Case 131: Class II restoration adjacent to edentulous area

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


Class II restoration adjacent to edetulous area.

This case represent the usage of matrix to contour proximal wall and to make a predictable marginal integrity in the cavity at the proximal wall adjacent to edentulous area. At a glance, maybe someone think we need no matrix to restore this tooth due to the inability of some matrix to being stable and fix at the place without adjacent tooth. Here i used springclip matrix, which can be stabilized without the need of adjacent tooth like sectional matrix. Actually, we can also used universal/tofflemire matrix.


after having proper infomed consent, i started my dental treatment as follows:

  1. rubberdam placement: hu friedy rubberdam clamp, nictone rubberdam sheet
  2. matrix placement: Springclip matrix (TOR VM)
  3. low shrinkage stress flowable composite material to fill the tunnel preparation: Filtek Bulkfill flowable (3M)
  4. packable composite resin as coronal portion: Filtek Z350 XT (3M)
  5. finishing and polishing with soflex (3M) and enhance (Dentsply sirona)
  6. Xray evaluation with Vistaray 7.1 (Durr) showing an intact margin and homogeneous restoration’s body.

hope this dental treatment will be long last! 🙂
