Composite Resin is an extremely versatile and essential material in a dentist's inventory. These materials are technique sensitive, but if applied correctly they can help us provide beautiful and aesthetic restorations to our patients at a fraction of the cost as compared to indirect restorations. Apart from being bio-mimetic and minimally invasive, an added advantage of using these materials is reduced dependency on a Dental Lab technician for good results. And since it is done chairside, everything is in the operator's control.

One of the biggest complaints we face in Class 2 type restorations is food impaction due to improper contacts. When we used the matrix systems meant for amalgam to make our composite restorations, we managed to seal the Class 2 preparations. However, creating proper inter proximal contact was difficult and food lodgment was a common complaint we had to face .

The main thing in any dental treatment is to sustain the perfect occlusion. It could be centric or retruded. But I think we need to stress upon the Myocentric. Myocentric occlusion is the occlusal relationship between mandible and maxilla that minimizes the need for muscles accommodation and posturing, and allows normal decompression of neural and vascular intra capsular tissue and associated connective tissue. It provides the optimal condylar position that we strive to achieve in a gnathic system that may have become pathologic due to previous condylar positional discrepancies leading to TMD (Tempero-mandibular dysfunctions). This can be explained only with the help of an actual knowledge in the sciences of Neuromuscular Dentistry (NMD). The science of NMD is well chronicled in hundreds of scientific articles and textbooks including past anthologies.

The most common recommendation of dentists to patients is to brush twice a day, clean your tongue, use a mouth rinse and floss regularly. Flossing is in fact the one recommendation of dentists that patients find most difficult to do. Dentists, nevertheless, have insisted that flossing prevents gum disease and dental caries. But is there enough evidence that flossing is really essential to your overall oral health? Raging on the internet and many dental associations across the world is now a debate on whether flossing is of any help at all. It all started after a recent story by Associated Press (AP) that there is little evidence that flossing actually works. They reported that when the federal government issued its latest dietary guidelines, the recommendation of flossing had been removed. Even the government acknowledged that the effectiveness of flossing had never been researched as required. Dr.Niranjan Prabhakar, Executive Editor DT SEA speaks to two eminent Periodontists in India, Dr.Sudhindra Kulkarni and Dr.Rajeev Chitguppi to understand what they make of this new development in Oral health care. Is it good to say, good bye to flossing? Let us find out.
