Is a common problem to be able to adapt proximal matrices perfectly in Class II cavities especially when two cavities face each other or the proximal box opens wide enough to difficult the ring placement. A wide variety of preformed matrices, rings and wedges have been developed during the last years in order to maximize the benefits of these kind of systems, but the reality is that not always adjust perfectly and in many occasions have even the opposite effect.
Preservation of a very small enamel ridge can be determining to the longevity of a restoration. Choosing the right time to be conservative – and when not to be – is of primary importance as we tend to see extremely conservative procedures that, paradoxically, can do more harm than good. This trick that I’m about to share is actually an old procedure that has been performed for more than 3 decades: it consists in preserving the thin remaining sound enamel below the gingival margin of the cavity after removing big decay. Thanks to adhesive procedures, it is easy to overcome this problem and respect the most delicate tissues remaining in our clean cavities.
Bulk fill materials are now-a-days a reality. In the posterior region they have proven to be the perfect material when used properly. This kind of materials entered the market almost a decade ago, with the skepticism of a big part of the dental community. Years of research are giving amazing results on the clinical performance of these new generation materials. Posterior restorations are never easy and most of the time is a challenge to avoid postoperative sensitivity and achieve a long term success. Most of the time these problems are triggered by a wrong use of photo curing materials in the cavity base. The characteristics of an ideal cavity base are the following - low or none toxicity - low or none contraction - low or none stress - high sealing power - high bonding strength - good polymerisation - physical resistance - mechanical performance - easy to place Conventional composites many times do not comply with these characteristics if they are used in increments of more than 2mm. Bulk fill composites have demonstrated to be an ideal base material, giving another advantage over regular composite and cavity bases such as glass ionomer or RMGIC, and of course comfortably surpassing conventional non-adhesive cements New bulk-fill composite materials are on the market for depths of up to 5 mm in an effort to simplify and improve placement of direct composite posterior restorations. Depth of cure for any dental composite is a critical issue, and especially for bulk-fill composites and research is proving that with encouraging results even in critical depth conditions. Bulkfill use for restorations under high occlusal load is subject to caution, a veneering material is highly advised, even if medium term results are encouraging, highly filled composites are still physically superior. 3D micro-computer tomography imaging has shown that the volumetric contraction and volumetric shrinkage are significative less than conventional composites, and with the correct use of adhesives this strategy is highly advisable to use this strategy. The bulk&body technique gives the following advantages. - Ideal material in cavity base - Ideal material in surface - Good polymerisation on deep layers - Low stress and contraction on the cavity bottom - Time saving - Good color blending The bulk and body technique, described in 2013 in www.styleitaliano.org follows the path of present and previous research and clinical experience of many authors. Stating thus, that this group has followed the natural logic that other authors have adopted with the use and advantages of these materials and does not claim any authorship rather than the Bulk&Body name.
