The V3 Ring has the widest indications for use of any sectional matrix ring. The only nickel-titanium ring, the V3 ensures optimal separation forces to produce perfect, tight contacts and an anatomically correct Class II composite restoration.

Clinical Case Improving proximal contours for direct resin restorations by Dr Gregori Kurtzman US: 1-800-811-3949 UK: 0800-311-2097 CA: 1-866-316-9007 NZ: 0800-TRIODENT INT: +64-7-549-5612 AU: 1-800-350-421 If you have a great new product idea or wish to contact us for more information on our great products, go to www.triodent.com/product-information-request.
  2. 2. Improving proximal contours for direct resin restorations Gregori M. Kurtzman, DDS One of the most challenging aspects of direct posterior resin restorations is achieving good proximal contacts with proper contours. This can become especially challenging when the resulting proximal preparation is wide and the adjacent tooth leaves a large space interproximally. The goals of posterior direct restorations include: 1-3 These goals often are not met routinely as circumferential • Tight contact with the adjacent tooth’s matrices tend to constrict the buccal and lingual contours, proximal surface resulting in inadequate contacts and poor anatomical form. • Contour gingival to the contact that fills the 4-5 Sectional matrix and ring retainers were introduced in an space without food traps attempt to combat this and allow the practitioner to achieve • Buccal and lingual contours that prevent food better contacts and contours. But those also had some impaction interproximally challenges when the proximal preparation resulted in a box that extended to include a portion of the buccal and lingual walls or space was present between the tooth being treated and the adjacent tooth. The proximal tines of most rings would jump into the preparation and have no tooth structure to brace against. This resulted in a constricted contact and narrowed anatomy of the restoration. US: 1-800-811-3949 UK: 0800-311-2097 CA: 1-866-316-9007 NZ: 0800-TRIODENT INT: +64-7-549-5612 AU: 1-800-350-421 If you have a great new product idea or wish to contact us for more information on our great products, go to www.triodent.com/product-information-request.

  3. 3. Improving proximal contours for direct resin restorations Gregori M. Kurtzman, DDS 1 2 Triodent V3 Ring straddling the wedge placed interproximally. The Triodent V3 Rings, molar (green) and premolar (yellow). The newest generation rings, such as the V3 (Triodent, The added benefit is that proximal separation is greater, Katikati, New Zealand), were developed to overcome the making for a tighter final contact. As all teeth are not created negatives of the prior rings available. These rings have wider equal, no single ring is ideal for every situation and what fits tines that are able to contact more tooth structure even when a molar proximal may not be ideally suited for a premolar preparation has eliminated portions of the buccal and lingual contact. With that in mind, Triodent provides two different cusps interproximally or there is a greater distance with sized V3 Rings, a green for molar contacts and a yellow for the adjacent tooth. As with its predecessor the V-Ring, the premolar contacts. (Figure 2) tines are designed to straddle the wedge instead of sitting adjacent to it, making placement easier. (Figure 1)6-8 US: 1-800-811-3949 UK: 0800-311-2097 CA: 1-866-316-9007 NZ: 0800-TRIODENT INT: +64-7-549-5612 AU: 1-800-350-421 If you have a great new product idea or wish to contact us for more information on our great products, go to www.triodent.com/product-information-request.

Preparation for a MOD direct restoration on a mandibular first molar with an open contact on the distal. An added improvement from their original ring is that the Case report: tines have an increased angle to the ring’s loop, making A typical clinical situation involves the need to restore it easier to stack the rings for placement on adjacent both proximal surfaces on the same tooth. This as proximals when both the mesial and distal will be restored discussed can be challenging, especially when caries on the same tooth. (Figure 3) removal requires more of the interproximal to be removed. The goal in today’s restorative dentistry is to conserve as much tooth structure as possible and only remove carious dentin and enamel. But this can still result in challenges to restoring the interproximals. The patient presented with an open contact between the first and second molars with resulting interproximal caries as a result of chronic food impaction. Following caries removal it was noted that the distal box was relatively wide, but the mesial box preparation was narrow due to the minimal caries in this area. (Figure 4) US: 1-800-811-3949 UK: 0800-311-2097 CA: 1-866-316-9007 NZ: 0800-TRIODENT INT: +64-7-549-5612 AU: 1-800-350-421 If you have a great new product idea or wish to contact us for more information on our great products, go to www.triodent.com/product-information-request.

Direct resin restoration following placement of Artiste nano composite prior to finishing. 16 The restoration was light-cured from the buccal, followed by the lingual and finally the occlusal surfaces. (Figure 14) The restoration is now ready for finishing and polishing. (Figure 15) The Triodent V3 Rings, wedges and matrices are removed. (Figure 16) As the proximal contacts are often very tight as a result of this ring system, it may be necessary to use a locking hemostat to remove the matrix. Needle-shaped finishing carbides and diamonds are used to remove any flash on the buccal and lingual. This was followed by football shaped carbides and diamonds to contour the cavosurface margin. (Figure 16) Final polishing was performed by Fini polishing disks (Pentron Clinical Technologies, Wallingford, CT) followed by polishing paste on a felt point (Pentron Retainers, wedges and sectional matrices removed. Clinical Technologies, Wallingford, CT).

Conclusion: Posterior direct resin restorations can be accomplished resulting in good proximal contours and tight contacts with the Triodent V3 Ring, matrices and wedges. Combined with a simple layering technique using Artiste composite, this allows replication of natural esthetics and anatomy.
