DualForce™ Active-Wedges

DualForceActive-Wedges actively engage the matrix band and adjacent tooth. Active-Wedges are designed to easily glide into position with a collapsing tip that re-opens once fully placed. The ideal Active-Wedge contour and strong internal spine places significant force on the matrix band to seal margins to eliminate overhangs and reduce composite flash – translating to less finishing time.

FAQ

How do I prevent the DualForce ring from popping off the tooth?2019-04-08T15:22:49-04:00

Ensure that the DualForce Ring is fully seated by gently pressing down on the plastic separating prongs (never directly on the dual NiTi rings) once it is placed on the tooth.

How do I prevent the plastic on the rings from breaking?2019-04-08T15:23:49-04:00

Ensure that the proper sterilization temperature and method are being used.
It is recommended to use a steam autoclave at 273
oF only.

Ensure that the ring is expanded sufficiently to avoid premature contact of the separating prongs with the tooth as it is being seated.

Are there any tips for placement?2019-04-08T15:24:12-04:00
  1. Approach the tooth with the expanded ring at a 45o angle. 
  2. Place the separating prongs as close as possible to the gingival crest and gently press down on the plastic to ensure that it is fully seated. The dual NiTi rings themselves should never be manipulated as this will cause the separating prongs to shift.
  3. DualForce Rings are designed to sit at a 20o angle to allow for nesting of a second ring, to avoid a rubber dam clamp, and to clear an adjacent prominent cusp.
