Case 152: change amalgam filling with (bulkfill) composite resin, why not?

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.

My restorative journey: change amalgam filling with (bulkfill) composite resin, why not?

A patient came to me with a chief complain of his lower back tooth which was quite sensitive and already filled by another operator for more than 5 years. I found out an amalgam filling on mandibular left first molar with a crack lines and secondary caries. After taking a proper informed consent i started my dental treatment as seen on the video. I used bulkfill composite resin with a slight amount of color modifier (tint).

  1. Rubberdam placement: hu-friedy rubberdam clamp on lower molar and it’s respected sheet
  2. cavity prepaparation
  3. Composite resin restoration with Filtek Bulkfill (3M)
  4. contouring, finishing, and polishing with Soflex (3M), Enhance (dentsplySirona)
  5. Radiograhic examination with Vistaray 7.1 (Durr) showed an intact margin and homogeneous body of restoration. this will provide a predictable longevity of restoration.

hope this dental treatment will be long last 🙂
