Frequency and Quality of the Repaired Restorations in Adults from Varna, Bulgaria
Abstract: Traditionally, the accepted treatment strategy for restorations exhibiting signs of deterioration and failure was total replacement. According to the new minimally invasive approach when minimal defects have occurred or the diagnosed defect is localized only in one region of the restoration the repairmen is better choice than the total replacement of the restoration. The aim of the presented study was to evaluate the percentage of repaired restoration in a cohort group of patient, their quality and longevity. One hundred adult patients were examined with the visual-tactile method. Decayed, missed and filled teeth were recorded. Teeth with repaired restorations were recorded separately. Data concerning the longevity of there restoration was gathered.18.3 % of the restorations were with repairs. Thirty five percent of the reparations were made during the last year and 11, 6 % was older than nine years.53.5 % of the repaired restorations were on molars, 30.2 % on premolars and 16.3 % on front teeth. More than half of the reparations had poor marginal adaptation, marginal discoloration and secondary caries. Based on the data obtained from this study we may conclude that reparation of restorations as a treatment method in cases of localized restoration defects is known and applied by dental practitioners.
