Clinical Key Points of Class II Direct Composite Restoration
Direct composite restorations have been widely accepted as a reliable bonded restorative option to achieve minimal intervention with improved physical properties of resin composite and advancement of adhesive systems. Recently, relatively complicated Class II composite restorations have been more frequently performed because they are esthetically pleasing and easily accepted by patients.
In these years, auxiliary instruments such as matrix retainers and wedges for restoring Class II cavities have been enhanced. Using these instruments appropriately brings a promising clinical outcome restoring functions and esthetics of even posterior teeth in Class II cavities. This article will introduce instruments and techniques that can be easily incorporated into daily practice for Class II direct composite restorations, where it is difficult to restore the contact tightness and the anatomy of the proximal surfaces.
