A 61-year-old male patient with a heavily restored dentition had problems in a maxillary premolar region. One tooth was poor, the other was compromised.

This allows the region to be converted to a cantilever bridge if the tooth should fail.
This reaction came sometime after the placement of the final restoration. What could cause this to happen?

When used intra-orally they should not be used for more than one month as they tend to soften. Read More
