Share Abstract:

Improved Marginal Seating of Cast Restorations Using A Silicone Disclosing Medium


Pages: 323-326
PMID: 1811624

This study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of a silicone disclosing medium, G-C Fit-Checker, as an aid in the improvement of marginal integrity. Standardized preparations were made on 42 freshly extracted premolars. Base metal alloy castings were finished externally and initially adjusted internally. The castings were placed on their respective teeth and the marginal opening was determined. They were then adjusted twice using the silicone material and remeasured. The preadjustment mean marginal opening was 92 microns and the postadjustment measurement 55 microns, yielding a mean reduction of 37 microns (SEM 3 microns) or 39%.
