Operative treatment of caries with focus on resin restorationsin posterior teethFor environmental reasons, composite resin must be the firstchoice of material for restoration of posterior teeth. For dentalhealth reasons, it is therefore interesting to know, whether longevityof resin restorations can compete with longevity of amalgamrestorations.The question is whether the advantages of resin restorations,such as better aesthetics, and better adhesive qualities, leadingto reduced cavity preparation and reinforcement of tooth structure,can compensate shortcomings of the material. Importantshortcomings are the missing caries preventive effect, the insufficientfracture resistance, and the technique sensitivity.Long term clinical studies have led to new knowledge about theseissues, which are highlighted in the present article. Reasonsfor replacement of resin restorations are discussed, and factorsinfluencing longevity are examined, including type of tooth andcavity sizes, various patient related factors, skills of the operator,and the operator’s indications for replacement of restorations, aswell as some general factors.Finally, facts about the various materials’ influence on longevity ofthe resin restorations are highlighted, including the importance ofresin type, resin viscosity, bonding agents, and isolating agents.
