For dentists placing Class II restorations, Palodent V3 is a sectional matrix system that delivers easy, predictable and accurate contact creation by utilising advanced ring, matrix and wedge technology. Palodent V3 offers you accurate contacts and a tight marginal seal, minimised overhang and finishing, easy placement and removal. The Palodent sectional matrix system is comprised of six precisely designed components: rings, matrices, wedges, wedge guards, forceps, and pin tweezers. These have been designed and refined for optimal performance individually and as a system. As a result, Palodent is among the simplest and most accurate matrix systems on the market.
The Palodent® V3 Sectional Matrix System employs a nickel-titanium retaining ring, interproximal wedge, WedgeGuard and sectional matrices for placement of restorations in the posterior region. Sectional matrices are suitable for use with all posterior restorative materials. The retaining rings are available in narrow, for most premolar and small molars or universal, for larger molars. Rings may be used either singly or in tandem, for the simultaneous restoration of multiple surfaces. The advantages of the sectional matrices and rings include natural contours for better control of contact areas and embrasures, ease of placement, better visualization of the operative field, and more comfort for the practitioner and patient. Eliminating the leverage of a conventional matrix retainer allows the practitioner to use less tension, avoiding excessive compression of the tooth and easier formation of anatomical proximal contact areas. When placed prior to preparation, the innovative WedgeGuard combination wedge and shield protects approximating surfaces from inadvertent damage during preparation. Using the pin tweezers, the shield easily slides away, leaving the wedge securely in place.
