Les caractéristiques des composites bulk fill : une revue systématique de la littérature

Abstract : Objectives: The main purpose of this review is to study the following parameters: depth of cure (DOC), degree of conversion (DC) and polymerization shrinkage, of bulk fill resin-based composites in the context of coronary restorations. In a second time, it also addresses the question of the use of these bulk fill composite in the daily practice. Materials and Methods: The literature review is based on the PubMed, SienceDirect and EBSCO databases. It includes 80 articles up to 07/08/18. Results: As claimed by composites manufacturers, most of the bulk fill resin tested sustained a depth of cure of 4mm. Flowable composites reach a better degree of conversion than the packable composites. On the other hand packable forms show less polymerization shrinkage than the flowable forms. Conclusion: The variation of the results - both between composites and across different studies for a single composite - as well as their dispersion (high relative standard deviation) demand to be cautious in our interpretation. Before drawing further conclusions, it is therefore necessary to design specific standardized protocols for the study of bulk fill composites.
