Home Explore Restorative Class II Solution

The Class II Solution

is the only comprehensive Class II approach for more efficient clinical outcomes and bottom-line results.

When the Class II procedure accounts for almost half of direct restorations1, it’s time to rethink what it means to your practice.

Class II Restorations

are more important to your practice than you might think. In fact, they account for almost half of all direct restorations.

The number one reason for composite failures is recurrent caries and the floor  of the proximal box is the most vulnerable area.2

That's why Dentsply Sirona Restorative has developed the first and only Complete Solution for the Class II procedure. From our industry-leading products to continuing education opportunities and expert clinical and product support, it's a holistic solution for optimizing every touch point in a Class II restoration.

Class II Insights

Dentists face a variety of challenges in every step of a Class II restoration procedure. The longevity of each case depends on taking control of as many variables as possible. Here are a few insights on approaching key areas of a Class II.

97% of clinicians say that achieving proper isolation of a Class II cavity is difficult in at least 1 out of 10 cases.³

Palodent V3 - Sectional Matrix System

Isolate the restorative field.

Clinical success starts with a solid foundation.

When using resin-based restoratives, both isolation and accurate contact creation are essential for success. Choose a matrix system that not only provides anatomically accurate contacts, but also helps create a tight seal around the restorative field.

The Palodent V3 system is designed to create predictable, accurate contacts, a tight gingival seal, and can be configured for multiple restorations at once.
