The Bioclear Diamond Wedge is designed to solve many of the difficulties in using traditional, rigid wedges. The Diamond Wedge requires less effort to place than traditional wedges due to the diamond shaped cut-out in the tip, which collapses during insertion. The wedge then springs open once through the embrasure, creating a tight seal and preventing the wedge from backing out. While still maintaining strong tooth separation, the flexibility of the Diamond Wedge creates an excellent marginal adaptation which eliminates the uncontrolled flow of excess composite and minimizes clean-up after the composite has been cured.
The Diamond Wedge is offered in both original and long. The Original Diamond Wedge is intended for most cases. The Long Diamond Wedge is approximately 2mm longer than the original wedge and is intended to be used when working on wider molars.
