case report

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.

conclusions

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.
