Garrison Dental Introduces Strata-G Sectional Matrix System


New system is described as faster and more predictable yet is designed to be easier to open.

Garrison Dental Introduces Strata-G Sectional Matrix System

Garrison Dental Solutions’ new Strata-G™ sectional matrix system is designed to form a 270° Seal™ for ultimate flash control. It is said to provide strong tooth separation yet is easier to open.

Nitinol drawn-wire nickel titanium is aligned at the molecular level for superior performance yet requires less effort to open, according to the company. Garrison's proprietary StrataSet™ treatment maximizes longevity of this advanced material.

Designed for more uses, the PEEK ultra-durable reinforcement on the back of the ring allows Strata-G™ to retain a higher percentage of initial strength for much longer than non-reinforced rings. Proprietary StrataBond™ silicone/PEEK tips withstand hundreds of applications.

Other features include:

  • Improved anatomy and unbeatable grip. Enhanced marginal ridge guides and supports matrix bands. StrataBond™ silicone for unsurpassed flash control. Ultra-Grip™ retention extensions provide tenacious grip and are gentler to the papilla.
  • Wider indications and wider smiles. Dentistry's premier Wide Preparation separator ring (green) makes Strata-G versatile and user-friendly. Clinicians can tackle the most challenging posterior restorations with confidence knowing that they will achieve optimal contact and contour.
  • You can stack them up. The smooth tunnel design easily accommodates stacking of wedges. This feature is helpful in cases of gingival recession or when simultaneous wedging from the buccal and lingual is desired, states Garrison.
  • No back-out. Soft retentive fins smoothly fold down during wedge insertion and spring back when clear of the interproximal space, locking Strata-G Wedges in place.
  • A better seal by design. The inverted V shape sits lower and seals deeper interproximally while side walls and Soft-Face™ TPE over-mold allow Strata-G Wedges to easily adapt to concavities and irregularities.
  • Optimized marginal ridge. Strata-G Bands provide shape and guidance for developing the marginal ridge of Class II restorations without blocking your access. These marginal ridge enhancements are built into the matrix bands and rings to help provide that finishing flair.
  • ProfileBooster™ subgingival apron. Achieving a natural emergence profile in challenging cervical areas is said to be easy with Strata-G Bands—it's built right in.

Additionally, the system’s Firm Bands are well suited for challenging cases. A critical addition in the Strata-G kit, Firm Bands are specially tempered stainless steel and only 0.0015" thin. Their stiffer nature makes them ideal for unbroken contacts and extra deep or extra wide preparations.
