"I love the Blue View Cervical Matrix! It works so well. My assistants love watching me use this system. The patients love the excitement in our faces. It makes the process easy and fast. Gotta love that! We are also hooked on using the ReelMatrix. Thanks so much for making great products."
"The Composi-Tight 3D and 3D XR together with the slick bands is the best clamp-matrix system I've ever tried. Class II restorations are tight, anatomical, fast, easy and reproducible. The soft tines fit perfectly to lateral-posterior and even short teeth, eliminating flash and reducing time-consuming finishing procedures. Slick bands perfectly adapt to all Class II situations, even the subgingival ones, and the non-stick coating helps band removal. Finally, I must say that Composi-Tight 3D is the best system ever produced to help dentists in restoring interproximal walls. To get something better, we should only wait for Garrison's next bestseller!"
"Composi-Tight Gold is a great matrix for predictable tight contacts with anatomical contours. There are some dental products which I can't practice without."
Only 3D rings are designed with a firm core that directs the ring tension interproximally where it produces more separation. Only 3D rings have soft silicone on the face of the tines to “hug” the matrix band to the tooth. Flash is virtually eliminated. And only 3DXR and 3D Fusion rings are designed to tenaciously grip virtually any tooth preventing ring “spring-off”.
We strongly recommend that you use Garrison ring placement forceps. They are specially designed to open our rings and for ease of use. Rubber dam forceps do not fit the rings well and you will not be able to open the ring wide enough in many cases.
Providing “pre-separation” will help. The preferred method is to use a Garrison FenderWedge during tooth preparation. The FenderWedge will start to separate the teeth while your are cutting the preparation. When the prep is complete, remove the FenderWedge and immediately place the matrix band. Using a traditional wedge for pre-separation will also work, but it will not protect the adjacent tooth from accidental burr contact.
Alternatively, placement of a G-Ring or 3D ring on the tooth for a few minutes prior to matrix band placement will also produce separation. After the ring has been in place for a few minutes, remove the ring and immediately place the matrix band.
Composi-Tight matrix bands can be burnished further than a traditional matrix, but if the distance is too far you will need to employ one of the larger, wider matrices.
It is the combination of the separating force produced by both the ring and the wedge that stretches the periodontal ligament. Reducing the size of the wedge will lighten the contacts. Contacts that are too tight can be lightened with the use of a fine diamond finishing strip.
Use of SlickBands or SlickBands XR with their non-stick coating will greatly simplify matrix band removal. Additionally, our Matrix Forceps with their carbide teeth, provide excellent grip on ultra-thin matrices for easier removal.
