System helps eliminate ring “spring-off,” even on difficult dentition.

SPRING LAKE, Michigan--Garrison Dental Solutions has introduced the Composi-Tight 3D XR Sectional Matrix System.

The Composi-Tight 3D XR Sectional Matrix Ring is an ultra-retentive matrix ring designed for use with short or malpositioned teeth, including areas between the canine and first bicuspid. The enhanced, Soft Face silicone helps ensure true matrix band adaptation that reduces flash and finishing time while improving contacts.

In addition, the dynamic tip angle allows for proper tip alignment with the buccal and lingual surfaces for precise adaptation. While the 3D XR ring was designed for use with difficult dentition, clinicians should find that it works well with standard height teeth.

The 3D XR ring is the newest addition to the Composi-Tight 3D Sectional Matrix System, which is designed to create tight, anatomical contacts on Class II composite restorations when used in conjunction with Garrison’s line of bands and wedges.

The contoured sectional matrix bands create proper tooth anatomy while two styles of rings create the required tooth separation and band adaptation for a tight, natural contact.

With Composi-Tight 3D XR, clinicians should experience consistent adaptation, easy placement over the wedge and no more “spring-offs” to interrupt restorative procedures.

The Composi-Tight 3D XR Sectional Matrix System is available in a variety of kit configurations. Introductory kits include 3D and 3D XR matrix rings, Slick Bands nonstick matrix bands, and anatomically designed, patient-friendly WedgeWands.

In addition, the Professional kit contains Composi-Tight matrix band forceps, ring placement forceps, and a multi-function composite instrument with two condensers, two blades, and an acorn carver.

Composi-Tight 3D raises the bar by eliminating ring “spring-off” inherent in systems on the market.
