The appearance of technique of adhesive obstruction was a real revolution in dentistry. It is about composite materials which create a chemical bond with the hard tooth substance by using special adhesives. This feature allows using minimally invasive preparations consisting of strict removal of carious tooth substance, magnification methods (magnifying lens and/ or microscope) bringing extra precision to the maneuvers execution.
Because the technique of adhesive obstruction implies a dry working field, use of insulating rubber dam is mandatory. This allows a perfect adhesion between the tooth and the obstruction material, increasing long-term success rate of dental restoration.
Last but not least, the design of the obstruction must strictly obey the general functional and aesthetic principles, but it is customized for the clinical situation of each case.
