There is two versions of QuickConnect Anatomy Bands – Regular and Tabbed. The QuickConnect Anatomy Band Regular version has no tabs on the top edge of the band.
The Tabbed QuickConnect Anatomy Band is an enhanced version of the QuickConnect Anatomy Band that comes with additional tabs called “Tight-Contact-Tabs.” These tabs are designed to provide an added level of control and precision during the filling process, by temporarily securing the matrix band to adjacent teeth using a bonding agent and flowable resin or pulling them while curing the composite to ensure the matrix is in contact with adjacent teeth. However, it is important to note that these tabs are optional, and the matrix band can also be used without using the tabs. They are particularly useful when trying to close a large gap or to create a wide contact.
To learn how to utilize these tabs, see the Sure Band training videos as these use the same technique.
