Homework ?: Access to anterior restorations is usually from the lingual, not the occlusal (incisal for anteriors). The matrix band is best designed to replace the missing wall on premolar and molar interproximal restorations, allowing for occlusal placement of the restorative material. http://nextstepdentalresource.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Training-Manual-Tofflemire-and-Matrix-Band.pdf
