Class II Composite Restoration Part 2/3

Disclaimer: I am only a D1 at dental school, and I just wanted to put this together for some of my classmates who are struggling a little bit. So it won’t be a perfect restoration and it may not have every single thing that my dental school wants us to do, so use it as a reference. I hope it helps.

  1. The only negative I see with your method is that when you build against the lingual and buccal walls, you are not seating as much composite on the pulpal floor and my have unnoticed voids at the floor. This would significantly decrease the strength of your restoration. You should build your restoration from the floor UPWARDS rather than on the buccal/lingual walls of your prep.

  2. Same composite, it’s probably just the lighting. And yes I do the proximal box first.

  3. what did you fill the mesial with? It doesn’t look like the same shade as the composite? Do you always do the mesial (or distal depending on what type of caries) first??? It looks like you used a different material to fill the mesial

  4. No we’re tested in the head, we have to do everything in the manikin head.  This one is the lower jaw. I just filmed it outside the head so that way people could see what I was doing.
