Les résines composites d'obturation en masse : les "bulk-fill"

Abstract : Direct composite restorations in the posterior dentition have become an indispensable element of modern dentistry. The layering procedure of composite with a maximum thickness of 2mm, is usually carreid out in an elaborate technique. New composite resins, termed “bulk-fill” resins, are now available on the dental market for use in single-increment applications up to 4–5 mm. The main modifications made to polymerize materials in a single layer with a maximum thickness of 4 mm are an increased translucency, and modifications of the polymerization system (addition of photosensitizers, new initiator).There are two families of bulk-fill composites: bulk-fill modelable, with a high viscosity and bulk-fill flowable, with a low viscosity. Despite good results, bulk-fill composites show aesthetic limitations and additional clinical studies are needed to support the current results.
