Case 150: visually undetected undermined caries RESTORED with composite resin

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.

visually undetected undermined caries RESTORED with composite resin

a patient came with a main complain on his maxillary right first premolar. at a glance, there was no caries, nor cavity. but, radiographic image reveal a deep radiolucency at the proximal (distal) of its tooth structure. after taking a proper informed consent, i started my dental treatment.

  1. rubberdam placement: Hygenic rubberdam clamp (coltene) and sanctuary rubberdam sheet.
  2. cavity preparation and matrix placement with Springclip matrix (TOR VM)
  3. first layer with low shrinkage stress flowable composite resin: Palfique bulkfill flowable
  4. incremental layer of packable composite resin: Palfique LX5 (tokuyama)
  5. application of color modifier: paint on color (coltene)
  6. adjusting, finishing, and polishing with Soflex (3M), Enhance (dentsplySirona)
  7. Radiograhic examination with Vistaray 7.1 (Durr) showed a hermetic obturation, intact margin and homogeneous body of restoration. this will provide a predictable longevity of restoration.

hope this dental treatment will be long last 🙂
