Restoration Methods Preferred by Dental Practitioners for Ensuring the Longevity of Composites in Extensive Posterior Restoration
Keywords:Dentists, Posterior composite restorations, Incremental curing, rubber dam
To find the restoration methods preferred by dental practitioners for ensuring the longevity of composites in extensive posterior restoration.
A cross sectional descriptive study was conducted in 150 dentists of Sharif College of Dentistry, SMDC, Lahore from June 2019 to July 2020. All participants irrespective of their age, gender and clinical experience were included. Practitioners who had never used composites for posterior restoration were excluded from the study. Data was collected using a pre validated questionnaire.
There was a statistically non-significant association between designation of the clinicians and the techniques used for ensuring longevity of extensive restorations (P=0.255). That majority of the house officers (46%), postgraduate residents (7.3%) and consultants (29.3%) used incremental curing.
Most of the house officers used incremental curing, majority of the postgraduate students used the incremental curing technique while most of the faculty members preferred incremental curing for the longevity of the restorations.
