Flowable CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Flowable Composites

Flowable composites are low-viscosity resin materials with less filler than universal composites. Consistency, viscosity, handling characteristics, and direct delivery have made flowables a popular choice as both a restorative and adjunctive material.
 
Commonly used in class III, IV, and V restorations, flowables have a wide range of additional applications, including use as bases, cavity liners and pit and fissure sealants; and for temporary crown and porcelain repair, small core buildup and veneer cementation.
 
Because of their lower filler content, flowables are more flexible (less rigid) than their universal counterparts and are often viewed as the go-to materials for abfraction, erosion and Class V restorations. In addition, a higher resin content than universal composites provides an esthetic benefit, with most flowables able to be polished to a long-lasting and high-gloss finish. Esthetics are further enhanced by the materials’ availability in virtually every Vita shade.

Flowables are available in various viscosities for superior flowability or packing.
With dozens of brands and hundreds of products to choose from, clinicians who research manufacturer specs on properties such as hardness, comprehensive strength, flexural strength and modulus of elasticity are most likely to select the best flowable composite for the procedure at-hand.

    As a self-confessed dental geek, I’m a sucker for good clinical videos that show the steps of a case and clearly explain what’s happening. This video with Dr. Daniel J. Poticny, showing the replacement of two old amalgam restorations, is particularly good. He chooses to place an inlay on tooth No. 13 and an onlay on tooth No. 14. Dr. Potincy,...

    There’s always that one person who ruins it for the rest of us. The football team that lets air out of the ball to gain an advantage. The passenger in a car accident who fakes an injury to get a settlement. A college student who cheats on an exam. Even a dentist who wipes off ‘single-use’ burs and uses them again. I’m sure that nearly every...
