Clinical Tips: ProxyPal

ProxyPal is a transparent 3D contoured matrix for the front area. The pre-shaped progressive curvature aids to create incisal fillings with a correct anatomical shape and is especially designed for large proximal fillings and closure of frontal diastemas, preventing “black triangle disease”. In order to achieve a perfect filling the matrix has been designed such that the curvature of the matrix escalates linearly along its total length.

Clinical Tips: FenderWedge

Bur damage to adjacent teeth is a common problem in everyday dental practice. Research shows that 70% of adjacent teeth suffer damage during class II preparations.* FenderWedge prevents damage to the adjacent tooth and gingiva that commonly occurs during Class II preparations. FenderWedge is a combination of a steel plate and a plastic wedge. It facilitates easy application of a matrix. To avoid aspiration it is recommended to secure FenderWedge with a waxed dental floss.
