A survey type of study to know materials and methods used by private clinicians for gingival dilation

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Mohd Altaf Tantray and Dr. Beenish Javed
ABSTRACT:
The marginal integrity of the fixed prosthesis can be achieved by finish line exposure. Different materials and methods are used for finish line exposure to get emergence profile and prosthesis in harmony with adjacent soft tissue.
Purpose: The study was conducted to determine approaches of gingival retraction used by private dentists.
Materials and Methods: A questionnaire was prepared and sent to 134 clinicians. Only 120 clinicians responded. The data collected was analysed statistically.
Results: This study showed that 67% the clinicians used retraction cord for gingival dilation, 15.9% the chemical impregnated cord, 10% and 7.1% the advanced medicaments like magic foam cord.
Conclusion: The increased level of knowledge and information about gingival displacement materials and methods shall definitely improve the periodontal health and increase clinical longevity of the fixed prosthesis.
