TOFFLEMIRE-STYLE VS. SECTIONAL MATRIX SYSTEM 

 

Traditional Tofflemire-Style and Automatrix®-Style* Matrices

• Fails to restore proximal anatomy

• Thin contact at the marginal ridge

• Large food trap below

• Increased likelihood of fracture, occlusal interference, recurrent caries and periodontal disease Composi-Tight 3D XR System

• Operator-friendly retaining system

• Naturally contoured bands

• Anatomically correct contacts

• Contacts at the height of contour

• Contacts so tight you’ll need a hemostat to get the band out For Class II composite restorations, there is no better choice than the 3D XR Sectional Matrix System. 

 

WHAT MAKES A SECTIONAL MATRIX SYSTEM WORK?

Separation - 3D XR rings separate the teeth to help create tighter contacts. Sectional bands are easier to burnish to the adjacent tooth. 

Seal - Soft-Face™ tines perfectly adapt bands to margins for virtually zero flash. 

It’s a simple technique… 

 

1. PLACE MATRIX BAND.
Select a band that matches the height of the tooth, give it a little extra curl with your fingers and place it with the concave edge toward the occlusal margin. 

2. PLACE THE WEDGE.
Place a finger on the band to prevent dislodgment and firmly wedge to seal the gingival margin. 

3. PLACE THE RING.
Open the ring with Garrison Ring Placement Forceps and place it directly over the wedge. Seating it as far gingivally as possible.

4. PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE BEST CLASS II’S EVER!
