The Styleitaliano Essential Flow Program

Aim of this program is to assist dentists in their decision making when using flowable composite restoratives, showcasing clinical examples of various indications.

The 3M flowable composite restoratives offer several advantages that make them suitable for different clinical situations.

All indications are based on the properties of the 3M™ Filtek™ Supreme Flowable Restorative (in visible areas) and 3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative (in non-visible areas).

StyleItaliano Clinical Indications:

3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable

Adapt

The high flowability of the material makes it ideal for use as a liner for the cavity; creating a thin, protective layer.

The ability of this composite resin to adapt to the cavity base are superb. The layer thickness should be as low as possible, which can be easily achieved due to the excellent flowability, without compromising physical properties.

ADVANTAGES

  • Low stress
  • 4 mm curing depth
  • Mechanical strength
  • Virtually no bubbles or run-on
  • One-step placement up to 4 mm
  • Low shrinkage and low polymerization stress

In some hard to reach areas of a cavity and when using a conventional composite, this material can create a perfect adaptive interface between the two surfaces.

The flowability, in conjunction with its excellent uniform extrusion without bubbles makes this material ideal for adapting other restorative materials.

It can be used as a layer between two composite resin surfaces or between composite resin and natural tooth (ex. Class II restorations).

Undercut

Its handling allows to block-out undercuts in cavities before placement of the final restoration.
The physical properties and its flowability makes it an ideal material for restoring without bubbles in a predictible way.
The flowability facilitates an easy adaptation to the cavity walls, reducing the possibilities of internal voids or marginal flaws.

ADVANTAGES

  • Low stress
  • 4 mm curing depth
  • Mechanical strength
  • Virtually no bubbles or run-on
  • One-step placement up to 4 mm
  • Low shrinkage and low polymerization stress
3M™ Filtek™ Bulk Fill Flowable Restorative

The physical and chemical properties makes this an ideal material to create a cavity base, especially in the posterior area, followed by an additional layer of a conventional resin composite for the occlusal surface.

To enhance the final aesthetic result and longevity, it can be combined with other restorative materials, for example using the Bulk & Body Technique.

Clinical usage

CLINICAL CASE BY DR WALTER DEVOTO – STYLEITALIANO FOUNDER

In this case, dr Walter Devoto used the latest 3M flowable technology. According to the manufacturer, this syringe virtually eliminates bubbles in a restoration, dr Devoto wanted to test it in the most difficult situation: a small and esthetic restoration of the incisal edge in a young patient after a trauma, without any preparation of the residual tissue.

Bubbles seem not to be an issue anymore, and this is a big step forward in addition to dentist’s needs. The esthetic outcome in this specific application looks very good, as well as the easy achievement of finishing and polishing. Challenge accepted and accomplished!
