NiTin™ Sectional Matrix System launched by Garrison Dental Solutions

July 11, 2019 - SPRING LAKE, Michigan

Garrison Dental Solutions, the premier manufacturer of sectional matrix systems since 1997, is pleased to announce its newest innovation, the NiTin™ Sectional Matrix System.

Used primarily for Class II posterior composite restorations, the NiTin™ system differentiates itself from the competition by its ring construction.  Created from drawn-wire Nitinol, a product used in medical device applications including orthodontics, the material undergoes a process of molecular alignment which produces unparalleled spring qualities, ensuring “like new” separating forces even after hundreds of uses.  Resiliency is reinforced with PEEK® (polyether ether ketone), a super-plastic renowned for its durability, which is used exclusively in the construction of the backer and tips.  Unlike non-drawn-wire nickel titanium, when compared to other rings on the market, the NiTin™ sectional matrix ring has been shown to provide superior resiliency and significantly longer life.

“This new system represents a major advancement in sectional matrix technology.  With a unique combination of materials, reflected in the only ring on the market manufactured with PEEK® and Nitinol, we hope clinicians are as pleased as we are with NiTin’s performance and enhanced capabilities versus other products on the market,” said Jason Phillips, Director of Marketing.  “Further, through Garrison’s advancements in manufacturing technology, we are able to introduce NiTin at a significantly lower price point compared to other nickel titanium rings.”

In addition to NiTin’s advanced matrix ring construction, the kit also comes with matrix bands developed with a significantly pronounced curvature, which makes replication of tooth shapes easier and more predictable.  Included in the kit are color-coded, anatomically-correct wedges to aid in separation and sealing of the band interproximally.  The system comes with ergonomically-designed ring placement forceps as well as band placement and removal forceps.
