Medicom® SafeMatrix™ Contour Single-Use Contoured Matrix Bands are pre-assembled single-use matrix bands that are suitable for all MO/OD and MOD cavities, as well as for cusp build-ups and as a protective shield for the neighbouring tooth during preparation. They may be used with all restorative materials and with wedges and rubber dams. Narrow neck and rounded edges provide easy access and optimal visibility during treatment. Eliminates the risk of injuries to gingiva and cheeks often caused by sharp edges or corroded surfaces on metal holders.

Other features and benefits include:

  • contoured for faster placement, tighter contact and better results
  • push-button diverter - creates band angulation to ensure tight interproximal contact
  • slim handle
  • textured grip
  • improved thumbscrew grooves for added convenience and control

SafeMatrix matrix bands create a smooth external surface against which restoration material can be packed and:

  • Accelerate the restoration process
  • Save valuable chair time
  • Increase patient comfort and safety
  • Improve results

Available in two sizes:

  • 6 mm for molars and larger restorations
  • 4.5 mm for pre-molars and children’s teeth

Each matrix band is individually packaged. As a single-use product, it does not require reprocessing. Similar to SafeMatrix™ SIngle-Use Matrix Bands, no assembly required. The SafeMatrix Contour has the additional benefit of being pre-contoured to tooth shape and having a longer band for larger teeth.

Indications for Use:

Single-use, disposable matrix band for use in amalgam or composite restorations in dentistry. Can be used in all quadrants of the patients mouth.

How to Use Medicom SafeMatrix Contour Single-Use Contoured Matrix Bands


  1. Preparing SafeMatrix Contour: Before use, adjust the push-button deflector to suit the mouth quadrant in which the SafeMatrix Contour is being used.

  2. Positioning SafeMatrix Contour: The push button diverter should be positioned closest to the gum line to ensure the correct fit around the tooth.

  3. Tightening SafeMatrix Contour: Fit the band around the tooth and tighten by turning the deep-groove thumbscrew clockwise. Apply wedges and shape the band using a suitable burnishing tool if required.

  4. Restore tooth: Perform restoration using normal clinical procedure.

  5. Removal: To remove the band, first loosen it by turning the handle 2-3 turns anticlockwise.
