An alternative method to reduce polymerization shrinkage in direct posterior composite restorations.
Clinicians can reduce enamel microcracks and substantially improve the adaptation of resin-based composite to deep dentin by using the techniques discussed by the authors, and longevity of these restorations potentially can be improved.
Comparison of Microleakage under Amalgam Restoration: An In Vitro Study
Silver diamine fluoride would not be an alternative to dental varnish under amalgam restoration, and samples showed minimal microleakage when compared with group II with a p value <0.002.
Direct composite resin fillings versus amalgam fillings for permanent posterior teeth.
An updated review of studies that evaluate the long-term effectiveness and safety of amalgam versus composite resin restorations, and evaluates the level of certainty in that evidence found low-certainty evidence that composite resinrestorations had almost double the risk of failure compared to amalgam restorATIONS.
Polymerization Shrinkage Behavior Measured by Digital Image Correlation for Methacrylate-based and Silorane-based Composites During Dental Restoration
The polymerization shrinkage behavior of dimethacrylate-based composite (Clearfil AP-X, Kuraray) and silorane-based composite (Filtek P90, 3M ESPE) used for dental composite restorations was measured
Direct composite resin fillings versus amalgam fillings for permanent or adult posterior teeth.
This review reinforces the benefit of amalgam restorations and the results are particularly useful in parts of the world where amalgam is still the material of choice to restore posterior teeth with proximal caries.
A Cross-sectional Retrospective Study of Survival of Amalgam Restoration in a Nigerian Teaching Hospital
Primary placement is the preoccupation of the dentist's in Nigeria while replacement rate is low, however, while recurrent caries is the major cause of restoration failure in economies country in Europe and America, it is not the case in this study.

This paper will describe the use of practice-based networks to evaluate the effectiveness of materials and techniques in dental practice, generally carrying out evaluations of the handling of materials, but with increasing emphasis on the clinical evaluation of restorations.
Teeth with large amalgam restorations and crowns: factors affecting the receipt of subsequent treatment after 10 years.
Teeth with crowns were less likely to receive any treatment or catastrophic treatment over 10 years than were teeth with large amalgam restorations and patient and tooth factors also were related to a tooth experiencing subsequent treatment.
Evaluation of Performance of Dental Providers on Posterior Restorations: Does Experience Matter? A Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) Approach
The principal finding is that the most efficient dentists produce posterior restorations that survive almost 5 months (4.6 months) longer than those by inefficient providers.
