WedgeGuard MO/DO Case by Dr Graeme Milicich

  1. 1. WedgeGuard MO/DO Case<br />By Dr Graeme Milicich, BDS<br />
  2. 2. 1<br />There was insufficient movement in the teeth to allow for the placement of two WedgeGuards. The mesialWedgeGuard was placed first.<br />
  3. 3. 2<br />On small teeth, the guard may be a bit high so the height was adjusted with a high-speed bur to improve visual access during the cavity preparation.<br />
  4. 4. 3<br />Adjusted WedgeGuard.<br />
  5. 5. 4<br />Following completion of the mesial cavity, the metal protractor was removed with a pair of Pin-Tweezers, leaving the Wave-Wedge in place.<br />
  6. 6. 5<br />The second WedgeGuard was then easily placed to protect the distal once the pressure associated with the mesialWedgeGuard had been removed.<br />
  7. 7. 6<br />The WedgeGuard provided excellen security while preparing the margins of the cavity.<br />
  8. 8. 7<br />Completed distal cavity. The metal protector was then removed and the wedges were eased out to allow for the placement of the V3 Tab-Matrices. The wedge was then repositioned and the V3 Rings placed to secure the matrices and control the contact points.<br />
  9. 9. 8<br />V3 Tab-Matrices secured with the Wave-Wedge portion of the WedgeGuard, and V3 Rings in place prior to the restorative phase.<br />
  10. 10. 9<br />Completed case.<br />
