Stretch Wedge instructions for use
The innovative Stretch Wedge is part of the One Visit Crown (OVC3) System. Try the Stretch Wedge out on your next MOD case and experience how the revolutionary design separates teeth for consistently tight contacts.
Benefits of the Stretch Wedge include:
✓ More separating force than separating rings*
✓ Adjustable separation force
✓ Protects the papillae
✓ Prevents crevicular fluid seepage
*In-house tests have shown the Stretch Wedge provides over 40% more separating force than leading separating rings.
Please follow the instructions below when using the Stretch Wedge on your next MOD case.
Step 01: Stretch
Slowly pull the Stretch WedgeTM a few times prior to use. This strengthens the wedge and allows for increased interproximal separation.
Step 02: Floss gently
Stretch and floss interproximally just like dental floss and pull gently. Pulling tight at this stage may dent the matrix band.
Step 03: Build up proximal box with flowable
Build up the proximal box below the contact point and cure.
Step 04: Pull hard on wedge and burnish
Firmly pull one end of the Stretch WedgeTM to create separation and re-burnish the contact point.
