Dental Matrix Band Wedges

Definition : Dental devices designed to slightly separate teeth, securing dental matrix bands in place during insertion of dental restorative materials. These wedges are typically made of absorbable materials (e.g., linden wood) that use moisture to expand, facilitating a tight contact between the matrix band and the tooth surface; they are placed in the interproximal area of teeth. Matrix band wedges are frequently supplied with matrix bands.
