POLYACID-MODIFIED COMPOSITE RESINS (COMPOMERS)

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Friday 25 April 2008 with 0 comments



RECOMMENDED USES

  • Class III and V restorations in adults
  • Class I and II in children
  • Medium caries risk patients??


Compomers exhibit few traditional GIC-like properties. All must be light cured; therefore material should not be used in areas that the light will not reach. Etching has been found to increase retention 3X and can reduce microleakage by improving the marginal seal. They do possess easy handling properties; however, their physical properties are less acceptable than composite.
