Composi-Tight 3D XR™

Ideal for Class II Restorative Procedures


The newly introduced Composi-Tight 3D XR™ Sectional Matrix System from Garrison Dental Solutions provides the benefits of the original 3D system with advancements for optimal and increased contact. Ideal for Class II restorative procedures, Composi-Tight 3D XR™ improves retention between the canine and first bicuspid. It reduces flash and, therefore, the finishing time required for direct composite restorations, and simultaneously ensures true matrix band adaptation. A recent evaluation was conducted by Contemporary Product Solutions, involving nine clinicians from different practices around the United States. Their opinions were solicited after using the Composi-Tight 3D XR™ system. The clinicians performed an average of 18.5 restorative procedures using the system before completing the evaluation survey. After using the system, 77% of clinicians reported that they would either replace their current system with Composi-Tight 3D XR™ or add it to the current system in their practice.


Composi-Tight 3D XR™ from Garrison Dental Solutions demonstrates its specificity and aptitude for Class II composite restorations. As the clinicians surveyed concluded, it provides increased contact and a tighter fit than other matrix systems. The naturally contoured band and operator-friendly retaining system ensure the ease of placement, and the reduction of flash makes it ideal for these restorations. Based on the evaluations performed by Contemporary Product Solutions, Composi-Tight 3D XR™ represents an important addition to the armamentarium for both patient satisfaction and restorative success. It proves easy to use and place by creating the required tooth separation and band adaptation for tight and natural contacts. With the increase in demands from patients for restorations that satisfy esthetic, functional, and health concerns, clinicians now have a viable option for use when creating tight contact composite restorations. One of the clinicians surveyed summarized it best by stating, “With the Composi-Tight 3D XR™ system, Garrison has set the gold standard for Class II restorations.”
