Sectional Matrix System

MATRIX SYSTEM The Triodent V3 Rings are constructed from Nickel Titanium with glass fibre reinforced plastic tines
for optimal separation force on the teeth to produce consistently tight contacts. They are designed
for a wide range of cases where teeth are aligned or little tooth structure remains and available in

The side view shows how the V-shaped tines on the Triodent™ V3 Ring accommodate the wedge, allowing the tines to seat
firmly to maximise stability. The angle and subtly curved shape of the tines also ensures excellent adaptation of the matrix
against the tooth, especially on vertical margins, preventing flash.

The Triodent V3 Ring can be used on a very wide box, even with a cusp missing, as long as there is still enough tooth
structure at or even below the gingival margin to support the tips of the tines. STARTER PACKS MATRIX BANDS
