Strata-G™ forms a 270° Seal for ultimate flash control. Flexibility for a better cervical seal! Strata-G Wedges utilize Soft-Face™ materials and advanced design to promote a better fit. Stack them up. The smooth tunnel design easily accommodates stacking of wedges. This feature is extremely helpful in cases of gingival recession or when simultaneous wedging from the buccal and lingual is desired. No back-out. Soft retentive fins smoothly fold down during wedge insertion and spring back when clear of the interproximal space, locking Strata-G Wedges in place. Gentle on the papilla. Smooth tunnel design and rounded edges glide over the papilla with less trauma.
A better seal by design. The inverted V shape sits lower and seals deeper interproximally while flexible side walls and Soft-Face TPE over-mold allow Strata-G Wedges to easily adapt to concavities and irregularities.
Indications for Use
Class II restorations.
Technique for Class II restorations utilizing Strata-G Softface Rings.
Place Rubber Damn. 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.
Prepare tooth with conservative Class II preparation.
Place Strata-G sectional matrix band. Select 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. (Figure 1)
Insert Strata-G 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. (Figure 2)
Apply the Strata-G Soft Face ring retainer. 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. (Figure 3)
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.
