Defective restoration repair or replacement

When encountering a defective restoration, it can be difficult to know whether to repair the existing restoration or replace it. In the latest ACE Panel report, clinicians explain how they are making these decisions and the technical aspects they consider when making a repair. The report provides a look into the clinical cases, techniques, and materials most associated with restoration repair.  

Check out the report, published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, to see how your clinical experience with restoration repair and replacement aligns with those of your colleagues and to learn about tactics for safely and effectively addressing defects.
