The TDV Matrix Kit is indicated for clinical procedures in dentistry, odontopedriatrics, orthodontics, prosthesis, and integrated odontological clinics.
UNIMATRIX: The use of Unimatrix dispenses the use of the conventional matrix holder since the Unimatrix fixing clamp will stabilize the matrix and hold it in the correct position. The silicone protectors, in the extremity of the rings, provides a better adaptation of the matrices. The clamp must be positioned using the Unimatrix pliers or the clamp holding pincers used for an absolute insulation. The sectional matrix must be positioned into the interproximal space with its clipped extremity turned towards the gingival region and adapting it a little below the gingival groove. When the restoration is finished, at first remove the clamp, then the wedge, and finally the matrix. Composition: Matrices: Stainless steel. Ring: Nickel plated carbon steel. Tubes: Silicone.
MATRICES: The matrix adaptation with a fixing ring is achieved by compressing the ring. The matrix is introduced with the clipped part turned toward the cervical. The now flattened ring extremity can be bent aside. If necessary, the matrix shape may be retouched with the aid of a burnisher or an exploratory probe. After finishing the work, the fixing system extremity is cut off in order to extract the matrix without damaging the restoration. Composition: Fixing system: Aluminum. Matrix: Polyethylene terephthalate or stainless Steel.
ELASTIC WEDGES: TDV Elastic Wedges are indicated for general use in restorative procedures, with the mechanical function of adapting matrices and/or separating adjacent teeth. Select the appropriate elastic wedge for the procedure. 1-Fit the wedge to the clamp-holder forceps by its 2 larger holes; 2-Stretch the wedge until its central part reaches a sufficient thickness to allow its sliding between the teeth; 3-Place the elastic wedge into the interdental gap and disjoint the forceps; 4-After concluding the procedure, pull the wedge by one of its extremities and cut it by its central part; Remove the remaining parts from the patient's mouth. Composition: Rubber and atoxic colorants.
Warnings, precautions and restrictions
Professional use only. When there is proven allergy to any of their components, the products must not be used. To avoid an accidental swallowing of this products it’s necessary the application of a total isolation technique of the operatory field. Matrices and Wedges should be disposed of after every patient in order to assure a better clinical performance and considering biosafety standards. Its reuse can cause cross contamination. The Unimatrix ring and silicone tubes must be sterilized separately. The rings and silicone tubes are sterilizable by autoclave (126º, 147kPa, 16min). Before sterilization proceed with the cleaning using water and enzymatic detergent.
