About the Award-Winning Products

Pro-Matrix Curve, pre-contoured matrix bands that are engineered with a sophisticated, clean design to meet the evolving needs of dentistry. Pro-Matrix disposable bands facilitate procedures through easier placement and better visibility. The advanced contoured design of Pro-Matrix matrix bands ensures perfect contact every time for easier, faster restorations and better results.

SafeGauze Hemostat is a 100% natural dissolvable hemostatic dressing designed to control bleeding after extractions, periodontal surgery and other procedures that require bleeding control, with no suturing required.

HemoStat contains no chemical additives or animal-based products and has natural antibacterial properties that promote healing.

Polyisoprene Dental Dams by Hedy isolate specific areas of the mouth during dental procedures to reduce the risk of infection. Their unique formulation has a similar polymer structure and physical properties to natural rubber, without the potential allergen of latex protein.
