Hi,

I completed a distolingual composite resin restoration on a canine. However to my dismay, I realized I did not insert a celluloid strip between the canine and the adjacent premolar after curing the resin. I was unable to floss through the teeth and could not fit the 3M strip through either. How can I resolve this??

I was told that it may debond due to physiological movement of the teeth. Is there any solution or is redoing the entire restoration the only way out? Please help. I feel really awful for my patient. I'm a dental student and this is my first cons on a real patient. Will appreciate any useful advice.

I really do hope I don't have to redo the entire restoration as my patient has a fear of local anesthesia..

Did your instructor not check the patient when you were finished? I remember what it was like to be a dental student. I would talk to your instructor. The tooth will not "debond" itself. In my opinion, the filling will need to be redone so the patient can floss properly.

Yes my tutor did check the patient and tried to separate the teeth with a polishing strip. My tutor said that I may have to redo the restoration at the next appointment. Thank you.
