Case Report: Overhanging Fillings in Restorative Dental Treatments and Endodontics
Abstract: Conservative dental treatments and endodontic treatments constitute a large portion of the operative professional practices of dentists. Operative dentistry involves risk of complication by its nature. However, inappropriate or careless approaches of dentists in some cases may result in undesired outcomes such as malpractice. One of the most frequently seen malpractices in conservative dentistry and endodontics is overhanging filling. Two cases are presented in this paper as examples to the clinical conditions overhanging fillings may lead to. Information was provided also on treatment processes and follow-up statuses of the patients.
