Case 122: Replacing old composite with the new sphere tec composite resin on molar

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 composite with the new one on lower left first molar


Patient came to have a dental treatment due to a sensitive tooth on lower left region. It was being restored with composite resin at 2014-2015 but the anatomy didnt look well, showed some ditching, and secondary caries (or maybe a progression on unfinished caries removal)

After taking a proper informed consent, i started my dental treatment as follows:
1. Rubberdam placement: hu friedy rubberdam clamp and blossom rubberdam sheet.
2. Composite resin: CeramX SphereTec shade A4 for dentin, and CeramX SphereTec (Dentsply) A1 for enamel shade.
3. Finishing and polishing: Soflex (3M) and Enhance (Dentsply)
4. Xray with VistaRay 7.1 (Durr): showed a good radiopacity of this composite with good marginal integrity, and homogeneous restoration body. This will provide a good longevity of this restoration.

Patient now feels non sensitive directly after filling, it seems the leakage of the previous restoration responsible for this cause.
