Assalamualaikum 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.

Replacing old and improper GIC Filling
The good embrasure is one of the important thing to be achieved in managing a class II restoration. An overhanging restoration is considered failed in mimic dental anatomy, leads to marginal gingivitis, and periodontitis, also secondary caries due to expected micro leakage.
Here i got this patient complaining her upper left first molar that has been filled for two weeks and still feeling painful. After receiving proper inform consent, I started my dental treatment.

First I removed all the old filling (GIC) , then I put rubber dam (sanctuary rubber dam clamp and sheet) prior to composite filling restoration. I put greater curve matrix and wood wedge, placed bulkfill composite (Filtek bulkfill – 3M) then I put universal composite (Vit~L~essence – Ultradent). Polished with soflex (3M) and enhance (dentsply).

X-ray examination with Vistaray 7.1 (Durr) showed homogenously filled cavity with intact margin from composite resin and tooth structure.


hope this dental treatment will be long last..
