NITTY GRITTY Composite Techniques PART 2 – PDP120

June 29, 2022

Welcome to PART 2 of composite excellence with Dr. Javier Quirós where we cover the procedural details such as the interproximal management of composites and the prevention of stains.

Protrusive Dental Pearl: There is a benefit of having nice tight contacts on our temporary crowns – but how can we polish our temporary crowns without ending up with open contacts? The trick is to get a Sharpie pen or indelible pencil and color in a small circle (maybe about two to three millimeters) mesial and distal of where the contact area is. Now finish and polish your temporary crown using burs/discs BUT do not touch that penciled mark. Ta da! You have just maintained the contact area. I know, why didn’t anyone tell you before?!
