The Sandwich Restoration Dental Technique
The sandwich restoration dental technique was developed by McLean and Wilson in 1977. The technique was called “sandwich” because the finished product resembles it. As with the two pieces of bread, we have composite resin above and the tooth structure below; meanwhile in between them is the resin-modified glass ionomer. The purpose of the procedure is to combine the advantages of glass ionomer fillings and composite resin to achieve better results.
In this blog, we will explore the sandwich technique: the different types and materials used, its benefits, and the clinical steps involved.
