How Can Gingivitis Cause Heart Disease
I’m not a dentist, so sometimes my patients are surprised when I tell them I want to look at their teeth and gums. Here’s why I do it… Your mouth is an early warning system for serious conditions throughout your body. Whatever is going on with your oral health gives me a pretty good idea of what’s going on with all your major organs and systems. It makes sense because everything in your body is connected biologically. And your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body. It’s also home to around 100 billion bacteria. Most dentists are concerned when those bacteria cause tooth decay and gum d...

50 Healthy Resolutions That Aren't Losing Weight
It’s fair to say that 2016 wasn’t a popular year (to put it mildly). But while we may be ready to embrace 2017 with open arms, there’s one mistake many of us will probably bring into the New Year: focusing on the wrong resolution. If data published in 2015 is any indication, many of us will pledge to lose weight. However, the problem with focusing solely on the scale is that it isn’t necessarily beneficial or indicative of our well-being. Not to mention the fact that concentrating on a pants size may make us ignore all the other aspects of wellness (like self-esteem or empathy, for example). Of...

ConclusionsMinimum cavity preparations are advised for posterior resin composite restorations, preserving the greatest amount of healthy tooth structure. For resin composite restorations only the caries lesion needs to be removed with all remaining tooth structure protected for the bonding process.

Newer bulkfill restorative resins allow the operator to complete the restoration in a similar time to the placement of a dental amalgam restoration. (Source: Dental Technology Blog)
