Composi-Tight® 3D Fusion™ Ultra-Adaptive Wedges incorporate Garrison’s exclusive Soft-Face™ technology to adapt in ways that hard plastic, or even hollow plastic wedges just can’t do. Seal up those root concavities and tooth irregularities so your preps are kept clean and dry. Composi-Tight 3D Fusion Wedges fuse two materials together to produce the perfect combination of adaptability and retention. Other features and benefits include:
- Soft-Face technology allows wedges to gently mold to root irregularities upon insertion providing an unsurpassed seal
- Firm inner skeleton that ensures proper separation Soft, flexible fins easily fold down to glide in during insertion, then spring back out to secure the wedge
- Upturned, ski-like tip, gentle radius edges, and a Soft-Face outer layer reduces trauma in ways that sharp edged, “hollow” plastic wedges can’t
Indications for Use
Class II, class III and class IV procedures.
Technique for Class II restorations utilizing Composi-Tight 3D Fusion Soft Face Rings
Place rubber dam. Isolation of the area helps to prevent contamination from blood and saliva. As with many dental procedures, aspiration of small parts is a valid concern.
Place FenderWedge prior to preparation to pre-separate and protect the adjacent tooth. Prepare tooth with conservative Class II preparation. Once the preparation is complete, remove the FenderWedge and place your matrix.
Place Composi-Tight 3D Fusion sectional matrix band. Select a matrix band that most closely approximates the occlusogingival height of the tooth. The Grab-Tab should be oriented toward the occlusal margin and may be bent over the adjacent tooth after placement
Insert Composi-Tight 3D Fusion wedge. Keep a finger on the matrix band to prevent the wedge from dislodging the band during insertion. Wedge firmly, a high viscosity resin packed into the preparation may displace the band away from the tooth.
Apply the Composi-Tight 3D Fusion Soft Face ring retainer. Select a retainer ring that is appropriate for the embrasure and tooth being restored. Spread it with the *Composi-Tight 3D Fusion Ring Placement forceps and place it over the wedge.
Very Important: push the matrix band firmly into contact with the adjacent tooth in the desired contact area.
Use your preferred etching, disinfecting and bonding technique following manufacturer’s instructions. Apply your preferred composite resin following manufacturer’s instructions.
Remove the ring, wedge and band.
Contour and polish the restoration.
