Marginal adaptation of direct composite and sandwich restorations in Class II cavities with cervical margins in dentine



Marginal adaptation of direct composite and sandwich restorations in Class II cavities with cervical margins in dentine



Journal of Dentistry 27(2): 119-128



The aim of this study was to evaluate the marginal adaptation of direct Class II sandwich restorations with resin-modified glass-ionomer cements and compomers in comparison to base and total bond restorations. For sandwich restorations with a triple cure resin-modified glass-ionomer cement the influence of different light curing techniques was also evaluated. Large butt-joint class II cavities with cervical margins 1 mm below the cemento-enamel junction were cut into 120 extracted human molars. The cavities (15 groups, n = 8) were filled using a sandwich, base or total bond technique with materials from five different manufacturers. A three-sited light curing technique was used in 13 groups. For the material combination Vitremer/Z100 two additional groups with a different wand positioning and a metal matrix were evaluated. After water storage for 21 days and thermocycling (2000x, 5-55 degrees C), replicas were quantitatively analysed in the SEM. Statistical analysis was performed with the Kruskal-Wallis test and the Bonferroni test at p < 0.05. The marginal adaptation of vertical enamel margins was not dependent on the restorative technique. For margins in dentine, marginal adaptation was significantly better with the sandwich technique than with a base or total bond technique for all materials. There were no significant differences between the base and total bond technique. Overall, resin-modified glass-ionomer cements showed somewhat better results than compomers in sandwich restorations, though differences were not significant for some criteria. Vitremer/Z100 sandwich restorations applied with a metal matrix showed the highest mean percentage of excellent margins of all experimental groups. Both resin-modified glass-ionomer cements and compomers can improve the marginal quality when used in a sandwich technique. Further research is necessary to determine the ideal material combination for sandwich restorations.
