1

Aims of restoration of carious primary teeth?

Eradicate disease and restore health
Prevent pain
Avoid infection
Preserve space
Simplest treatment for child
Comfortable/efficient mastication

2

What materials are generally used in CDH?

GIC
Composites
Pre-formed metal crowns

3

Why should you try and conserve primary molars?

Keep teeth in position until permanent molars are ready to erupt

4

What patient factors influence cavity design and choice of material?

Age - is the tooth ready to exfoliate, how long will it need to last, can they cope with LA
Caries risk
Co-operation
Aesthetic

5

What tooth factors influence cavity design and choice of material?

How close to exfoliation
Extent of caries
Cavity shape once caries removed

6

Management of anterior lesions?

Composite/compomer
Maybe inter proximal stripping? - remove contact points

7

Materials considered to anterior teeth?

GIC
Composite
Compomers

8

Management of posterior cavity?

Pre-formed metal crowns
GIC
Compomer
Composite

9

Advantages of GIC?

Adhesive
Aesthetic
Fluoride leaching

10

Disadvantages of GIC?

Long setting time
Brittle
Susceptible to erosion and wear
Radiolucent
Risk of further caries

11

What material is used to fissure sealant?

GIC

12

Advantages of compomer?

Adhesive
Aesthetic
Command set
Simple to handle
Radioopqaue

13

Advantages of composites?

Adhesive
Aesthetic
Comparable wear properties to amalgam
Command set

14

Disadvantages of composites?

technique sensitive
Need to use rubber dam - LA
Diagnosing secondary caries is a problem
Expensive
Need good co-operation and low caries rate

15

What is the gold standard for paediatric restoration?

Pre-formed metal crown

16

How is the tooth prepared for pre-formed metal crowns?

QOP rule
Hall technique

17

Describe hall technique?

Accurate assessment of tooth
No caries removed, no tooth preparation, no LA
