Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Dental Marginal Adaptation
Dental marginal adaptation refers to the close fit and proper alignment of the edges (margins) of a dental restoration, such as a filling or crown, with the adjacent tooth structure. In healthcare, it is an important aspect of dental care because it helps to ensure the longevity of the restoration, prevent decay and leakage, and maintain proper oral hygiene.
To achieve optimal marginal adaptation, the dentist will carefully prepare the tooth for the restoration, taking into account the shape, size, and location of the tooth and the type of restoration being used. The dentist will then place the restoration and adjust it as necessary to ensure a proper fit. The dentist will also check the fit of the restoration using dental instruments such as a dental explorer or a dental probe.
Proper marginal adaptation is important because if it is not done correctly, it can lead to problems such as decay, leakage, and recurrent dental caries. This can ultimately lead to more extensive and costly treatment.
