A Clear Polyvinyl siloxane Technique for the Placement of Posterior Direct Composites
by Dr. Kamsiah BDS, MDSc
After years of clinical dentistry, I saw a simple but effective way to restore posterior teeth with composite material. This preoperative occlusal registration technique using cure through polyvinyl siloxane material that reproduces occlusal surfaces before the placement and polymerisation of the composite resin, thus reducing the time needed for shaping, polishing, and occlusal adjustments. This technique, due to the occlusal registration method utilised, allows us to efficiently and predictably reproduce the occlusal morphology being restored with direct resin-based restorations.
The following case study illustrates a step-by-step technique to achieve an anatomical, functional, and aesthetic posterior direct composite restoration.
