This is because in cavity class V there is little or no enamel at the cervical margin.
New inserts will be available for Mectron PIEZOSURGERYA: from tips dedicated to mini dental implants to new applications in pros- thesis related to the finishing of the cervical margin in crown preparations.
Cervical enamel projections (CEPs) are the focal apical extension of the coronal enamel beyond the normally smooth cervical margin on to the root of the tooth".
This will prevent the OIL from forming and help to prevent future staining and breakdown at the cervical margin.
Plaque scores were measured using the plaque-disclosing solution (basic fuchsin mouthwash) and the Turesky modification of Quigley and Hein's technique (Carranza and Newman, 1996) on a scale of 0 to 5: 0 = no plaque; 1 = separate flecks of plaque at the cervical margin of the tooth; 2 = a thin, continuous band of plaque (up to 1 mm) at the cervical margin; 3 = a band of plaque wider than 1 mm but covering less than one-third of the crown; 4 = plaque covering at least one-third but less than two-thirds of the crown; and 5= plaque covering two-thirds or more of the crown.
In position B, impacted tooth was between occlusal plane and cervical margin of second molar while a tooth below cervical margin was labeled position C.
New inserts will be available for Mectron PIEZOSURGERyA: from tips dedicated to mini dental implants to new applications in prosthesis related to the finishing of the cervical margin in crown preparations.
Except for the force concentration at the cervical margin, the fibre reinforced post induces a stress field quite similar to that of the intact tooth.
Careful observation of large tooth revealed an indentation on the labial and palatal surface running from the incisal edge to the cervical margin almost dividing the crown into two halves and prominent cingulum on the palatal surface (Fig 1).
She had undergone an attempted hysterectomy at another hospital and histopathology was consistent with squamous cell carcinoma, with positive resection cervical margins.
Direct iatrogenic prosthetic factor with periodontal risk (iatrogenic prosthetic restorations by cervical margins axially and transversally maladapted long with the violation of the biological space, wide, through incorrect axial vestibulary oral and proximal outlines over contoured, under contoured) promotes retention and secondary accumulation of plaque along with triggering of pathogenic phenomena in superficial periodontium.
Composite marginal adaptation is more critical in class V Cavities where there is little or no enamel at the cervical margins, and the restoration comes in contact with cementum.
