Indications for Use
Ultradent Halo Step-by-Step Guide
Select an appropriate matrix band based on required occlusogingival height. Using tweezers, grip the matrix band tab and bend as needed, then place interproximally with the concave surface facing the tooth to be restored.
Select wedge that best adapts matrix band to the gingival portion of the preparation. Grip wedge with cotton pliers.
Light finger pressure may need to be applied to the matrix band to prevent it from being dislodged during wedge placement.
If needed, an additional wedge may be used to provide greater adaptation to gingival cavosurface.
Carefully place Halo ring using the ring forceps.
The ring should be placed as low as possible with the tine ends of the ring straddling the wedge on each side of the tooth.
Inspect matrix band, wedge, and ring placement to ensure that the matrix band is well adapted to the cavosurface margins and that it is in intimate contact with the adjacent tooth.
