"In today’s modern dental practice, efficient systems that yield the best esthetic and functional success are a must. Nothing makes it easier, faster or less traumatic than Bob’s packer. It is a must have!"
Clinician Testimonial

Dr. Richard Field

United Kingdom
"The new Marginal Elevation bands from Garrison are a true revelation! Their reduced height and pronounced curve makes close adaptation of the bands to the deep margin easy without having to resort to cutting standard matrix strips. By allowing us to raise the margins of deep restorations without removing the rubber dam they are a must for anyone providing adhesive dentistry!"
Clinician Testimonial

Todd Brower, DDS

Holland, MI
“The eZr is the only polishing system that actually polishes zirconia smooth. Research tells us that zirconia is not over-abrasive to opposing dentition so long as it is polished to smooth. The eZr system in the only one I’ve tried that does this. With all the other kits, there are still visible bur marks after polishing.”

"With a review from 25 evaluation team members and used on 218 patients, the Reel Matrix by Garrison Dental Solutions was welcomed with open arms to all the dental assistants who used it."

Class II DO on Second Bicuspid using Composi-Tight 3D Clear - Enrico Cogo, DDS

Enrico Cogo, DDS

The 3D Clear system combines transparent and translucent materials to allow for trans-enamel polymerization. You can apply the curing light from both the buccal and lingual surfaces without interference from metal matrix bands and opaque separator rings. This easily allows for proper curing of deeper proximal boxes and is also beneficial for bulk-filling Class II restorations.

Len Boksman, DDS, BSC, FADI, FICD

This case study is taken from an article previously published in Oral Health and presents a predictable method of obtaining tight, well contoured, interproximal restorations utilizing separation rings. Clinical predictability is assured when following this protocol.  Figure #5 is courtesy of Dr. David Clark.  Of the ring systems currently available, Composi-Tight 3D gives the author one of the most predictable results.
