Indirect Resin Composite in Anterior Rehabilitation (Pressed Resin)
Argolinha, Inês / Rua, João / Machado, Vanessa / Botelho, João / Antunes, Maria João
Case Report: Male patient with 71 years old referred as main complaint that failing to eat properly. He was upper total edentulous and lower partial edentulous, showing severe wear attrition of the remaining teeth (42, 41, 31, 32, 33). The patient had an inadequate upper acrylic denture. We proposed the rehabilitation of the remaining teeth with the adhesion of indirect composite resins and the rehabilitation of the upper arch with a conventional acrylic resin denture and the mandibular rehabilitation with a new flexible acrylic resin denture.
Conclusions: With this technique we were able to achieve adequate aesthetic and function in a short period of time.
Discussion: Indirect resins, made on dental models, have been more used due to the decrease of polymerization contraction, easy technique with improved anatomy, better polishing, and stronger contact points. There are significant mechanical properties improvements of indirect resins, because of the higher monomer conversion rate. The technique used in this case (silicone key) enable the dentist to present a viable alternative and of easy making, allowing the restoration of function and aesthetic in severe teeth wear cases.
