Fundamentals of Cavity

  •   Tooth preparation is defined as the mechanical alteration of a defective, injured, or diseased tooth to best receive a restorative material that will reestablish a healthy state for the tooth, including esthetic corrections where indicated, along with normal form and function.     (Sturdevant)
  •   Tooth preparation can be defined as “the mechanical preparation and / or the chemical treatment of the remaining tooth structure, which enables it to accommodate a restorative material without incurring mechanical or biological failure”.
    • FINAL STAGE (Second Stage)
