A method to restore root caries

Posted on January 28 2019

Introduction:

Great case submitted by Dr. Ahmad Fayd.

I get these root caries frequently, where the occlusal surface is usually intact with a huge defect on the root. In my opinion, to include the occlusal surfaces and make classic class 2 preps for these teeth would weaken them. Here is a great case where I used Greater Curve and created windows.

Step 1

 

Step 2

 

Step 3

 

Step 4

 

Step 5

Coarse diamond used to make the hole in the matrix

Step 6

After prime and bond

After prime and bond - then inject some flowable and snow plow with your favorite composite. In this case I used Majesty flow and Exquisite.

 

Step 7

 

Step 8

Composite cured through the hole

Step 9

After the removal of the matrix, cure again

Step 10

 

Step 11

 

Thanks for reading.
