Composi-Tight 3D XR Sectional Matrix System
The enhanced, Soft Face silicone ensures true matrix band adaptation that reduces both 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 Composi-Tight 3D XR matrix ring was designed for use with difficult dentition, it also works well with standard height teeth. Garrison Dental’s FenderWedge, included in the kit, can aid in placing the Composi-Tight 3D XR in conservative class 2 by “pre-separating” the teeth while the clinician prepares the tooth. When the preparation is done, the clinician can simply remove the FenderWedge and slide the band into place.
Instrumenting and Restoring a Deep Carious Lesion
A patient presented with a rather extensive radiographic carious lesion on the distal aspect of tooth No. 4. The carious penetration in the central groove was opened up using a Fissurotomy bur (SS White Burs) to gain conservative access to the active lesion below. The proximal portion of the preparation is extended to allow access for removal of the caries. Also, a diode laser (Picasso, AMD Lasers) was used to remove the interproximal tissue and gain better access to the gingival margin of the cavity for matrix placement. When the convenience and access forms of the cavity were completed,...Read More

The best system for predictable Class IIs
Former Tofflemire user...Garrison's 3D system is hands-down the best sectional on the market. I get awesome contacts, minimal finishing due to the silicone tips that afford a perfect band seal, and it's quick and easy. I can't say enough about this system: ditch your Tofflemire bands and improve your game!
