Local inflammatory effects of composite resins.

Author information

Department of Oral Diagnostic Sciences, School of Dental Medicine, State University of New York at Buffalo, USA.


Composite resins have been widely used as an anterior restorative material and often have been used to restore posterior teeth. However, composites occasionally can become embedded in oral soft tissues during finishing or shaping procedures, which can lead to persistent chronic inflammation. Limited evaluation in animal model systems has shown that this entrapment in soft tissues can sometimes lead to local inflammation in adjacent soft tissues. Consequently, finishing and polishing procedures should be performed, where practical.
