Dent Mater 19:680–685, 2003.24. 4.17). e second type is not really considered a part of tooth preparation but, rather, the rst step for the insertion of the restorative material. 4.12 Initial tooth preparation stage for conventional preparations. In some instances, debris clings to walls and angles despite the aforementioned eorts, and it may be necessary to loosen this material with an explorer or small cotton pellet. Some desensitizers not only are eective disinfectants but also are able to occlude (“plug”) the dentinal tubules by cross-linking and precipitating the proteins in the dentinal tubule uid.32-35 Preparations designed for amalgam restoration should be desensitized with a solution that contains 5% glutaraldehyde and 35% 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) before amalgam placement.36 e use of this type of desensitizer allows prevention of rapid uid movement associated with osmotic gradients and temperature gradients. Cochrane Database Syst Rev (3):CD007517, 2016, doi:10.1002/14651858.CD007517.pub3.29. Retention of amalgam in these areas requires the creation of secondary features (coves or grooves) in the dentinal walls that serve to retain the restoration (see Step 7).Composite restorations are primarily retained in the tooth by micromechanical and, depending on the adhesive, chemical bonding that is established between the restoration and the tooth structure. is balance is best accomplished by utilization of the selective caries removal protocol (see Chapter 2). Awareness of the point of contact of the opposing functional cusp is essential as occlusal contact directly on the marginal interface will result in early fatigue and failure of the margin. When properly prepared, skirts provide additional, opposing vertical walls that increase retention of the restoration. Most currently published clinical trials focus on the use of glass ionomer materials to restore tunnel preparations and have found these materials to be inadequate for use as denitive, long-term restora-tions. Removal of excess glu-taraldehyde and HEMA by rinsing with water may signicantly reduce any risk. When this occurs there is a smooth transition across the marginal junction and both tooth and restorative material have maximal strength.

Complex tooth prep: 3 surfaces involved. Preparations required to correct caries lesions or other defects that develop in the gingival third of the facial or lingual surfaces of all teeth are termed Class V prepara-tions. Note, in the upper exploded view, that the cavosurface angle (cs) may be visualized by imaginary projections of the preparation wall (w′ ) and of the unprepared surface (us′ ) contiguous with the margin, forming angle cs′. e more extensive the preparation, the greater the risk of iatrogenic damage of adjacent structures or restorations during procedures. Although not considered part of the tooth preparation, the cementation procedure does aect the retention of these restorations, and some cementing materials require pretreatment of the dentin, resulting in varying degrees of micro-mechanical bonding. of teeth. Linn J, Messer HH: Eect of restorative procedures on the strength of endodontically treated molars. Gingival oor enamel (and margin) is unsup-ported by dentin and friable unless removed. An enamel wall with this conguration is able to withstand the forces associated with occlusal loading. 4.11 Diagram of a carious ssure. Pashley DH, Tay FR, Breschi L, et al: State of the art etch-and-rinse adhesives. is resultant hypermineralized state of the dentin (mineralization above that which is found in normal dentin as the lumens of the dentinal tubules are lled with mineral in addition to the normal mineraliza-tion of the intertubular dentin) is referred to as sclerotic dentin. 4.1, b). Polymeric restorative materials (e.g., composite resins) have no minimal thickness.When developing the outline form in Class I and II preparations, the end of the cutting instrument prepares a relatively horizontal pulpal wall of uniform depth into the tooth (i.e., the pulpal wall follows the original occlusal surface contours and the DEJ, which are approximately parallel; see Fig. Occlusion of the dentinal tubules limits the potential for rapid tubular uid movement. is procedure is also applicable to supplemental narrow grooves extending up cusp inclines. e clinical crown is the portion of the tooth (usually predominantly covered by enamel) that is exposed in the oral cavity. Keeping the matrix band around the tooth, the screw of the retainer is tightened so that the band perfectly fits around the tooth. Controlled, conservative removal of any remaining tooth structure, based on the needs of the restorative material, is always accomplished with the awareness that the intracoronal restoration will not add strength to the tooth over the long term, regardless of the nature of the restorative material being used.ABCcsjmapdemAxis of preparationAxis ofpreparationrmus’cs’w’rm’• Fig. the physical limitations of the planned restorative material. e 90-degree root-surface margin provides a butt joint relationship between the restorative material and the dentin (with overlying cementum) preparation wall, a conguration that provides appropriate strength to both.An acute, abrupt change in a preparation wall outline form increases the diculty of optimal adaptation of the restorative material. Currently, many indications for treatment are not related to carious destruction, and the preparation of the tooth no longer is referred to as cavity preparation, but as tooth preparation.Tooth Preparation: Denition and Foundational ConceptsTooth preparation is the mechanical alteration of a defective, injured, or diseased tooth such that placement of restorative material reestablishes normal form (and therefore function) including esthetic corrections, where indicated. Restorative materials that need beveled margins require tooth preparation outline form extensions that must anticipate the nal cavosurface position and form that will result after the bevels have been placed.Step 2: Primary Resistance FormPrimary resistance form may be dened as the shape and placement of the preparation walls (oors) that best enable the remaining tooth structure, as well as the anticipated restoration, to withstand masticatory forces primarily oriented parallel to the long axis of the tooth. Mach Z, Regent J, Staninec M, et al: e integrity of bonded amalgam restorations: A clinical evaluation after ve years. Pulpal wall: Internal wall perpendicular to long axis of the tooth, occlusal to pulp. Using a heavily illustrated, step-by-step approach, Sturdevant’s Art and Science of Operative Dentistry, 7th Edition helps you master the fundamentals and procedures of restorative and preventive dentistry and learn to make informed decisions to solve patient needs. e pulpal wall is an internal wall that is oriented perpen-dicular to the long axis of the tooth and is located occlusal to the pulp. Evid Based Dent 17(3):94–95, 2016, doi:10.1038/sj.ebd.6401194.21. is change has fostered a more conservative tooth preparation philosophy. e periphery of preparations for polycrystalline, (edges) of the planned restoration.

Sturdevant's Art and Science of Operative Dentistry. e decision to reduce a cusp should be approached judiciously. It is essential that the outline form be visualized (i.e., mentally anticipated) as much as possible before any mechanical alteration of the tooth has begun. In addition to richly illustrated, step-by-step descriptions of procedures, it offers essential information on basic topics, such as dental instruments and equipment, nomenclature and general principles of tooth preparation, isolation of the operating field, matrix and wedge systems, light curing, and pulpal protection. Axial wall: Internal wall parallel to long axis of the tooth. Dent Mater 18:470–478, 2002.16. Tooth preparations must also include design features that take into account the physical limitations of the planned restorative material.Dental restorative materials are best considered in terms of their ability to survive the stresses of the oral environment in comparison with natural tooth structure.

Small retentive indentions, referred to as “coves,” are utilized for retention in the incisal areas of Class III amalgams.Historically, retention grooves in Class II preparations for amalgam restorations were recommended to increase retention of the proximal portion against movement secondary to creep. Note the axis of preparation aligned with the long axis of the mandibular posterior tooth crown. Various materials that have been utilized to establish this protective barrier include suspensions or dispersions of zinc oxide, calcium hydroxide, or resin-modied glass ionomer (RMGI) that are applied to the tooth surface.15 ese materials are referred to as liners when used in a relatively thin lm.15 e term base is used to describe the placement of materials, used in thicker dimensions, beneath permanent restora-tions to provide for mechanical, chemical, and thermal protection of the pulp. However, the attachment between polymeric materials and dentin deteriorates over time.Tooth preparations are usually limited to the clinical crowns of teeth. For example, an area of dentin that has experienced episodes of demineralization and remineralization often clinically appears discolored, compared with normal dentin, yet may be rm to tactile exploration and should not be removed. CHAPTER 4 Fundamentals of Tooth Preparation 123 tooth surface. Tooth preparation features or sections that are parallel (or nearly so) to the long axis of the tooth crown are commonly described as vertical, such as vertical height of cusps, or vertical walls.

Carious tissue that has been demineralized and structurally damaged to this level feels tactilely soft and is therefore referred to as soft dentin. e objective of this process, referred to as enameloplasty, is to create a smooth, saucer-shaped external surface that is self-cleansing or easily cleaned (Fig. ese materials eectively bond to tooth structure, release uoride, and have sucient strength.

Tooth preparation is guided through careful consideration of the implications of many factors. All preparations in stress-bearing areas, once completed, should ensure healthy dentinal support of remain-ing enamel.Tunnel Tooth Preparations for Amalgam, Composite Resin, and Glass IonomersIn an eort to be conservative in the removal of tooth structure, some investigators advocate a “tunnel” tooth preparation. Every preparation is designed to conserve as much dentin as possible for the strength of the enamel and the protection of the pulp. For example, preparation of a proximal caries lesion on a posterior tooth will frequently result in facial, lingual, and gingival walls that diverge proximally.
