Lowe, DDS, FAGD, FICD, FADI, FACD

Charlotte, North Carolina
"The 3D Soft Face ring anatomically fills the facial and lingual embrasure spaces creating a more accurate fit of the sectional matrix to the cavosurface margin of the proximal box. The result...a perfect anatomically shaped proximal composite surface and marginal ridge with little to no contouring and finishing required."

Utilizing Innovative Matrix Systems to Achieve Predictable Anterior Direct Composite Restorations

Dory Stutman, DDS
Direct anterior composite restorations inherently demand precise placement of appropriately shaded composites, attention to anatomical characteristics, and thorough refinement of the embrasures, incisal edges, emergence profile, gingival margins, and proximal contacts. Whether to repair wear, caries, chips or factures, or to enhance tooth shape, size and color for esthetic reasons, direct anterior composite restorations can present clinicians with various technique-related challenges based on the clinical situation at hand.
