Evaluation of a new basic filling restorative material.
In contemporary dentistry, clinicians have essentially three types of material choices for direct restorations: amalgam, resin composite, and glass ionomer restoratives.
Due to the toxicity of mercury and the subsequent environmental problems, the search for alternatives continues and search into new composite restorative materials intensifies. Recognized disadvantages of tooth colored resin based restorative materials are as polymerization shrinkage, postoperative sensitivity and technical procedure complexity. Higher rates of occlusal wear and lower toughness are disadvantages of glass ionomer restoratives.
Therefore, alternative materials are being developed to compensate the disadvantages of current contemporary tooth coloured restorative materials. Nevertheless, the search for simplification for restoring missing dental tissues introduced the "basic filling concept".
This project aims to study the clinical performance of this new basic filling restorative material for Class I and Class II cavities. 80 patients are recruited to the project which is carried out at the School of dentistry, Istanbul Medipol University, Turkey.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the clinical performance of a new basic filling restorative material for Class I and Class II cavities that needs to be restored in permanent teeth.
Basic filling material combines the handling properties of glass ionomer restorative materials with the mechanical properties of resin composite restorative materials.
Extensive laboratory studies have been performed on the new material, but the clinical attributes have yet to be disclosed.
The study will be carried out as a prospective study, with assessment of the restorations after three year.
The project includes 80 patients. Most of the patients have been recruited from the Istanbul Medipol University Dental Clinics in Istanbul.
After giving their consent to take part in the study Class I & II restorations of both upper and lower molars and premolars are performed
The treatment procedure is:
The patients are offered local anesthetic before treatment start. The cavity is excavated and filled according to the guidelines for composite restorations.
The control procedure is:
The restoration is evaluated according to marginal adaptation, cavo surface marginal discoloration, approximal contact, fractures, caries associated with restorations and postoperative hypersensitivity. The controls will take place after two weeks, one year, two years and three years.

Composition of saliva plays an important role in defining the dental caries risk for an individual. The role of trace elements present in saliva on dental caries is still not clear. Thus this study wa...
The predisposition to tooth decay (DENTAL CARIES).
Coagulated exudate isolated from several species of the tropical tree Palaquium (Sapotaceae). It is the trans-isomer of natural rubber and is used as a filling and impression material in dentistry and orthopedics and as an insulator in electronics. It has also been used as a rubber substitute.
Diagnostic tests conducted in order to measure the increment of active DENTAL CARIES over a period of time.
Dental caries involving the tooth root, cementum, or cervical area of the tooth.
The degree of approximation or fit of filling material or dental prosthetic to the tooth surface. A close marginal adaptation and seal at the interface is important for successful dental restorations.
