A 35-years-old female patient, smoker, without general pathology presented a secondary carious lesion under a previous composite restoration on molar 36.
The following case shows the direct composite restoration of the lesion using the Polydentia myClip 2.0 sectional matrix ring, LumiContrast sectional matrices and wooden wedges.

Photo 4: Situation after removing myClip 2.0, matrix and wedge. The adaption of the ring tines allows minimum interproximal finishing at the end of the restoration.

Photo 6: Post-op view of the restoration after finishing and polishing. An accurate proximal morphology is created between premolar 35 and molar 36.
The myClip 2.0 is a very useful tool for posterior class II restoration. It’s easy to handle, the tines have a geometry and rigidity which allow to form the matrix very effectively on the palatine and buccal walls. This saves time for the finishing steps and ensures a good proximal morphology.

Class II (interproximal) decay involves the proximal surface of a posterior tooth and it is a common occurrence in many dental patients. One challenge for the clinician is to accurately recreate a physical contact to the adjacent tooth and, at the same time, to restore proper interproximal anatomic form. This case involves a teenager 16 years old with an interproximal lesion in his left lower molar (#36)....
