Techniques to Avoid Bleeding of Gingiva during Dental Restorations - Hand Instrument for Gingival Displacement

Jesus M. Gonzalez-Gonzalez [10]

Abstract: Introduction: when a dental restorative treatment is done near the gingiva, it can bleed and restoration will be defective. The aim of this work was to study techniques that prevent the bleeding of the gingiva during dental restorations and propose a hand instrument for gingival displacement. Materials and methods: It was made a review of dental products distributed online through the web pages of 50 companies, from 6 different European countries. It was tried to locate materials and hand instruments to prevent bleeding of the gingiva during dental restorations. Results: no hand instrument was found among the materials distributed by those companies for that purpose. We propose an instrument consisting of three parts: an active part, a handle and a zone of union. Discussion: for its application, it is placed in the free gingival sulcus. Direct pressure on the gingiva gives hemostasis, which facilitates the restoration. Conclusions: the usefulness of this instrument is in Conservative Dentistry to restore tooth cervical lesions.
