3D rings are the real topic of Garrison’s systems. The “v” shape of a ring that fits in the interproximal area allows a good fit between the cavity margins and the matrix in the buccal and palatal walls. This results in easier positioning of the composite masses close to the cavity margins, and final remodeling (usually necessary at the time of removal of the matrix) will be very minimal.

Dentists struggle on a daily basis with Class II restorations, especially on short or malpositioned teeth. There is the struggle of needing a tight gingival seal to minimize overhangs, the need for post-restorative finishing, and the struggle of attaining perfect anatomical contours. I had the opportunity to work with the Garrison Composi-Tight® 3D XR system over the last few months. Here are my observations.

Caries in the distal of the first premolar and the disto-occlusal pit of the second premolar. The decision was made to restore the teeth
with a micro-hybrid posterior composite.

Due to the location of the decay and poor interproximal hygiene, the cavity was filled using a glass ionomer cement.
