Root Cavity Fillings Pune

Loss of tooth structure on facial or lingual surfaces and within the gingival third are referred to as class 5 defects. Caries and toothbrush abrasion often combined with abfraction cause loss of tooth structure. Abfraction is bending of tooth structure caused by force which is most commonly tooth grinding. Wear facets are common on these teeth. Bending in the gingival third is thought to accelerate toothbrush abrasion.

Gum recession makes cavities more likely to develop because it can expose the roots of teeth. Then bacteria can access the inner layers of the tooth more easily. Gum recession makes older people prone to root cavity. This type of decay often results from difficulty cleaning the root areas, a lack of adequate saliva flow, a diet high in sugar, or a combination of these factors. Root decay can be the most difficult type of tooth decay to prevent and treat.

Root cavities or Class V Caries which affect gingival 1/3 of facial or lingual surfaces of anterior or posterior teeth can be filled with Glass ionomer cement or composites depending on the depth of the cavity.

A glass ionomer cement (GIC) is one of a class of materials commonly used in dentistry as filling materials and luting cements. These materials are based on the reaction of silicate glass powder and polyalkeonic acid. These tooth-coloured materials were introduced in 1972 for use as restorative materials for anterior teeth (particularly for eroded areas, Class III and V cavities).As they bond chemically to dental hard tissues and release fluoride for a relatively long period, modern-day applications of GICs have expanded. The desirable properties of glass ionomer cements make them useful materials in the restoration of carious lesions in low-stress areas such as smooth-surface and small anterior proximal cavities They need not be put in layer by layer, like in composite fillings.
