Share Abstract:

Temporary tooth separation in the treatment of approximal carious lesions


Pages: 249-252
PMID: 8941842

The tunnel preparation is among the techniques proposed for restoration of approximal carious lesions. The preparation minimizes the sacrifice of sound tooth structure. The diagnostic and management problems associated with the restricted access to the approximal area, however, have limited use of this treatment modality. The difficulty of ascertaining the possible loss of enamel surface integrity is overcome by temporary tooth separation, which permits direct visual and tactile examination of approximal sites. Additionally, the increased access facilitates both preparation of the cavity and placement of the restorative material.
