Natural contours and optimal contacts with a simple twist of the fingers.
Palodent 360 Matrix bands are designed to be placed in a multitude of positions to accommodate field of view, loss of tooth structure, and accessibility for instruments.
Palodent 360 circumferential matrix bands can be for all Class II restorations, but especially useful for difficult Class II Cases when there is no adjacent tooth, too much tooth structure is missing to use a sectional matrix, or if there is a mis-aligned or severely rotated tooth.
The Tofflemire™ was introduced in 1946 to aid in placement of dental amalgam. Today, it’s obsolete technology that can lead to clinical failure when used with modern composite resins.3 Palodent matrix systems use modern matrix technology to offer advanced sectional and circumferential systems to deliver consistent, accurate restorations.
Palodent 360 excels where Automatrix falls short. Common pitfalls associated with Automatrix:
Palodent 360’s easy to place pre-contoured bands and integrated tightening mechanism give clinicians unobstructed views, efficient workflows and natural contours for improved patient health and satisfaction.
1. User evaluation United States, 2019. 237 restorations were placed by 52 dentists who indicated their preferred method of restoring Class II cavities was circumferential matrix systems. 90% said the Palodent 360 meets or exceeds their ability to easily recreate accurate tooth contour and create anatomically accurate contact with the adjacent tooth
