A 48-years-old female patient, smoker, presented a secondary lesion under a previous amalgam restoration on premolar 15, a secondary lesion under composite restoration on premolar 14 distal and a new carious lesion on molar 16 mesial. The following case shows the direct composite restoration of the lesions using the Polydentia myClip 2.0, LumiContrast sectional matrix system and wood wedges.
1: Pre-operative view of 14 and 15 premolar and 16 molar showing a previous composite amalgam filling on the 15, a secondary carious lesion under previous composite restoration on the 14d and carious lesion on molar 16m.
2: Preoperative X-Ray view.
3: Prepared cavities.
4: Insulation of 15 using Teflon tape. The 16 equipped with the LumiContrast Ring, LumiContrast sectional matrix and wooden wedges. Delta Tubes have been used to
improve the adaptation of the LumiContrast matrix to the palatine wall. The cavity has been than filled with composite. The same procedure has been applied for the restoration of the class II cavity on the 14.
5: Occlusal view before finishing and polishing.
6: Complete restoration of 14 and 16.
7: #15 presenting a MOD cavity has been equipped with the LumiContrast ring on the distal surface and myClip 2.0 on mesial, LumiContrast sectional matrices and wooden wedges.
8: As first, the distal interproximal wall of the 15 has been restored. Further the sectional matrix has been removed using myQuickmatrix forceps.
9: Restoration of the mesial surface.
10: #15 after restoration of the distal and mesial interproximal walls.
11: The occlusal cavity filled with composite before finishing and polishing.
12: Post-operative view of the restoration.
13: Follow up image showing the restoration after 2.5 months.
The myClip 2.0 is a very useful tool for posterior class II restoration. It’s easy to handle, the tines have a geometry and rigidity which allow to form the matrix very effectively
on the palatine and buccal walls. This saves time for the finishing steps and ensures a good proximal morphology.
The LumiContrast sectional matrix kit is a very reliable and established solution for the restoration of Class II MOD cavities.

Class II cavity direct composite restoration on a young permanent premolar – myClip 2.0 – Dr Marina Papachroni
For young patients rebuilding the anatomy in class II cavity restorations is a major issue but not making too many occlusal adjustments after finishing the layering procedures is one of the same importance aspects. The following images show the step-by-step treatment we performed for treating decay on the upper first premolar of a 15-year-old teenager. ...
Class II cavity direct restoration on young permanent molar with myQuickmat Forte – Dr Marina Papachroni
Class II (interproximal) decay involves the proximal surface of a posterior tooth and it is a common occurrence in many dental patients. One challenge for the clinician is to accurately recreate a physical contact to the adjacent tooth and, at the same time, to restore proper interproximal anatomic form. This case involves a teenager 16 years old with an interproximal lesion in his left lower molar (#36)....
