A method to restore root caries
Posted on January 28 2019
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.
Coarse diamond used to make the hole in the matrix
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.
Composite cured through the hole
After the removal of the matrix, cure again
Thanks for reading.
Any thoughts and suggestion would be welcomed!
