Step by step protocol: Restoring the first upper molar
Lots of dentists often have difficulties in restoring the natural occlusal anatomy of posterior teeth, especially because of the occlusion aspects which must be considered.
This article’s aim is to illustrate in a didactic way a step by step protocol for getting a good morphology for our class I direct restorations on the first upper molar.
Regardless of what treatment is to be carried out, it is very important to follow a good protocol, and this principle is also available for class I direct composite restorations on the first upper molar. Following the steps described in a stepwise manner (Img. 26), it will be easier and with more predictable results to restore this type of cavity.
I would like to thank Dr. Lazar Dan for his support the writing of this article.
