The CPS Evaluation Team, consisting of dentists, assistants, hygienists, patient coordinators and the dental laboratory, evaluated the ReelMatrix™ by Garrison Dental Solutions. CPS produced the following comments and reviews following its evaluation.

Dentist comments

  • “Improved the overall contour of large MO or DO restorations and allowed better control of MOD restorations.”

  • “The ease of placement…I had a lot more freedom in moving the matrix around the tooth in case I had a large buccal area that needed to be restored…plus the cinching device was super easy and foolproof.”

  • “The cure-through bands didn’t have the strength to go through tight contacts on the unprepped side of the tooth, same with the dead-soft . I kept scrunching them trying to get them to seat.”

Assistant comments

  • “I felt it was very easy to handle without any assistance. I liked the easy grip handle and also with a little click it let go and I could continue on with the restoration.”

  • “Easy placement, variety, loved the different sizes of wedges.”

  • “Cure-though matrix and the delivery system (handle).”
