Case report: The use of universal highly aesthetic nano-hybrid composite for restoration of primary molars

Milena Todorova Georgieva-Dimitrova


INTRODUCTION: The most interesting aspect of dental practice can be pediatric dentistry. Primary posterior molars can be restored with aesthetic resin-based composite materials. Restorative dentistry offers different choices for practitioners. The most important factor for choosing resin-based composite for children is a satisfactory cooperative behavior.

AIM: The aim of this article is to show the opportunity for restoration of primary molars with universal high aesthetic nano-hybrid composite.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: The child’s level of cooperation was assessed before the treatment using the Frankel scale. In this study a universal nano-hybrid composite (Omnichroma) was used for restoration of mandibular primary molar – 75.

RESULTS: A 4-year-old girl came to the dental office. After the intraoral examination an occlusal carious lesion on the left mandibular primary molar was established. The child was cooperative and allowed local anaesthesia followed by rubber dam isolation. A minimally invasive preparation of the cavity was performed. The tooth was restored with a highly aesthetic universal nano-hybrid composite Omnichroma layer by layer.

CONCLUSION: Resin composites are a method of treatment for primary dentition. The contemporary generation of composites, such as universal composite Omnichroma provide, excellent aesthetic result as filling material as well as long-term wear resistance.
