ADA Clinical Evaluators (ACE) Panel
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.

ACE Panel Reports
ACE Panel Reports are generated from your input in short studies about these experiences. Then, with guidance from the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs and Product Evaluation subcommittee, the ADA Science Institute staff compiles and shares the data with the ACE Panel members.
With an average time commitment of less than 10 minutes a month, the ACE Panel offers panel members with:
- The opportunity to network with colleagues about the latest dental products, devices and materials
- Influence the topics and materials evaluated at the ADA Science Institute
- Learn firsthand unbiased feedback exclusively from ADA members about: preferred brands, factors considered during material selection and overall user experience
