The Tricky Points About Making Longer Lasting Posterior Composite Restorations
Posterior composite restorations are among the most common clinical procedures of dentists in daily practice. In recent years, many innovations have been made in the materials and techniques to facilitate these applications and to keep these restorations longer in the oral service. New approaches for appropriate indications, caries removal, matrix and wedge use, adhesive and composite selection, and finishing and polishing procedures can enable us to perform successful restorations in a short way. In this presentation, the current developments in the application steps of posterior composite restorations will be explained in the light of relevant scientific data.
