  • Causa
    The cheek retractor for matrixmandible u-shaped may not function as intended due to the potential for corrosion and/or failure of the internal spring which has been manufactured from an incorrect material. as an internal part of the instrument, the spring is not in direct contact with the patient. however, in the event that the spring or a subcomponent of the spring was to fail and/or corrode, the possibility exists that the particles may transfer from the instrument to the patient, potentially leading to an adverse tissue reaction and/or infection. a surgical delay may also arise if the retractor does not work during a procedure and a replacement needs to be found.To date, there have been no reports of adverse events related to this issue.
