matrices and accessors for
class 2 treatment
Definition of matrices
Matricing is the procedure whereby a
temporary wall is created opposite to axial
walls, surrounding area of tooth structure that
were lost during preparation
Function of the matrices
A Matrix Must Provide:
Temporary wall of resistance against condensation
Shape and contour for the restoration
To restore anatomic contour and contact areas
Criteria for successful matrix band
Good adaptation and contour
Stabilized (wedge and compound)
1.0 mm gingival to gingival wall
Will not stick to composite
Does not crumple during placement
Types of matrices
PinkBand is a silicone-coated matrix
band for use when placing composite
restorations. The silicone coating may
provide an additional seal against
moisture contamination within the
confines of the band, and it can also
facilitate removal of the band.
PinkBand is a Tofflemire -style band
and is available in Universal, Pedo and
Paraband Tofflemire Matrix Bands save time and
improve the quality of restorations with their more
Direct Class II composites are simpler and faster to set
up, often with no wedges or separating springs
required. Restore teeth in a neutral, stable position
with predictable broad and deep contacts. Large
MODs will become routine.
For direct Class III, IV and V composites, the band
provides better isolation of the prep, as well as a
stable matrix for condensing composite. Bonding to
subgingival preparations is simpler due to the
isolation and access provided

All-in-one U dental
Invented by a dentist, U Dental Matrix Bands are a
new generation of matrices designed to save time
and ensure tight, predictable Class II contacts.
With no need for Tofflemires, forceps or retainers
rings, these are the only matrix bands held from
the buccal and lingual by an integrated spring clip
handle, creating a natural curve.
This all-in-one sectional band is easy to insert and
remove by hand-no more fighting with sectional
components! If needed, a wedge of your choice
may be used for added stability. For adjacent
restorations, place bands back to back and finish
Available in three sizes, molar and pre-molar
bands are 1/4 wide. Narrower pre-molar bands
are 3/16 wide and also suitable for deciduous
teeth. Now 0.0015 thin!

Palodent Plus Retainer
Ring Universal Two-
The Palodent Plus Retainer Ring Universal
Two-Pack with Nickel-Titanium spring
provides outstanding separation force
and memory. Glass fiber-reinforced V-
shaped tines accommodate the wedge
and allow you to wedge from both sides
before or after ring placement. Wide
tines help the system remain stable even
on significantly damaged teeth or when
a cusp is missing. Anatomical geometry
reduces slippage and minimizes flash.
Stackable for efficiency and versatility.

Slick Bands XR 3D
Matrices with extension
Modern bonding agents do a fantastic job of
bonding resins to tooth structure.
Unfortunately, they also do a good job of
bonding the matrix band to the restoration.
Non-stick Slick Bands Sectional Matrices are
the first sectional matrix bands to virtually end
the problem of difficult-to-remove matrix
bands. With a micro-thin coating bonded to
dead-soft stainless steel, Slick Bands provide a
92% reduction in band adhesion!
Super smooth coating makes bands easier to
insert on conservative preps.
High-contrast colors allow for better
visualization of prep margins and easier

coating, Slick Bands Tofflemire
Matrices virtually eliminate the problem
of hard-to-remove matrix bands.

Clear Matrix Band
The award-winning Composi-Tight 3D
Clear Sectional Matrix System combines
transparent and translucent materials to
allow for cure-through polymerization.
Now you can apply your curing light
from both the buccal and lingual
surfaces without interference from metal
matrices and opaque separator rings.
Enables proper curing of deeper
proximal boxes and is also beneficial
when bulk-filling Class II restorations.
Innovative LumiContrast Sectional
Matricesprotect your eyes from unnecessary
strain caused by poor visualization.
Matte blue surface delivers high visual
contrast between matrix and tooth color.
Low reflection level prevents a blinding effect
that often occurs with shiny metal matrices-a
must-have when working with intense light
High-tech, permanent coloration will not
contaminate materials or cavities.
