Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know which AdaptiVe Wedge is the right size for the interproximal space?It is important to remember that these wedges are only for matrix adaptation, not tooth separation. There are four sizes of AdaptiVe Wedge. Each wedge has small notches along the sides that essentially divide it into three segments. When the right-sized wedge is used, those segments will contract and expand independently, producing greater matrix adaptation than you will get with other wedges. Deformation can only occur if the wedge is too large for the embrasure. For optimum adaptation of the matrix, choose the largest wedge size that will fit the interproximal space. If the wedge deforms, choose a smaller size. Size selection is critical to make the most of its adaptation capabilities, but becomes simple and routine after a very short time.
Is there anything I can do to speed up or streamline my workflow when using the V3 Matrix System™?A really good thing to do is for your assistant to pre-load matrices and wedges in Triodent® Pin-Tweezers. The tweezers hold consumables securely in their passive position, so they can be ready for use, already loaded, on the operatory table. The same can be done with the Triodent® V3 Ring in Triodent® Forceps with the locking bar engaged, but do not leave the ring extended for too long.
