Marginal adaptation of class I ceramic restorations-A retrospective analysis

Introduction: Ceramic inlay is a more appealing option than metal class I or class II restorations. Their principal application is in the treatment of impaired posterior teeth with healthy buccal and lingual walls. These restorations allow you to keep your natural tooth structure while also benefiting from the mechanical advantages of contemporary adhesive technology, which can help to strengthen a weak tooth. A feasible alternative to amalgam or cast gold restoration is ceramic inlays. Materials and Methods: A total of 58 class I ceramic restoration data were extracted from Dental information archive system (DIAS) of Saveetha dental college. The ceramic Inlay restorations were analysed and graded accordingly on shade matching and marginal adaptation. Results: 70.7 % of the patients were between 20 to 35 years old. 55.2 % were Male. 36.2 % of Class I ceramic restorations were done in 37 followed by 34.5 % in 47. 44.8 % were graded as Good and 34.5 % were graded as very good. Conclusion: The ceramic inlay allows a new alternative restoration treatment for aesthetic restoration of posterior compromised teeth. For the success of any indirect restoration, it is imperative that good marginal adaptations are deemed necessary to prevent marginal leakage.
