BioClear Evolve Matrices - Anatomically Pre-shaped Posterior matrices are in three widths
Evolve matrices are an evolution in posterior matrices - an improvement on what was already the most advanced and user-friendly mylar matrix in modern posterior restorations, the BioClear Biofit HD, the Evolve Matrices have the same benefits and additional features for posterior cases.
The new features of the BioClear Evolve Matrix Series include:
Three emergence profile shapes that are color-coded on the
Matrix heights printed on the matrix for quick identification
Extra-flared quick-release tabs on the buccal and lingual surfaces that are easier to find and use
Wide array of sizes (heights) available (the blue comes in 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9mm’s, the orange comes in 6, 7, and 9mm’s, and the pink comes in 6, 7, and 9mm’s)
The Blue Evolve Matrix is color-coded to be easily seen, features an aggressively rounded emergence profile, and comes in five heights to provide an ideal fit.
The occlusal curvature of the matrix creates a rounded marginal ridge with ease. The size and shape is appropriate for most posterior molar cases.
The Blue Evolve's shape is the most curvaceous of all of our posterior matrices and requires a unique insertion method.
To place the matrix, rotate it into place from top to bottom. Doing this expands the base of the matrix so it snaps over the tooth and into place.
This matrix features a flatter emergence profile curvature than the Blue Evolve but is not as flat as the Pink Evolve matrix. The Orange Evolve Matrix is color-coded to be easily seen, features a flatter emergence profile curvature, and comes in three heights to provide an ideal fit.
Orange Evolve was created for instances where the Blue Evolve Matrix or Biofit HD Matrix would invert.
This commonly occurs between maxillary 1st and 2nd molars.
•Teeth with root proximity
The root proximity often causes a normal sectional matrix to invert occluso-gingivally and buccal-lingualy.
Orange Evolve’s shape is a middle ground between the blue, which is very curvaceous, and pink, which is our flattest posterior matrix.
Commonly used between maxillary 1st and 2nd molars in cases of broad teeth, tight root proximity, or very flat teeth. Often referred to as the Broad Flat Molar Matrix. The Pink Evolve Matrix is color-coded to be easily seen, features a broad emergence profile curvature, and comes in three heights to provide an ideal fit.
Pink Evolve was created for instances where the Blue Evolve Matrix, Biofit HD Matrix, or Orange Evolve Matrix would invert. This commonly occurs between maxillary 1st and 2nd molars.
•Very Broad teeth
•Teeth with extreme root proximity
•Very flat teeth
The interproximal of the 1st and 2nd maxillary molars is often much wider buccal-lingually than any other embrasure areas. This can cause a traditional sectional matrix to invert buccal-lingually. The root proximity often causes a normal sectional matrix to invert occluso-gingivally and buccal-lingualy.
Pink Evolve’s shape is our flattest posterior matrix.
The Bioclear Evolve Matrix Height Indicator
The Bioclear Evolve Matrix Height Indicator is used for posterior restorations and has two uses:
Matrix Height Indicator: Numbers are printed on the indicator so the correct Evolve matrix for a restoration is chosen the first time. This helps reduce waste when incorrect matrices are chosen.
Go/No-Go Indicator: The colored tip indicates if a cavity prep can be cured in one layer or if more must be used.
