Fifth class lesions are very common in the population, and they seem to become more and more frequent, thus becoming a relevant topic to clinitians and a problem for a lot of patients.

The number of patients who have experienced Cervical Tissue Loss (CTL) is, in fact, growing and the incidence has shown a continuous increase over the years.

The CTL can involve hard tissues and soft tissues: this situation requires a multidisciplinar approach using a combined restorative and periodontal treatment.

 

It is really important to start with a proper etiologic diagnosis. The main causes for CTL:

Acids:  this category embraces all forms of chemical, biochemical and electochemical degradation.

Abrasion: Toothbrush / toothpaste action  

Abfraction: microfracture of tooth substance in areas of stress concentration.

 

Because of the complex interaction of these various mechanisms, it is generally incorrect to designate all CTLs as being caused by only one mechanism. The clinician should consider all etiological and modifying factors before completing the diagnosis or initiating treatment if indicated. 

The restoration of CTL is a big challenge for clinicians and adhesive materials, due the biomechanical aspects, the type of substrate availabe for the adhesion and the isolation of the operative field.

One of the problems could be the isolation: the Lesion can be so cervical that the difference between the buccal/lingual and the vestibular level of the healthy tooth can make the placing of the rubber dam really difficult or almost impossible using a clamp. The situation is different if we manage the  isolation of  the operative field using a dedicated instrument capable of acting, at the same time, as a gentle rubber-dam and as a soft tissues retractor, useful to expose the working area.

In dentistry, research and development of new materials and technologies reach for better prevention and early treatment of dental diseases.

In this context, the concept of "minimally invasive dentistry" is gaining space, a discipline that has its main goal in the respect of the healthy tooth tissue and has the treatment of primary and secondary lesions at the very early stage as a priority.

Careful diagnostic investigation, correct assessment of the biological risks/benefits and – last but not least – the conservative and highly specific removal of decayed tissue, preliminary measures are very important for the achievement of these results.

It is essential that the diagnostic path start from a proper clinical and radiological investigation through conventional diagnostic tools complemented by innovative tools in order to make otherwise clinically hidden lesions visible.

The observation that the enamel, dentin or decayed tissue, exposed to a laser light, emit a specific spontaneous fluorescence made it possible to develop devices that, using laser technology, allow us to attribute a "grading" to the carious lesion severity, which is a prerequisite for subsequent operational choices, more or less favorable to the intervention, both to monitor the evolution in time of the carious pathology and/or the effectiveness of the treatment.

 

 

What do I expect a wedge to do for me?

Well, mainly, posterior direct second class restorations. Those need special recipes. We have to mix good materials, protocols our skills and experience, and sometimes our fantasy; even if we follow the protocols, every second class is different from all the others we have done in the past, and the ones we will do in the future.  

I would like to focus our attention on one of the most important points of the chain, the wedge, and try to answer the former question:  what do I expect a wedge to do for me?

1) To CREATE SPACE by properly separating teeth to compensate for the space between the teeth that the dam and the matrix are going to make me lose.

 

Several clinal procedures need rubber dam placements. It is not easy; especially in the situation where the Root canal treatment has been done on a tooth prepared with vertical perparation or feather edge. It is most difficult when the target is in good isolaltion without soft tissue damage. This tecnique suggests that flowable composite can be used to place temporary wings, (which is good to stabilise the rubber dam) and can be easily removed after treatment. The temporary wings are also helpful when fixing the Rubber dam in restorative dentistry. Technique step by step:
