This FREE 1 hour webinar is all about those Class II composites that aren't basic. When you’re ready to go beyond a typical MO, you’ll need the tips and tricks to ensure a predictable result. Advanced Sectional Matrix Techniques will give you the information to master the necessary skills. Join us live Tuesday, June 7th at 8:00 pm Eastern for this FREE event.
Dr. James Braun, one of Dentistry Today’s Top 100 Clinicians in Dental Education, will present case studies and relevant materials supporting his practical approach to Class IIs (AGD subject code 250). Methods and materials for eliminating post op sensitivity will be reviewed as well as how to achieve optimal interproximal contacts and contour. Then, it’s time to break out the typodont, latest composite, bonding agent and matrix system. Dr.
Until recently, products available to manage anterior composite restorations have remained largely unchanged. Now, new technology has emerged that has brought innovation to this area of dentistry. During the first part of this course, Dr. JD Corey will review a variety of anterior composite matrix systems and techniques.
There is no set number of expected uses. During internal testing, opening the ring to 10mm between the tips and placing it on a typical molar, the ring provides proper separating pressure for hundreds of cycles. Your use will vary depending on how far you open the rings to place them and if you're properly cleaning, sterilizing, and storing them between uses.
Yes and no. Use of the blue silicon carbide polisher is optional. The coarse blue polisher is used for faster removal and contouring and may not be necessary depending on the situation. The red medium grit and gray high shine should be used in the proper order to achieve the best possible polish.
The short blue Fusion matrix ring (FX400) has shorter tips for better engagement with short teeth. The blue ring also grips better in challenging locations such as the distal of the canine or on top of rubber dam clamps. The blue ring is also preferred for pedodontic applications.
The tall orange Fusion ring (FX500) has taller tips for proper matrix band adaptation on taller teeth. The orange ring is also designed to stack over top of the blue ring without interference for MOD or multiple tooth restorations.
The green Fusion ring (FX600) is for wide preparations where you may be missing a cusp or have an extra wide embrasure to restore where a traditional matrix ring would crumple your matrix band into the prep.
NiTin rings do not have soft silicone faces on the tips of the rings. Some clinicians prefer a hard faced ring instead of the adaptable soft silicone faced rings, much like other matrix rings on the market. The NiTin rings are Garrison's solution to meet those clinician's needs.
Fusion Anterior wedges may be used with any anterior matrix to improve its performance.
No. Any Garrison ring placement forceps will work. However, the new Fusion Forceps make placing the Fusion rings much easier. They have a different fulcrum point and tip positioning than previous forceps, making the super strong Fusion rings easier to open. This is particularly important for people with smaller hands or medical conditions such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome.
The coloring on the bands is a non-stick coating. It prevents bonding agents and composites from sticking to the metal material of the matrix bands. Some bonding agents will bond to uncoated stainless steel, making uncoated matrix bands very difficult to remove.
The stiff nature of the Fusion Anterior matrices will maintain proper interproximal anatomy regardless of how firmly composite is compressed into the restoration. Mylar is easily distorted, thereby necessitating difficult adjustments to critical interpoximal areas.
eZr is designed for use on today's ultra-hard restorative materials but is suitable for use on any ceramic. It is too aggressive for use on composite materials.
