Product Description




Carbide/Diamond Tipped Sectional Matrix Band Forceps

We all know the most efficient way to get a job done is to use the proper instruments that have been specifically designed for the job at hand.

Too often, we hear of dentists trying to place sectional matrix bands with cotton pliers. Cotton pliers are great for some procedures, but they are not properly angled for placing sectional matrix bands from the occlusal aspect. The inevitable result is frustration and a waste of valuable time as you awkwardly try to position the band from the wrong angle. 

Take Control
The precision-engineered UNI-BAND AdvantEdge-L forceps from CLINICIAN’S CHOICE®, give you the secure control you need to easily place, manipulate, and remove sectional matrix bands during Class II restorations – all with one simple instrument! Featuring a finger-controlled locking mechanism, the AdvantEdge-L makes picking up, placing, and release of the matrix band simple and efficient. Simply place the matrix band in the jaws of the forcep and slide the locking mechanism into place for controlled placement of the band. Further adding to the strength, AdvantEdge-L forceps feature a convex handle design – preventing distortion and frequent reconditioning/reshaping. The AdvantEdge-L’s wide jaw provides more of a gripping surface – improving ease of placement and adding to the gripping force needed for removal of the band in tight contact situations.
To Place
 During placement, just use the jaw tips to grab the matrix band in the center. This will give you the precision when placing the matrix band from the occlusal aspect (fig 1).
To Remove
The UNI-BAND AdvantEdge-L features a serrated carbide upper jaw and a diamond dusted lower jaw that, when fully closed, delivers an incredible gripping power of up to 40 p.s.i. (fig 2). Position your fingers at the front of the “spring” steel handle to fully close the jaws. Using the full length of the jaw, place the forceps at the buccal or lingual aspect to engage the band, and rotate a 1/4 turn, pulling forward and slightly upward (fig 3). Note: it is critical you turn the forceps a 1/4 turn once you have gripped the matrix band.
