Palodent V3 Sectional Matrix System

Better outcomes start here.

Producing high quality Class II Restorations - Palodent V3

The Palodent V3 system is an innovative sectional matrix system with Nickel-Titanium rings, anatomically shaped matrix bands and adaptive self-guiding wedges that provides predictable, tight contacts and restorations that accurately replicate the natural tooth anatomy.

The Palodent V3 matrix system delivers improved outcomes, even when faced with wide cavities and missing cusps. The contoured design of the matrices and wedges ensure there is minimal finishing of the restoration. Used by tens of thousands of clinicians in dental offices and schools globally, better dentistry starts with Palodent V3.

70% of clinicians find contact creation to be the most challenging part of a Class II restoration. ¹

¹ DentalTown (2012). Restorative Dentistry. Monthly Poll: What is the most challenging part of Class II Restoration?

Love it, love it. I can’t believe I practiced for the last 13 years without it. I am embarrassed that my Class II fillings would look like straight walls without the contours!

Better outcomes with a Sectional Matrix System

Circumferential Band (Tofflemire)

  • Fails to restore proximal anatomy
  • Thin contact at the marginal ridge
  • Increased likelihood of fracture, occlusal interference, recurrent caries and periodontal disease
  • Large food trap below
  • Increased chance of light or open contact
  • Extensive finishing may be required

Sectional Matrix System Restoration

  • Easy to use system
  • Natural contours
  • Tight, anatomically correct contact point
  • Minimal interproximal finishing

Sectional System vs Circumferential

The Tofflemire circumferential matrix band was developed in the 1940s to aid placement of dental amalgam. It was not designed with today’s modern restorative materials in mind, which can result in less than optimal outcomes when placing composites.

In contrast, sectional matrix systems were developed specifically for placing composite materials.

Take the stress out of Class II restorations

  1. Strong Ni-Ti Rings for outstanding spring strength and memory
  2. Glass-fiber reinforced plastic tines are V-shaped to accommodate the wedge
  3. Pin tweezer hole for easy placement & removal of wedge
  4. Top tab for easy insertion and side tab for removal of matrix
  5. Gingival apron to prevent gaps in gingival-axial corner
  6. Greater curvature: matrix wraps around tooth
  7. Pronounced marginal ridge for natural-looking anatomy

4 steps to better Class II's

1st Step

Using the Pin-Tweezers, place a Palodent V3 Wedge or WedgeGuard firmly from the lingual or buccal side and proceed with prep.

2nd Step

After prep, if using Palodent WedgeGuard, support Wedge with mirror or dental instrument while using Pin Tweezers to detach the shield.

3rd Step

Place Palodent V3 Matrix with Pin Tweezers.

4th Step

Place the Palodent V3 Ring on top of the wedge to provide separation.
