N2 - Direct placement resin composite is revolutionizing the restoration of posterior teeth. Compared to amalgam, its use not only improves aesthetics but, more importantly, promotes a minimally invasive approach to cavity preparation. Despite the benefits, the use of composite to restore load-bearing surfaces of molar and premolar teeth is not yet universally applied. This may be due to individual practitioner concerns over unpredictability, time and the fact that procedures remain technique sensitive for many, particularly with regard to moisture control, placement and control of polymerization shrinkage stress. New materials, techniques and equipment are available that may help to overcome many of these concerns.
