Class II Direct Resins: New Choices in Matrix Systems - Part 3

Description:
In Part 3 of this series, Dr. Glenn van As continues the discussion of some of the new choices available in Separating Rings, especially as they relate to enhancing successful contact development in class II direct resin restorations. In addition, he details the step-by-step techniques involving Rubber dam placement, hemostasis, and wedge placement. Emphasis is placed on what is required to optimize the utilization of the new generation of separating rings including the choice of composites for these type of restorations.

I should think that the main problem with the glory hole is when bonding gets through the hole, coating the adjacent tooth, and full composite then gets packed over it. If this happens (especially if a slightly wider than ideal glory hole has been made), you may have a big problem getting the matrix off---you'll have to cut it off... Then you won't have any separation between the teeth at all (since they'll be bonded together)! When this happens, an Interproximal Saw will be your saving grace, but it may take a bit of "sawing" to get through the glory-hole-bonded-contact. good luck!

Great overview Glen. Much appreciated.

It is interesting to learn that there is a glory hole at the matrix during preparation in order to make the class II restoration contacting tightly with the adjacent teeth. However, I am not sure whether the dental floss can pass through the interproximal area or not. It doesn't show at the lecture that the floss can pass through the interproximal area. or not.

very useful lecture thanks.. I like it so much..

[quote=gordon west]Glenn,
Nice overview of the sectional ring systems, I too like the V3. Which bonding system and composite are you using? Do you have any research to back the use of laser on the dentin? Thanks again and nice job.

Hi Gordon, thanks for the compliment. Yes there is a study that looked at bacterial disinfection of 20 preps using ErYAG and bacterial growth vs 20 preps not using the laser.

In all but one of the 20 preps using the laser - no bacterial growth were observed.

Here is a study that showed dentin bacterial reduction up to 500 microns. Lasers will disinfect well, that has been shown in both perio and endo research. The aim is not to improve bonding but more to disinfect and open up the dentin for bonding.

Decontamination of deep dentin by means of erbium, chromium:yttrium-scandium-gallium-garnet laser irradiation.

The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the depth of effectiveness of erbium, chromium:yttrium-scandium-gallium-garnet (Er,Cr:YSGG) laser irradiation on microorganism reduction. From human roots, dentin slices of 100 microm to 1,000 microm thickness were prepared. These specimens were sterilized and then inoculated with 1 microl of Enterococcus faecalis suspension. The backs of the specimens were then irradiated with Er,Cr:YSGG radiation at a pulse energy of 3.13 mJ, delivered at an incidence angle of 5 degrees to the dentin slice surface. A control group was left without irradiation. The remaining bacteria were collected in 1 ml sterilized NaCl solution, serially diluted and seeded in Columbia-Agar plates. Despite the low pulse energy of 3.13 mJ, the Er,Cr:YSGG laser irradiation resulted in significant bacterial reduction up to a dentin thickness of 500 microm (P < 0.05). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) micrographs of the contaminated and irradiated surfaces showed the absence of a smear layer and opened dentinal tubules.

Selecting the Right Composite for the Anterior Segment
In this presentation, Dr. Fahl will introduce the necessary concepts for the general practitioner to implement direct composite restorations in the anterior segment. A systematic approach for solving day-to-day challenges will be introduced based on the physical and color properties of current restorative systems. The selection of appropriate materials for distinct areas of the anterior dentition will be discussed and presented within the realm of its clinical significance. Dr. Fahl will include tips and tricks for achieving seamless, long-lasting artistic composite restorations.

Adhesive Dentistry: From Direct to Indirect Restorations
Restorative dentistry has changed in recent years. A good esthetic and functional rehabilitation starts from the proper clinical evaluation of the patient and of his problems, planning all the clinical and laboratory procedures in order to reduce the possibility of performing a subpar restoration. It is very important to have a synergy between the clinician, the dental technician and the patient and to make the right use of the protocols and a flow chart to address all patient needs. The goal is to achieve the right balance between biology, esthetic and function by applying a minimally invasive approach.

“Finally” - Predictable Indirect Conservative Posterior Restorations
Predictable and repeatable results can be achieved through materials and clinical practices that, on one hand, preserve the original structure of the compromised tooth and, on the other hand, involve a very low biologic price. New technologies for the enamel-dentin adhesion and the continuous evolution of more sophisticated esthetic materials (composite resins and porcelains) allow the effective reaching of verifiable and predictable results. This lecture aims to point out the relevant guidelines for obtaining predictable indirect posterior restorations through the evaluation of a correct biomechanical approach rather than giving just a “trendy” adhesive approach.

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel &quot;Super-Closed&quot; Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects

Fatigue Resistance and Crack Propensity of Novel "Super-Closed" Sandwich Composite Resin Restorations in Large MOD Defects
To asses the influence of conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) vs resin-modified GIC (RMGIC) as a base material for novel, super-closed sandwich restorations (SCSR) and its effect on shrinkage-induced crack propensity and in vitro accelerated fatigue resistance. A standard MOD slot-type tooth preparation was applied to 30 extracted maxillary molars. A modified sandwich restoration was used, in which the enamel/dentin bonding agent was applied first, followed by a Ketac Molar or Fuji II LC base, leaving 2mm for composite resin material. Shrinkage induced enamel cracks were tracked with photography and transillumination. Samples were loaded until fracture or to a maximum of 185,000 cycles under isometric chewing, starting with a load of 200 N and gradually up to a maximum of 30,000 each...
