Flowable Composite Resin : A Versatile Material

  title={Flowable Composite Resin : A Versatile Material},
  author={Dr. Saraswati Sachan and Dr. Isha Srivastava and Dr. Manish Ranjan},
Aesthetic dentistry can promote a beautiful smile that parents and their children desire. We are fortunate to have dental materials and devices that provide us the opportunity to perform aesthetic dentistry. Many different composite resin products have found their way into dental practice.Composite consists of inorganic fillers chemically embeddedin a resin matrix. A newer type of composite known as “flowable composite” came into existance because of its low viscosity and ability to be syringed… Expand
Knowledge, Attitude and Practice on Dental Amalgam Restoration among Dental Students
Amalgam has been used in Dentistry for about 150 to 200 years and is still under use due to its low cost, ease of application, strength and durability. It is an alloy of mercury, is an excellent andExpand


The effect of an intermediate layer of flowable composite resin on microleakage in packable composite restorations.
The use of flowable composite resin as intermediate material does not reduce microleakage in Class II direct packable Composite resin restorations on young permanent teeth in vitro. Expand
Flowable composites for bonding orthodontic retainers.
Flowable composites provided satisfactory SBS and wire pullout values, comparable to a standard orthodontic resin, and therefore can be used as an alternative for direct bonding of lingual retainers. Expand

It appears that the use of a flowable composite resin (Tetric Flow) plus a bonding agent (Optibond) in the proximal box of a Class II restoration in permanent teeth will significantly reduce the microleakage at the cavosurface margin when compared with an injectable glass ionomer (Fuji II LC) with or without a bondingAgent.

Adhesive properties of bonded orthodontic retainers to enamel: stainless steel wire vs fiber-reinforced composites
PURPOSE: The objectives of this study were to compare the bond strength of a stainless steel orthodontic wire vs various fiber-reinforced composites (FRC) used as orthodontic retainers on enamel,Expand
Flowable composites as intermediate agents without adhesive application in resin composite repair.
Flowable composites and adhesives showed a good interfacial quality and Composite substrate and intermediate agent were significant factors (Two-way ANOVA, P < 0.001); Bond strengths achieved with Gradia Direct Anterior were higher than Filtek Supreme XT. Expand
Contraction stress of flowable composite materials and their efficacy as stress-relieving layers.
Using a flowable resin-based composite as a restorative material is not likely to reduce the effects of polymerization stress, as the flowable composites produced stress levels similar to those of nonflowable materials. Expand
The Competition between the Composite-Dentin Bond Strength and the Polymerization Contraction Stress
The influence of contraction stresses, developed during the polymerization of composites, on adhesion to dentin treated with a dentin adhesive was studied for a chemically- and a light-activatedExpand
