Assalammualaikum Wr Wb.. Good Morning!!

welcome back to SekilasKonservasiGigi.Com, a full story of my mini series updated from my social media such as instagramfacebookgoogle plus, and also twitter. Sometimes, I also updated my cases at Line or Linkedin. 🙂 this topic will focus only on conservative dentistry cases such as restorative dentistry and endodontic or root canal treatment.


This patient came to me with an old-overhanging-improper amalgam filling yet causing food impaction and secondary caries. The xray examination showed a leaked at the margin, and voids at the body of restoration/filling material.. and this filling had been there for almost 9 years..

The replacement begin with removal of old amalgam filling and secondary caries, the cavity was almost reaching the pulp, the tooth still vital..
I filled the cavity with compositeresin (Estelite from Tokuyama) shade A3 on marginal and OA3 at the occlusal. Polished the cavity with# soflex (from 3M ESPE) and Enhance from Dentsply.
