Spanish term or phrase: Portamatrices
Buenos días,

Estoy con una traducción médica de español argentino sobre la odontología y me ha salido esta palabra. En el contexto, refiere a una herramienta utilizada en la evaluación bucal. Tiene algún vínculo con matriz ("matrix" en inglés), pero no encuentro resultado satisfecho.

Alguien tiene alguna idea como sería en inglés?

Gracias.
