Dentatus Matrix System is Dr. Nyström’s original design.
Models MEC-N1 and N2 were the first angulated Retainers. They are mirror images of each other and can be applied lingually or buccally to provide firm adaptation of the matrix band to the tooth. When placed lingually, they permit a better field of vision. When placed buccally, the angulation prevents twisting of the retainer and thus its displacement by the tongue or cheek. The stability gained adds to the rigidity of the Nyström Matrix System.
The Nyström Retainers are also available in a universal straight aperture (MEC). This design is simple and easy to handle.
Both styles feature adjustment screws that are tightened after the matrix band is adapted providing secure retention and ease of use.
Dentatus’ Matrix Bands are manufactured from the highest quality stainless steel and are available in two thicknesses: 0.04 and 0.05 mm. The 0.05 mm have a special dead soft quality. Stainless steel gives the bands high strength and adjustability. All Dentatus Matrix Bands have perfectly smooth edges.
Dentatus Matrix bands are especially useful in recreating gingival margins of class V restorations, where the cavity is considerably below the gum line and rubber dams are difficult or impossible to apply. The special series Class V matrix bands are designed to deflect the gingiva and allow access to the cavity. This permits careful inspection of the gingival margin. This matrix also provides for a dry field of operation and helps rebuild the natural contour.
Nyström Matrix Retainers used with Dentatus Matrix Bands provide dentists the assurance they need for everyday reliability.
