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.

Case Studies

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.

Case Studies

Class II Restoration MODB #4 and #5 using Composi-Tight 3D and 3DXR - Robert Rosenfeld, DDS

Robert Rosenfeld, DDS

The 3D rings do a beautiful job of preventing flash by pressing the sectional matrix band against the tooth to be restored. With the prior ring generation, there were some teeth whose anatomical shape resulted in pop-off. With the addition of the new 3DXR ring, that almost never happens. It has become the go-to ring, especially for more challenging situations.
