Using Occlusal Stamping Technique with The Greater Curve

Introduction to the case

Examined one of my original Sonicfills. It was a 2 years old large MO composite on #31. Margins were excellent except for a small hard pit void on an occlusal margin. I don’t blame that on the SonicFill material, I can be guilty of such a thing with any composite material. This is conjecture, but I believe the downward forceful pressure of the stamp technique will reduce the occurrence of marginal defects.

Introduction to the case

Under a rubber dam positioning marginal ridges on multiple teeth can be tenuous. If the marginal ridges are too high there is a risk of adjusting through the contact when finalizing the occlusion. The Greater Curve system allows you to create contacts with depth. The risk of adjusting through the contact is mitigated.
