WedgeGuard Wedge System
WedgeGuard's wedge remains in place throughout interpromixal cavity cutting, eliminating the need to slow down and reducing the risk of gingival trauma.
Triodent's WedgeGuard is designed to prevent damage to the adjacent tooth and papillae when cutting an interproximal cavity, enabling faster and better preps. Like other guards, it keeps the bur from nicking the adjacent tooth. What makes WedgeGuard unique is what happens after cavity prep; the wedge stays in place after the shield is detached, minimizing gingival trauma.
WedgeGuard is ideal for class II and III cavities, veneers and crowns, and tunnel preps. It comes in small, medium and large sizes.
Stepping into the Matrix
As a result of the complexities involved with the placement of composite resin in the posterior dentition, developments in matrix system technology have emerged, such as improvements in matrix design and interdental separation techniques. These innovations have allowed the dentist to achieve the most advantageous proximal contact surfaces and anatomically correct contours—so important for optimum form and function of the dentition as well as for stimulation and protection of the periodontal complex. - Owens B, Phebus J.
