Garrison Dental Solutions, a manufacturer of sectional matrix systems used for Class II composite restorations, has introduced a new line of nonstick sectional matrix bands: the Composi-Tight 3D Fusion Full Curve Matrix Bands, based on more than 20 years of research and development.
The 3D Fusion Full Curve Matrix Band features a more radical curvature that allows the band to wrap further around the tooth and stay out of the clinician’s way during the restorative procedure. Further, placement is improved with the new Grab-Tab, which provides control with any placement instrument. In addition, the new matrices are coated with Garrison’s proprietary SlickBands nonstick coating. According to the manufacturer's internal data, this nonstick coating reduces the adhesion of bonding agents and composites by 92%, ensuring that the bands will slide out, regardless of the procedure. Finally, the soft bands include improved subgingival extensions and added length.
The 3D Fusion Full Curve Matrix Bands work in concert with a sectional matrix system. The bands are available in an assorted kit and in a range of five sizes: pedo/bicuspid, pedo/bicuspid with subgingival extension, molar, tall molar, and tall molar with subgingival extension.
