1

What do early lesions look like?

Chalky-white color

2

What do later lesions look like?

Dark-colored

3

Where are most class II caries located?

Just under the interproximal contact
Due to food impaction, insufficient brushing, no flossing

4

What are the negatives of Class II treatment?

Can damage adjacent tooth
Limited lifetime of the restoration (everything fails eventually)
Weakens the remaining tooth structure (especially cusps)

5

What are the two approaches to prep a Class II?

Occlusal - most common, weakens cusps by removing marginal ridge
Facial/Lingual - mostly for root caries, done as tissue receedes

6

What is the axial depth for a Class II prep?

Premolars = 1mm
Molars = 1.2-1.5mm

7

What are the BL contact dimensions for a Class II prep?

Ideally break contacts with 0.5mm clearance

8

What are some retentive features of a Class II prep?

Convergence of B and L walls
Retentive grooves in gingivo-axial corners of the prep

9

T/F - The farther anterior the Class II, the more retentive features are needed

False - the more posterior, the more retentive features needed to resist extrusive forces
Especially in preps with no occlusal component
