Consultants’ Comments

  • “I like the tight, reliable contacts the matrix system helped me achieve.”
  • “Excellent adaptation of the ring to the tooth and the preparation, and the grip of the forceps on to the ring.”
  • “Great for treating adjacent teeth in succession.”
  • “It is nice to have rings that are specifically designed for wider or deeper preps.”
  • “Many ring sizes to choose from.”
  • “Make the bands less rigid.”
  • “Redesign the wedges.”


Strata-G™ is a sectional matrix system which includes rings, bands and wedges as well as an instrument for ring placement.




Unique Attributes

  • Drawn-wire nickel titanium rings plus PEEK reinforcement in the tips produces consistent separating pressure longer, retaining shape over time.
  • Marginal ridge enhancements built into the matrix bands and rings help provide finishing flair.
  • New pedodontic size.
  • Newly designed wedges that sit deeper in the preparation and have more flexible sidewalls.
  • The Strata-G™ rings, bands and wedges combine for a 270° Seal™ for ultimate flash control. The rings won’t spring off the tooth, and the Wide Preparation ring makes tough wide preparations no problem.

Clinical Tips

  • The contour on the matrix can sometimes make it difficult to seat fully if there is crowding; switching to a smaller size will help.
  • In conservative preparations, place the wedge first to separate the contacts so it is easier to insert the metal matrix band and not damage it. Once the metal matrix band is inserted, you can readjust the position of the wedge so that it presses against the band and adapts it to the tooth.
  • Do not burnish above the height of contour for the contacts. This will overextend the marginal ridge. Burnishing lower and letting the band contours come off the proximal ridge leads to much less need for adjustment and better contours.


  • Creation of tight contacts on Class II composite restorations.
