Wedges

It's difficult to get too excited about wedges, but they are a still an important item in restorative dentistry. Picking up a wedge with cotton pliers and placing it into the gingival embrasure under considerable pressure to push a matrix tightly against the tooth and, at the same time, providing some separation between the teeth to help create a tight contact is a time-honored procedure.

However, wedges can now be placed more passively since sectional matrices do not require wedges to provide the separating force between teeth (their retaining rings serve that function) and the restorative materials placed on the gingival wall no longer have to be condensed (as per amalgam), relieving the wedge of the responsibility of preventing overhangs caused by the considerable condensing force when amalgam is placed. Passive wedge placement will still hold the matrix tight enough against the tooth to prevent a flowable composite, for example, from flowing down the root and will cause less damage to the papilla.
