BANDBENDER™ ADVANTAGES

  1. Restorations of proper contour and gingival adaptation are reliably produced even if virtually no coronal structure remains.
  2. Composite restorations are no longer limited to preparations with conservatively extended proximal boxes.  Big can now be beautiful.
  3. Marginal fracture is pre-empted and food impaction is avoided. Proper contour is achieved and there is sufficient bulk in the right places in the proximal restoration.
  4. Remember embrasures? You will place occlusal embrasures that floss readily, buccal embrasures that look right, and lingual embrasures that exclude food retention, unlike sectionals
  5. Eliminate clinical frustration–  time-consuming or clumsy approaches incurring bleeding and failed isolation due to multiple matrixes is eliminated.
  6. Cost -effective–  repairing failed contacts disappears from daily practice.
  7. Rotated teeth and wide/broad contacts can be treated without difficulty
  8. Custom sectionals can be created inexpensively and quickly and used with any ring system on the market.
  9. Root furcations can be readily treated without overhang by contouring the gingival band in reverse
  10. Better temporaries for non-retentive inlays
  11. Anterior teeth with sub-tissue lesions can be banded and bring a contact to proper contour.

These features are not found anywhere else in the matrix market.

TESTIMONIAL

Dr. David Mazgaj, DMD, General Practitioner, Buffalo, NY., April 2015
“I have used the Bandbender™ for several years. It is not an invention that ends up in the bottom drawer.””I keep mine close at hand in my clinic and it is the go-to for large or difficult cases, and pulls success out of the hat each and every time.  Thanks to Dr. Walford on behalf of my patients, for helping to bring my quality of work and peace of mind up a big notch.”
