Matrix Bands CATEGORY DESCRIPTION
Dental practitioners know that matrix bands play an important role in restorative dentistry. Using these small and effective tools, dentists are able to isolate one or more teeth, making it easier for them to view specific areas for their restoration processes. Furthermore, they help to protect the tooth or teeth being worked on, as well as the other teeth surrounding that area.
In recent decades, there have been significant improvements in the materials used to construct matrix bands, as well as improvements to their shapes and sizes. Today, matrix bands are contoured to mimic the actual shape of an anatomically correct tooth, making them easier to place and use. There are several excellent examples on the market for dental practitioners to choose from.
In addition, some matrix bands are coated with nonstick material, which prevents them from sticking to bonding agents and facilitates placement and removal from the tooth. Considering the frequent use of adhesives in restorations, removal can become difficult if the band becomes stuck to the tooth. Further increasing the ease of the process, bands can be easily removed with specially designed tweezers that offer a precise and secure grip around the bands.
To further improve visibility, matrix rings can clamp onto the teeth being worked on and isolate the area. With ring forceps to open the clamps wide enough to fit onto the tooth, restoration of the isolated area is an easier process for dental practitioners.
The best matrix products on the market are long-lasting and easy for dental practitioners to use. Dentists should look for products that promote precision, visual acuity, and ease of use when considering the tools necessary for their restorations. Keeping these qualities in mind, dental practitioners can choose matrix products that will benefit both themselves and their patients.
